A Level Results 2019

One of our largest ever cohorts of Year 13 students are celebrating an excellent set of A Level & BTEC results today. These results continue the impressive performance of HGS Sixth Formers in recent years and provides a springboard for an extremely wide range of higher education, apprenticeship and employment opportunities.

Despite significant national changes to the A level Examination system over recent years, students have achieved excellent results with 56% of all A Level grades being at A*-B. This demonstrates an impressive performance from a Sixth Form which prides itself on its inclusivity and comprehensive intake, with 95% of all exam entries achieved at A*-D. In addition, an impressive 28% of grades were A*-A and 8% at the top grade of A*. The outcomes for our BTEC courses are equally notable with 87% of all results achieving Distinction* to Merit and a 100 per cent pass rate. This shows Harrogate Grammar School’s continued commitment to world class provision and to enhancing opportunities for all. Our students have yet again made progress beyond national levels.

HGS students continue to be accepted into the country’s most competitive universities.

Jessica Dunmore (A*A*A*A*), Jacques Maurice (2A*AB)) and Freya Holden (A*AA) will be studying English, Economics and Geography respectively at Oxford University. In addition, Joe Grant achieved 3A*A, Holly Harrison 3A*A and Ed Malone 3A*. Similarly, impressive with 2 A* grades and 2 A grades were Lottie Leigh, Caitlin Brown, Al Crawley and Abigail Cocks. Esther Fenwick achieved 1 A* grades, 2 A and a Distinction* in music.

Students are heading off to a wide range of destinations. Achele Agada has already commenced her studies at Harvard University and Megan Humphries has received a full scholarship to study the Harp at The Royal Academy of Music. A number of apprenticeships have also been secured, including William Banks at ALDI and Louisa Brabbin at KPMG.

This is just a sample of the range of excellent results and progression routes, which recognise the exceptional hard work of all our students, the support of their families and the dedication of all of our teachers and support staff. Our students and staff have responded superbly to the significant challenges brought about by curriculum reform and it is with great pride that Harrogate Grammar School would like to congratulate all our students and wish them every success in their future endeavours.
