A level results 2016

Staff and students at Chichester High School are delighted to see the excellent performance of last year repeated again this year at A-level.  This means that our students are now able to take up their chosen university courses.

Students completing their courses this year achieved 44% A*-B pass rate which equals our achievement in 2015.

The overall pass rate is 99% which is above the national average and we are particularly excited in our rise to 71%, of students achieving A*- C grades. We are pleased and proud that 63.8% of our students gained at least one top grade (A*-B) at A2.

We have two students who have offers confirmed at Cambridge University:

Georgia Barber achieved A*A*A*A and has been offered a place at Cambridge University to read Classics at Peterhouse.

Stella Swain achieved A*A*A A and has been offered a place at Cambridge University to read English at Churchill College.

In addition to these students our top performers are:

Mia Edwards              University of Manchester to read Human, Social and Political Sciences

Emily Byfield-Riches, who will be taking a gap year before applying for University.

We are also very proud to have had several students awarded unconditional offers this year. John Blanding who will read Classical Civilisation and Philosophy at the University of Roehampton, Oliver Dixon who has been awarded a Tennis and Academic scholarship at the University of Emporia in Kansas, America and Emily Mason who won a scholarship for women in engineering to study Chemical Engineering at Edinburgh University.

It has to be said that we are delighted and proud of all of our students. We are pleased that so many of them now have the opportunity to pursue their dreams and wish them every success in the future. Well done to their teachers and well done to them!
