We know it has been a really unsettling few months for students and we are pleased to be able to reassure you that A Level results at St. Olave’s Grammar School are once again outstanding, and slightly higher than previous years. 95.3% of the grades secured by Olavians were A* to B with over a third of all qualifications being at A*, and three quarters being at A*/A. There are some exceptional individual results, which include 40 students securing 3 A* grades or more.
Andrew Rees, Headteacher, said: “The overall results for St. Olave’s are excellent. These are a fitting tribute to everyone’s hard work and dedication over the course of the last two years. Students have experienced a unique disruption to their academic studies. I hope the grades they have been awarded by the exam boards will enable them to move on in their lives with a sense of pride in their hard work and accomplishments, whatever they choose to do. It should also be noted that these results have been achieved by students who have focussed on more than just their examinations during their time in the sixth form. They have been active on the sports field, performing in musical concerts and drama productions, supporting the local community, mentoring younger students, leading clubs and societies, writing journals, entering national and international competitions and engaging in Duke of Edinburgh. We wish them all the very best in the next stage of their education.”
