Shrewsbury School celebrates outstanding A level results

Shrewsbury School is celebrating another outstanding year for A Level and Pre-U results, with 83% of the exams awarded the top A*, A or B grades.

62 pupils gained an A* or A in all their subjects and 16 students gained at least 3 A* grades.

In addition, 12 pupils at Shrewsbury School with offers from Oxford or Cambridge Universities achieved the required grades to meet their offers and will be taking up their places later this year.

The School’s AS results from the Lower Sixth pupils were even higher than last year’s record-breaking figures, with 73% of grades achieved at A or B grades.  43 students gained A grades in all their subjects and over 80 gained nothing less than a B.

The Headmaster, Mark Turner, was thrilled with his students’ success. “In a year when the national picture shows a dip in A level results, I am particularly proud that our excellent results at Shrewsbury buck that trend. They bear testimony to the hard work of the students and of their teachers, and I offer them all my warmest congratulations.”
