All A* and A for a third of A-level students

Thursday 17 August 2017

A third of students at The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL) achieved all their A-levels at A*or A grades.

Sixty students celebrated as they picked up the coveted grades with 16 scooping three or more straight A*s today (Thursday August 17).

Of the 16 who swept the board with the top grade, five students achieved four A*s and a further 11 achieved three A*s.

In all, 54 per cent of the cohort achieved a minimum of ABB grades – the entry requirement of leading universities.

  • 20 per cent – a fifth of this year’s grades – were passes at A*
  • 50 per cent of grades at A*and A
  • 74 per cent of grades at A*-B
  • 9 Oxbridge places are confirmed

Principal Sue Woodroofe said: “This is the first cohort of students to take the more rigorous reformed A-levels and I’m delighted that a third of our students achieved straight A*/A grades and three-quarters of grades were A*-B.

“This is an excellent set of results and, thanks to the dedication and hard work of our students and staff, this impressive group of young people are well placed to enjoy continued success at university and beyond.”
