Outstanding A Level Results 2019
We are once again celebrating our students’ outstanding A level results, with 81% of all grades achieved at A*-B (up from 77% in 2018) and an impressive 50% at A*-A (up from 47% in 2018). These excellent outcomes will enable the overwhelming majority of our students to embark confidently on the university courses of their choice or to pursue other exciting options. Eight of our 107 candidates have obtained three or more A* grades, so many congratulations to Joshua Blair, Harroop Bola, Alexander Coawn, Zain Girach, Keshen Pathmanathan, William Peet, Ellen Rogers and Marcus Teo.
A particular mention should go to our top-performer, Harroop Bola, who joined our Sixth Form as a Sir Thomas White Scholarship holder. Harroop has received four straight A* grades for Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics, securing his place at Imperial College to study Medicine. Among the numerous success stories, we are thrilled that Sam Eveleigh attained two A*s and an A grade (in PE, Geography and History) to ensure a place at Durham on a Sport Science degree course. In the meantime, he has also been offered a professional contract with Leicester Tigers!
“We are very proud both of our students and of the staff, who have been so committed to their success and happiness. They leave us not only with great academic accolades, but also having benefited from all the other opportunities which characterise the Leicester Grammar Sixth Form. We have no doubt that they will make a powerful and generous contribution to our world.”
John Watson, Headmaster
