Outstanding A Level Results

All members of the Bournemouth School community are celebrating some outstanding A level results.  Overall 49% of grades achieved were A* or A, and 86% A*-C. The average point score per entry was 42.1, in line with that achieved in 2019 and the equivalent of a B+ grade.  Of the 175 students in the cohort, 36% achieved three A levels at grades AAB or higher with two in facilitating subjects. 

There were some outstanding individual performances.  Eight students achieved four A*s.  Five students secured their places at Cambridge or Oxford, and eight students will be leaving to study medicine.

Headteacher, Dr Dorian Lewis, commented:

“All of our students should be congratulated on making it through an incredibly tough two years and showing remarkable resilience. These students were unable to sit GCSEs in 2020 and so this summer’s examinations were the first external assessments that they have undertaken.   Whilst we are thrilled by the many outstanding achievements that we are reporting today, it is important to remember that no-one is defined simply by a set of grades.  All of our students are exceptional, inspiring, and talented young people and we couldn’t be prouder of them.  We are sure that they all have bright futures ahead of them and wish them well.”
