It’s been a record-breaking year for Wycliffe’s A level pupils. The non-selective Sixth Form recorded its best-ever result, with 63% of grades at A*-B.
For pupils who had started their careers at Wycliffe Prep School it was even more impressive, with 72% of their grades at these highest levels.
Among those whose individual performances shone out were:
Charlie Leach, who completed four A levels and achieved A*AAA is now off to Bristol University to start an Engineering degree.
Lowri Clarke of Gloucester, and Izzy Naish from Stonehouse both excelled, earning A*AA in Arts and Humanities-based subjects, with each also securing A grades in the Extended Project Qualification. Lowri will take up a place at York to read English whilst Izzy has secured her spot on the same course at Birmingham.
In STEM subjects there was more joy after 2018’s spectacular successes for girls. This year, three former Wycliffe Prep pupils starred, with Iona Lundie of Slimbridge off to Liverpool University to study Veterinary Science after scoring A*AA. Isla Green of Wotton-under-Edge and Dursley’s Maisie Spiers, each with AAA, will take up places at Newcastle and Edinburgh respectively to study Medicine.
Among other eye-catching performances at the highest levels was Oliver Harris, from Upper Cam, whose A*AA, will take him to study Accounting and Finance at Birmingham.
Head of Wycliffe College, Nick Gregory, commented “We are proud of every single member of our Year 13 group for the hard work and dedication that sits behind this set of academic achievements. However, I am especially pleased with, and for, those boys and girls who have been at Wycliffe for many, many years; in some cases, as many as ten or eleven. The most striking statistic to be drawn from today is that of those children who joined Wycliffe at some stage during the Prep School (i.e., before the end of Year 8), almost 3/4 of their A Levels have been passed at grade A*, A or B.”
