Sixth-form pupils at Woodbridge School are celebrating a successful year of A Level results.
Out of 98 A Level pupils in total, 83.8% achieved A*-C grades and 98.4% achieved A*-E grades. Nearly 40% of candidates secured the equivalent of three A grades at A level, and a further 24% gained at least one A or A* grade.
Neil Tetley, Headteacher at Woodbridge School, said: “We are delighted to see an increase in grades across the board this year, with more pupils achieving A and A* grades. Congratulations to our A Level pupils, who should all be very proud of their excellent results. Throughout their time with us, it has been wonderful to see pupils develop in to confident, resilient and independent young adults and we wish them all the best for the future.”
Sixth-form pupil Sami Shubbar is over the moon with his six A Levels, all at A or A* grade, in Maths, Further Maths, Computing, Physics, Chemistry and Art. Sami has secured a place at Imperial College in London to study Electrical and Electronic Engineering from September, after which he hopes to begin a globe-trotting career in Electronics Research.
Sami said: “I feel that the world is my oyster! I’m really looking forward to moving to London, and to study in such a fascinating city.”
Another success at Woodbridge School is Alex Appleton, who is thrilled with his three A*’s and one A grade. Alongside his A Levels, Alex also taught himself Further Maths at AS Level in his spare time, for which he achieved an A grade.
Alex has always been intrigued by buildings and structures. He is excited to study Civil Engineering at University from September, where he’ll work towards an integrated masters degree.
