THE percentage of students who gained A-levels at Nobel School in Stevenage was up on last year.
Ninety-three of the school's own students took A-levels as well as 30 guest students and 46 per cent of them gained A-B grades compared with 30 per cent last year, 75 per cent of students gained A-C grades compared to 57 per cent last year and 99 per cent of students gained A-E grades compared to 94 per cent last year.
Headteacher Alistair Craig said: "We are delighted with the overall results of our A-level students this year, which show a marked improvement on the previous year, and continue the upward trend in student achievement at Nobel. They include some excellent results at the highest levels, with a significant number of students achieving straight A grades or strong A/B combinations.
"These successes are testament to the considerable hard work and commitment from students, staff and often parents as well, who give support through the pressures of the exam period. We are very proud of this continued tradition of excellence and achievement."
Jonathan Dunbar, Andrew Matthews and Michael Webb, gained four A grades; Daniel Watkins achieved three A grades and Helen Jones, Kirsty Lancaster, Devan Mitchell, Jonathan Moore and Ashley Smith gained two A grades and a B grade.
These results mean that almost all of the students will be going on to further education at their chosen university or college. The range of universities includes Cambridge, Durham, Southampton, Warwick and UCL, with students reading degrees from medicine through to ancient history.
