A Level Results 2015
Pupils at Oswestry School are celebrating another set of impressive A-level results this year.
James Gale and Jenny Hu have successfully gained their first choices, both Birmingham University, to study medicine. James secured three As in Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics whilst Jenny scored A*AA in Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics. Deputy Head Girl, Laura Kendall, will study Law at Exeter University after obtaining grades of A*AB. Welsh universities are the destination for Head Boy, George Tomley, who has gained a place at Cardiff to study History and Head Girl, Verity Bowen will read Environmental Science at Aberystwyth.
Overseas pupil, Ruining Jiao, from China, achieved four A levels with grades of A*AAA, and will read Accounting at Warwick University. Andriy Yevstratov, secured grades of AAAB and will take up his place at Manchester University to read Mathematics.
Many other pupils have successfully gained a place at their first choice university - with our pupils taking the good advice of our excellent team of tutors on board. There is no one size fits all approach here, with pupils securing places to read a vast range of courses: from accounting to war studies, including economics, engineering, law, mathematics, medicine, and music. Well done to all!
Other notable successes include 50 out of 51 language students at A-level and AS secured grade C or above, whilst 100% of Geography, Politics, Music, Art and Textiles students obtained grade C or above at A-level.
These are pleasing successes upon which we hope to build in the years to come, with six new science laboratories and a computer room opening in September 2015. Also for the Michaelmas term, we will have in place stronger academic management, with new Heads of Science, Languages, English, Art & Technology and Mathematics & Computing. Academic excellence is the focus, but we shall also be maintaining the strength and breadth of activities outside of the classroom - a combination which really does prepare our pupils ‘not for school, but for life’.
