Students are thrilled after receiving A-Level results that have enabled the vast majority to obtain places at a Russell Group University.

Just under 90 per cent of the results of students at Eltham College, Mottingham, were graded A* to B.

Head Prefect Freddie Foster, who achieved three A* grades in Biology, Chemistry and Maths, said: “I am so pleased with my results and to get my place at Durham University to read Natural Sciences. I am taking a Gap Year first to play cricket in Australia and will be able to go away now and have a great time.”

Other students celebrating an amazing set of results include Harry O’Donohue with four A* grades, who is also taking a Gap year, Molly Atkinson with two A* and an A grade who takes up her offer to study Psychology at Bath, and Will Epps with 3A* grades who will study PPE at Exeter.

Retiring Headmaster, Mr Paul Henderson, said: “We are very pleased with these results which are testimony to their hard work, commitment and dedication. They have received fantastic support from their families, friends and teachers and we are delighted that so many are now able to move on to their first choice university and course, many at Russell Group universities.”

The College’s strong music tradition continues with Music Scholars Antony Daly and Will Smith both going to read Music at Cambridge and Oxford universities respectively.
