Outstanding A- Level Achievements

August 18th, 2016

Students at Old Swinford Hospital have once again achieved impressive results in their A Level examinations.  The 100% pass rate across 23 subjects means that a vast majority of students have secured their first choice of university.

Headmaster, Paul Kilbride commented:

‘Our students are to be congratulated on these impressive results.  Their grades reflect the benefits of a balanced education where the performing arts, sport, outward bounds and prefecting are pursued alongside academic study.  It really is to their credit, and that of their teachers, that they are going off to university or the workplace as rounded, confident and capable young people.’

A large number of OSH students have done particularly well including Budd Crooks from Worcester, who gained straight A*s, and Nat Slater from Kingswinford, with one A* and two A grades.  Both students will continue their education at the University of Bath, studying Natural Sciences.

Stourbridge boys Oliver Mann who achieved straight A’s and Cameron Harrison who achieved A*AB are to study in London, at the LSE and UCL.

Arthur Heung from Penn who obtained top grades in Maths and the sciences will also move to London in the autumn to study Material Science at Imperial College.

The humanities are represented by candidates who each took four A Levels: Rob Hipwood (AABB) and Izzy Detheridge (AABB), from Stourbridge, will both be accepting places at the University of Birmingham, Rob to read History and Izzy English.  Louise Potter from Kingswinford achieved A*AA and will take a gap year before applying to read medicine at university.
