A Levels: Head congratulates pupils at Oundle School

The head teacher at The Oundle School has congratulated students after more than half the grades awarded were an A or A*.

A total of 22% of grades awarded were at A* or equivalent, with 53% A*A and 81% A*–B. Twenty Cambridge and Oxford candidates have so far secured their places, alongside the large majority of pupils who have been able to confirm their places at their Firm or Insurance-choice universities. We look forward to hearing further good news regarding the confirmation of university places in the next few days.

Sarah Kerr-Dineen, head at the school said that whilst the overall picture is ‘most encouraging’, it is each individual pupil that the School is now focused on celebrating and supporting as necessary. The difficult process of external moderation of centre-assessed grades has highlighted some situations that will bear further scrutiny. She added: “This group of pupils more than any deserved to have their hard work and abilities recognised fairly after a term of disruption and disappointment that was not of their making. I congratulate them all.”
