A2 Results

If we may be permitted to blow our own trumpet...

It's official.  The Department for Education 2015 performance data positions Alexandra Park School at the top of the local league tables.  The attainment, progress and value added data for students studying GCSE, vocational and A-level courses places the school ahead of all but the selective schools in North London.

Exam Results - A-Level

Our A level results are, arguably, the best in the area.  Our A level students have achieved the highest percentage of grades A*-C amongst local providers and the proportion of A*/A and A*-B grades has continued to rise significantly, bucking the wider trend.

We are especially proud that students have achieved such exceptional results in an inclusive Sixth Form which upholds our ‘Success for All’ ethos.  Comparative data shows that APS Sixth Form students’ progress is in the top 10% of all schools nationally i.e. students of all abilities achieve higher grades than they would at 90% of other schools and colleges.  This is a reflection of the excellent guidance and teaching that they receive.

The consistently excellent results at A level enable students to pursue further study at top universities.  Every year our students secure places at Oxford and Cambridge (spread across all subject areas - arts, humanities, law and science).  The majority of our students gain places at top-third universities and most of these are at Russell Group institutions. Art, Economics, Engineering, English, History, Maths, Medicine /related areas, Psychology and Sociology are typically the most popular areas in which our students continue to undergraduate study.

It is important to stress that each option subject has a different mix of students with different ranges of ability.  It is not possible to make direct comparisons between subjects without knowing the profile of each group. National comparison can also be difficult. For example, at Alexandra Park School, over half of our students study the separate sciences, while nationally, only the top 25% of students are entered for these exams.
