Elizabeth College pupils have once again achieved excellent results at A level this year with a record 18.4% of results at the top A* grade and 41% at A*/A. The overall pass rate for the 54 Upper Sixth students was 98%.
There were some outstanding individual successes with Head Boy Jack Colley achieving an amazing four A*s at A level plus an additional A* in his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Adil Anees, TJ Fitzgerald and Daniel Galpin all gained three A*s in their subjects.
Based on these results, almost all of the students who applied to university have already had their places confirmed, including three candidates who will shortly start their studies at Oxford University and one at Cambridge. Many others have had places confirmed at top UK universities such as Durham, Warwick, UCL and Bath. In addition a number of students have successfully gained employment and/or further vocational training within various business sectors on the island.
Principal George Hartley is delighted; ‘this is a fantastic set of results for an outstanding group of students who have collectively achieved a new College record of 18.4% A* grades. There are many fine academic scholars in this year group, some of whom did not ‘pass’ the 11+ seven years ago, heading off the UK’s top universities including Oxford and Cambridge. The key thing for us, however, is that the boys achieve the very best they can across our notably broad ability range and are therefore able to follow their own paths and dreams, whether that’s university, music college, art school, the armed forces or heading straight into employment on the island. Once they have found their niche in life they invariably flourish as happy, confident and successful individuals who will make a real difference in their respective fields around the world. Congratulations to all students and also, as ever, our exceptionally committed teachers who have enabled them to achieve such excellent results. ’
