Examination Results

The examination results at Elizabeth College reflect the hard work and commitment of our students. It is not just the top grades we celebrate: Elizabeth College has a student body with a broad ability range and it is equally pleasing to recognise the huge progress made, and great results achieved, by students across the spectrum.

It is important that Elizabeth College students achieve the very best they can 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. We encourage all of our students to develop as happy, confident and successful individuals who can make a real difference in their respective fields around the world.
