A Level Exam Results 2021

A-Level Press Release from Bournemouth School

Bournemouth School is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their A levels this summer. Overall, 52% of the grades awarded were A* or A, with 93% A*-C.  The average points score per entry was 44.2 (compared to 42.4, 40.4 and 36.6 in 2019, 2018 and 2017, respectively).

Two students, James Carter and Robbie Pritchard, attained 4A* grades, with a fifth of the cohort attaining the equivalent, in terms of A level points, of 3A*s.  Shay Dhrona, Joseph Jackson and Conrad Yeung also achieved a “clean sweep” of A* grades in all of the subjects that they were studying.  Thomas Ansell (A*A*A) and Maximilian Miramon (A*A*A*A) leave the school to read law at Oxford and Cambridge respectively.  Ten students have secured places to study medicine or dentistry.

This year, following the cancellation of exams, grades were awarded through a process of teacher-assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the examination boards.  Students sat formal examinations towards the end of Year 13, which were marked and moderated by teachers to form the mainstay of the evidence upon which the grades awarded were based.

Dr Dorian Lewis, the school’s headteacher said: “We are immensely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year. Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students that the teacher assessed grades were determined in a fair and objective manner, using all of the evidence at our disposal. These outstanding results will enable the majority of our students to progress to further education and study; we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”
