Princethorpe College Celebrates 2023 A-Level Results

17 Aug

Sixth Formers at Princethorpe College are celebrating a strong set of A-level results.

112 students sat A-level and BTEC examinations and completed the Extended Project Qualification this summer. In one of our strongest years to date, 70% of all grades were A*- B, with more than a third being A*- A.

Impressively, 17 high-flyers achieved three or more A* or A grades, however, we are also celebrating many other individual stories of hard work and success.

Grove du Toit, Headmaster, said, “This was the first set of public examinations these students have taken, after their GCSEs were cancelled because of the COVID pandemic. Our young people have coped with disruption to their learning and faced uncertainty and pressure throughout their critical examination years. We are delighted with the results, that reflect the hard work and perseverance of this year group. It has been an extremely demanding time for them all, but happily the overwhelming majority have been accepted onto the various next pathways of their choice. These include University, Apprenticeships, and Gap Year programmes.

He continued, “Our Upper Sixth remained resilient throughout their time in the Sixth Form and I would like to thank our dedicated staff who worked with immense professionalism in supporting our students in their courses, giving them an excellent preparation for their next steps. We are incredibly proud of our Upper Sixth’s academic achievements, but these students are so much more than just their grades and they all have many other fine qualities: kindness, generosity, respect and a strong moral compass, which will be tremendously important for them as they move on to the next phase of their lives. We congratulate them on their well-deserved success and wish them all the very best for the future.”
