A-LEVEL RESULTS: Fearnhill School, Letchworth

“OUR best ever results” was how the headteacher of Fearnhill School described their A-level results.

The Letchworth GC school achieved record breaking results with an overall pass rate of 99.8 per cent for A* to E, 75 per cent pass rate for A*-C and 47 per cent for A*-B.

“We are thrilled with these results and they are a testament to the hard work and efforts of the students and staff here at the school,” said headteacher Jed Whelan.

“This is a significant improvement on previous years results and illustrates the strong work partnerships that exist at the school. We are proud of every student who has achieved their potential, whatever the grade they achieved. “However, special mention must go to Aaron Kirkbride who achieved the highest marks of four A* grades in Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Computing. He is the first student for some years to win a place at Cambridge University from Fearnhill School, where he will study Computer Sciences.”

Other top performers included Liam Mayet (A History, A Psychology A Sociology), Shaun Trussell (Biology A*, Chemistry A, Maths A) - who will be reading Medicine at University College London - and Ryan Murphy who achieved the equivalent of three A grades in his Btec Business and Computing courses.

Mr Whelan added: “The students have set a high standard for others to follow and everyone at the school is committed to delivering excellent results. We would also like to thank our primary school colleagues for the efforts they put into ensuring students have the foundations to deliver this success. We often forget the great foundation work done in Key Stages 1 and 2.”
