Congratulations Year 13

There were smiling faces at Bishop Luffa School today, as students collected their A-Level results. Despite warnings that there would be fewer top grades awarded, 28% of entries were given A* or A. Similarly, students arrived worried about a squeeze on university places but left happy, as 92% secured either their first or second choice course.

Amongst many notable achievements:

  • Jasmine Karim achieved three A* and an A and is now off to Bristol University to study Medicine
  • Holly Pullen also secured a place to study Medicine at The University of Exeter, having achieved A*AA
  • Will Rhoades achieved A*, A*, A*, A and is going to study Maths and Physics at The University of Warwick
  • Seth Swain achieved three A* grades and will be reading Chemistry at Bristol University
  • Jessica Spencer achieving A*A*A and off to Kings College to study Biomedical Sciences
  • Tom Spencer achieved three A* grades and is off to Cambridge to study Geography
  • Other Oxbridge successes were Tom Bisatt and Matyas Vecsei, who are both off to study Engineering at Oxford and Cambridge respectively
  • Alex Webb is to read Law at Exeter University, having gained A*, A*, A.

And finally, the most remarkable set of results were well and truly earned by Olha Melnychenko, 13An, who achieved A*, A, A, despite only joining us from Ukraine in May last year. She is now off to Southampton University to study Physics with Astronomy.

Head of Sixth Form Jamie Saunders noted ‘we have kept courses running that are in danger of dying out in school Sixth Forms, such as Music, Dance, DT, Latin and German. We feel that students benefit from a broad curriculum, and with 32 different courses on offer, our students choose their own unique pathway. This helps them when they are interviewing for universities and higher level apprenticeships, as they show real passion for the subjects that they study.’

Austen Hindman, Head Teacher of Bishop Luffa, said: ‘this year group were taking national exams for the first time and have surpassed all reasonable expectations. The character and resilience that they have shown is remarkable. Not only have they endured the pandemic, but they have lost days to industrial action and had a cyber-attack that took out the IT system during their final term at school. It is an incredible achievement and we are very proud of them all.’
