Students deliver impressive results on A Level results day

A Level results day
Thursday, August 13, 2015

The Anglo European School is pleased to announce another year of success for its students and staff. Following the announcement of record-breaking results for its International Baccalaureate students which saw them exceed the global average points score yet again, the A level cohort have delivered more impressive results.

Despite a national policy to reduce the number of A/A* grades, the school has increased the number of these grades by 4 percentage points on last year. This has meant that the average points score equates to a set of grades for each student of ABB, as opposed to BBB last year. The numbers of students achieving 2 and 3 A level passes has also increased. Of particular note is that boys perform at least as well as girls, which has been the pattern at the Anglo for some years.

Uniquely, Anglo students can follow a course which includes a mix of A level and IB subjects. This year this particular route in the sixth form was the most successful.

Jody Gee, newly appointed Co-Headteacher at the Anglo: “Results day is always a day of mixed emotions when we celebrate those who have achieved some great results but also when we have to support those who may have just missed their university offers. Our sixth form team are now working to ensure all of our students are able to progress on to university and we are confident that numbers this year will be at least as good as in previous years.”

Stuart Newton, Assistant Head and Director of Sixth Form: “Our students are securing good university places and where the decision is marginal it is clear that the breadth of our curriculum, including its international dimension and languages, and the unique IB courses we offer, including the mixed IB/A level route, are making a real and positive difference to the offers they are receiving.”

David Barrs, co-headteacher, added “This has been a really successful year for what is already an outstanding sixth form. Once more we are really proud of what our students and staff, working together, have achieved.”
