Hayes School is celebrating its best ever A Level results Hayes School is celebrating its best ever A Level results

One of the most nerve-wracking days of student’s lives has arrived, A Level results day.

Moving away from coursework and modular exams, many students opening their envelopes today have taken exams at the end of the school year, piling on the pressure as they prepare for life after sixth form.

But the change didn’t mean much to students at Charles Darwin School in Biggin Hill, where 98 per cent of students passed their exams and 83 per cent of grades ranged from A* to C.

“Our sixth form students have again achieved some fantastic grades,” said headteacher Sunil Chotai.

“The results received today are absolutely outstanding and they are a tribute to the hard work and commitment of both students and teaching staff in a year that has again seen considerable national volatility.”

Highly selective St Olave’s Grammar School boasted results of 75 per cent A* or A grades among its students, with 10 students achieving four A*s and Bilal Chughtai gaining four A*s and two S/Outstanding grades in his Cambridge entrance exams.

Nearly 40 students applied to Oxford and Cambridge schools with the majority achieving the necessary grades.

Hayes School achieved its best ever results with one in three grades either A* or A.

The mixed secondary saw 20 students pick up three A* or A grades in all of their subjects.

Principle Stephen Whittle said: “These results are very well deserved and represent significant hard work and commitment from students at a time of significant change to A-Levels. I am especially grateful, as I am sure are students, to staff for their outstanding teaching and to parents and carers for their support.”

At Ravens Wood School, 70 per cent of grades were between A* to C, earning praise from head Sally Spence: “It is always inspiring to see two years of hard work come to fruition, and so many of our students have now achieved the grades required to secure their places at higher education or apprenticeships. They have worked extremely hard and we wish them every success in their future endeavors.”

In Orpington, nearly half of grades were between A* and B at Darrick Wood School, with key successes included Amy Tomkins, who will read French and Spanish at Oxford.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
