A-level students gain excellent results
Students at the Stamford Endowed Schools - Stamford School (boys) and Stamford High School (girls) - are celebrating yet another year of success in their A-level examinations.
Overall the 183 students gained top grades of A or B in 70% of their examinations: 40% of examinations taken were passed at A grade and an impressive 91% of examinations were passed at A, B or C grade standard.
Principal of the Stamford Endowed Schools, Mr Stephen Roberts said
"Yet again the Endowed Schools’ results are excellent and fully deserved by our students. The Sixth Formers have had to work hard for their success and they have been well supported by their teachers. There has been a lot in the press recently about students being disadvantaged by taking ‘easy subjects’. At Stamford the students enjoy a balanced, rigorous and traditional curriculum and this has helped the majority to get into their first choice of university and they will, I am sure, continue to move forwards with confidence and gain further success. The 6th form curriculum demands enormous and consistent efforts by them and their teachers and we congratulate everyone on the hard work and commitment that is necessary to achieve these levels of success.”
Out of the total of 183 students, 44 (1 in 4 of all students) gained at least 3 A grades.
