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.
