Best ever ‘A’ level results at Chipping Norton School

 Once again students at Chipping Norton School are celebrating some really outstanding ‘A’ level results. This year the headline A*-B percentage figure is 59%, the best that the school has ever achieved, and for the sixth year in succession the A*-B percentage has been well over 50%. The overall pass rate was an extremely high 99.5%. One quarter of all students achieved two or more A grades and eight students got grades that were all A* or A.

2016 Results

  • A* and A 28%
  • A* and B 59%
  • A* to C 83%
  • A* to E 99%

Especially high performing students include: Leonie Jurkschat (A*A*A*A); Monica Schroeder (A*A*A*); Megan Humphreys (A*A*A); Alice Ortona Coles (A*A*A); Jack Williams-Sharkey (A*AA); Daniel Thompson (AAA); Alisa Mann (AAA); and Poppy Grimes (AAA).

At a time when the pressure on sixth form students seems to be increasing year on year, these results represent the culmination of many hours of dedicated study supported by many hours of teacher input”, said Simon Duffy, Headteacher. “Success at ‘A’ level is always hard won and all of our students at Chipping Norton School deserve congratulation. It has been an exciting morning talking to students about their next steps and celebrating the university places confirmed. I am delighted that so many students have secured places at top universities, including places at Oxford, Cambridge and many Russell Group universities”.

Alan Trainer, Assistant Headteacher, added “I am extremely proud of all of our students who sat ‘A’ level exams this year. The successes they have been celebrating are very well deserved and I look forward to following their progress as they move into the next phase of their lives.”

The children are all very enthusiastic to learn and are looking forward to having lots of fun with Mr Long and Miss Millar from our English Department.

Sad News - Alexander Daniel

Earlier this week we were made aware of the death of Alexander Daniel, a year 13 student. We understand that Alex took his own life. Our thoughts are with Alex’s family and friends. Alex joined our school at the start of year 12. He was well liked by both staff and his fellow students for his quiet but friendly manner.

See headteacher's letter below which includes signposted support.
