Exam Results 2022

A Level Results 2022

It has been another record breaking year for A Level results at Waldegrave School and staff and students are delighted.  Our students have secured outstanding results with our highest ever number of A* grades, as well as more students than ever securing places at Oxford and Cambridge, and veterinary and medicine. 

Following three years of covid 19 disruption to learning our students have achieved wonderful success in their first ever set of external exams despite the challenges they and their families have faced.  

Ms Tongue, Headteacher, said  “We could not be more proud of each and everyone of our students. This cohort did not sit their GCSE exams in Y11 due to the first lockdown and we understand that this left many feeling uncertain and insecure about this summer’s exams.”

“The results that the students have achieved today demonstrate both their academic ability and their resilience,” Ms Tongue continued. “ I would like to thank the teachers and staff at the school for their expertise and commitment to the students especially in the current context. We are grateful that our parents and carers have also been unstinting in their support and ambition for the students. Students were very well prepared and are now ready for their next steps, whether that be in Higher Education or employment.” 

Waldegrave students have achieved A Level results that they should be exceptionally proud of with almost one quarter of our grades at an A* [24% at A*, 53% at A*/A and 80% at A*-B]

“Waldegrave students are always encouraged to pursue a wide variety of destinations to support their individual aspiration” said Jack Bannister, Head of Sixth Form. “This year subjects have included Product Design for Stage and Screen, Fashion Design, Marine Biology, Film Production, Neuroscience, Nursing, Finance & Management, Bioprocessing of New Medicine, Sports Business Management and American & Canadian Studies.”

We would like to congratulate all our students on their achievements and share with you the names of some of those who have secured places on the most competitive of courses: 

Oxford - Tomi A, Emily BD, Ella C, Silvia D-S, Arden E-E, Amalia S,  Lili S;

Cambridge - Poppy D; Florence B

Medicine  - Milly E at Bristol; 

Medicine & Surgery -Flora W at Newcastle;

Veterinary Medicine & Science - Amelie E at Surrey;

GCSE Results 2022

Waldegrave students have once again risen to the challenge and achieved great success in their GCSEs this year. 90% of students achieved 5 GCSEs, including English and Maths, at grade 4 or above, with 54% of all grades at grade 7 or above. 

Headteacher Ms Tongue said: “This tremendous achievement after the disruption Covid caused students nationally at the start of their GCSE courses. The results are testament to their hard work and determination, alongside the unwavering support of our dedicated staff who ensured students could continue to learn.”

“We are incredibly proud of the academic excellence achieved across the board. Nearly a quarter (23%) of students achieved grades 7-9 in all their GCSEs and 65% of students achieved at least one grade 9.”  

We would like to wish all our Y11 students success in the next stage of their education and we are proud that we have supported them to achieve their goals and aspirations.
