Superb A-level Results

Congratulations to all of our A-level students on their superb A-level results.

Lots of smiling faces here today as students learned that they had achieved what was needed for their next step - university, higher apprenticeship or employment.

So many students achieved or exceeded their targets but individual performances worth mentioning are: at AS - Bethany Clarke (A,A,A,A); Luke Moore (A,A,A,A) and Ryan Piggott (A,A,A,A) and at A2 - Ben Collard (A*,A*,B); Orlagh Condon (A*,A*,B); Isaac Leafe (A*,A*,B); Phoebe Pritchett (A*,A*,B) and Briony Moloney (A,A,B).

Ben Collard said: “I’m very happy with my results and got 100 per cent on three of my maths papers. I’m slightly disappointed in my Chemistry result but overall I’ve got to be pleased that these were really good results.

“I had a conditional offer from Oxford for Maths but have not yet heard whether I have a confirmed place but I’m positive whatever happens I will end up doing Maths at a very good university.

“I’ve really enjoyed it at Kirk Hallam. The staff have been very helpful and the standard of teaching, especially in Maths, has been fantastic and very engaging.

“I’m looking forward to going to university and continuing my studies, meeting new people and making new friends.”

Henry Henshaw received an A in Maths, A in Biology and B in Chemistry and has been accepted by Warwick University to study Bio-Chemistry.

He said: “I checked UCAS this morning and it said I’d been offered a place but you’re never quite sure until you open your results. When you finish your exams, results day seems like ages away and then all of a sudden it has arrived and you’re dying with nerves.

“I’m really pleased with my results and am looking forward to going to Warwick.”

Jesse Lewendon achieved an A in Biology, B in Chemistry and C in Maths. He said: “The exams were really hard this year and at times afterwards you sit and think you’ve messed up. A-Levels are a big jump from GCSEs but a good jump and they really gave me a kick to work hard to achieve my results.

“I have had a confirmed offer to study Bio-Chemistry at Nottingham but I am looking at the possibility of going to Warwick. I’m really looking forward to going to university. It’s a bit scary in a way but it’s exciting to look forward to.”

Gemma Massey got a B in Maths, B in Biology and B in Chemistry. She said: “I’ve been really nervous leading up to results day but relieved once I opened my results and really happy with what I got. A-Levels were very challenging.

“I’m now looking forward to studying Bio-Chemistry at Nottingham. I have been a couple of times and it’s a fantastic environment and I can’t wait to get started.”
