In an unprecedented year for A Levels nearly all of Leweston’s leavers have won places at their first choice universities or work placements. The students’ excellent results have enabled Leweston’s leavers to win places at one of the most diverse range of courses the school has seen. This includes three different Medical Schools; Maths and Mechanical Engineering at Imperial; Human Sciences, Arts and Sciences and Biomedical Engineering at UCL; Ancient History, Zoology and Psychology and Royal Holloway and Design for Performance at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama. We are also delighted to have our first Computer Science course at King’s College, London, Cyber Security at Kingston and Integrated Wildlife Conservation at UWE.
The year group achieved an A* to B pass rate of 71% with seven students gaining 13A*s and 10As between them: Zofia B achieved 4A*s and an A, Wiktoria M 3A*s and a 2As, Selina 3A*s and Kate J a Distinction in the Cambridge Pre-U and 2As. Over three quarters of the year group are celebrating at least one A or A* result.
The School’s impressive record in Further Maths continues with 100% A*s, and the Art and Design Department were not far behind with 90% of results at A*. 100% of all English results were A* and A and in the sciences Chemistry achieved 78% and Biology 72% A* to B grades.
Mr Paget-Tomlinson, commented:
“It has been a challenging year for our 2020 leavers. Forced to say goodbye to each other earlier that they expected and missing out on many of the rites of passage usually enjoyed in the final year of school. Over the past few months I have been continually impressed by their support for each other, sense of humour and unfailing positivity. This outstanding set of results is just reward.
Whilst there are clearly some impressive academic results there are many personal triumphs with students outperforming their own expectations. This year, more than ever, this is testament to the hard work they have put in throughout their two year course.
I am sure they will thrive in whatever field of study, or workplace, they go on to. We could not be more proud of them”.
