15th August 2019
The cohort of 2019 have achieved an excellent set of A level results. 84.3% of the entries were graded A*-B, with 57.3% being starred A* or A. Nearly a quarter of entries were graded A*, while 76 students achieved A* or A grades in all their subjects.
The following students obtained four A* grades:
Ethan St. Catherine (who attained one of the highest scores for Mathematics in the country)
Ben Zandonati (5 A* grades)
Students are moving on to a wide range of interesting futures, reflecting the diversity of the cohort. Engineering, Science and Maths are strongly represented, as are key humanities such as Geography and History. Combinations such as Music & Philosophy, and French & English provide students with the chance to study a breadth of content. Students are also pursuing Art Foundation courses, performance courses at Music Conservatoires, a career in the military, and apprenticeships leading to professional qualifications.
While working hard to complete their A levels students have achieved a huge range of other successes as well. For example, Joe Long & Balthasar Issa (pictured above) have represented GB under 18 rowing teams in international competitions. Balthasar is off to Berkeley University, California to puruse his rowing in conjuntion with a Business degree. Elena Accogli has had a busy summer leading the viola section of the National Youth Orchestra, including an appearance at the Proms and in Berlin.
Headmaster David Atkinson said:
“It is a pleasure to be able to report on the success of this group of young people. They have demonstrated so many of the qualities we look for in the leaders of our society during their education, and we wish them well in the next challenges they face. Their aspiration to do their best, their resilience in dealing with the hurdles along the way, and the way in which they have grown as individuals all do them great credit. I am confident that they will make a positive difference in whatever they choose to do next. A key part of a Challoner’s education is the opportunity to identify your own interests and the support to pursue them. As such it is a pleasure to see such a wide range of options being pursued by students. As staff we are proud of these young people, and their families should be as well.”
