A-LEVEL RESULTS 2013: The Nobel School, Stevenage

THE incoming headteacher at The Nobel School said he is “absolutely delighted” with a 98% student pass rate at A*-E.

The Stevenage school also achieved 48% A*-B grades and 76% for A*-C.

Martyn Henson, who takes over as headteacher at Nobel in September, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the results of our A-level students this year. These results are the result of considerable hard work, commitment and support from students, staff and parents.

“They include some outstanding individual performances, particularly at the highest levels. We are especially pleased with the number of students who have achieved the highest A* and A grades.

“We are pleased that the vast majority of students have been successful in securing places at the universities of their choice. These results are significantly up on last year but we all remain committed to working towards raising achievement further throughout the school over the coming academic year.”

The head also praised Tej Sthankiya for his “exceptional performance” of three A*s and an A grade at A-level. Tej will be going to Cambridge to study economics next term.

Other outstanding performances came from Amy Brown, Becky O’Connor, Emily Holtham, Jack Horton, Danielle Temple and Melissa Temple, all of whom gained a clean sweep of A* and A grades.
