Peter Harris, Principal of Ewell Castle Senior School commented, “We’ve had some very good A Level results this year with over half of our students achieving their first choice university. Without doubt our star performer is our outgoing Head Boy Danny Archer who has been at Ewell Castle since he was four, and who not only Achieved two A*s and one A at A Level but also found time to be Captain of Football and Captain of Swimming.”
Mr Harris continued “We’re very pleased with the growth of our Sixth Form which has received extra resources and facilities in recent years. Most of our students now choose to stay on at Ewell Castle after their GCSEs, and we’re particularly delighted with the high levels of interest we have received from girls wishing to join us in the Sixth Form to study for their A Levels.” At Ewell Castle School, all aspects of personal development are fostered, and pastoral care and support which is consistently acknowledged to be outstanding (ISI Report 2012) contributes greatly to personal development and achievement of potential.
Ewell Castle School still has a few Sixth Form places left for September 2014, and welcomes prospective students who have achieved a minimum of Grade B at GCSE in their chosen A Level subject to visit and take a tour of the School. Sixth Form Scholarships and Bursaries are available and are in line with School policies.
