A level Results 2016

Great results for first ever A levels at Waldegrave!

We are extremely pleased with the results that students have achieved.  We have a pass rate of 100% with 40% A* or A grade and 75% A*-B, below you can see the breakdown of results. 

Students and staff have worked very hard over the past two years to achieve these fantastic results.  We have five students going to study at Oxford or Cambridge next year in English (3), Computing and Engineering, two students studying Veterinary Sciences and dentistry and other students going to their chosen university across the country or on to advanced level apprenticeships.  We are proud of all of our students for their achievements. 

Particular thanks should go to staff at Waldegrave who have been preparing for and building up the sixth form for over four years.  It is an incredible achievement to reach this level of achievement and a reflection of a great deal of commitment, hard work and great leadership. Thank you to all of the staff who have worked so hard and made this possible and to Governors for their support.
