Another record year for A-level and BTEC examination results at Ewell Castle School
Ewell Castle is delighted to announce excellent results for our Sixth Formers, and we send our heartiest congratulations to all our students and families, as well as our wonderful staff, on these achievements.
35% of all grades were A*- A which is our highest record for A-level and BTEC public examination results. 56% of all grades were A* - B, 79% A* - C, with a 100% pass rate. BTEC results were 83% Distinction Star, all of which means that students achieved an average of 118 UCAS points each.
Nicholas Mason-Apps is our top performing A-level student this year, achieving A*A*A*A*, and will be reading Computer Science at the University of Warwick.
In addition, we are delighted to share the following exceptional results:
· Riona Syed (Head Girl) and Harry Smale both achieved A*A*A*A. Riona will be reading Economics and Management at the University of Bristol and Harry will be reading Economics with Industrial Experience at the University of Exeter.
· Alexander Cridland achieved A*A*AA and will be studying Mathematics and Physics at the University of Warwick.
· Jad Al-Shakarchy achieved A*A*A and is heading for a place at a top conservatoire to study Music.
· Alexandra McDonald (a very busy tennis scholar) achieved A*AA and will be going on to study Economics at the University of Bristol.
· Ruairi O’Rourke achieved A*AAB and will be reading Computer Science with an Industrial Year at the University of Birmingham.
We would also like to celebrate with Ben Callaghan (Head Boy) who has accepted a very prestigious Higher-Level Apprenticeship to study Engineering with British Airways and Robin McAlpine (one of our top performing tennis scholars) who has now started at Menlo College, California USA, Division 1 on a Tennis Scholarship.
Mindful that this cohort’s GCSE examinations were disrupted by COVID-19 two years ago, our Co-Heads of Sixth Form, Mr Getty and Mrs McManus are delighted: “the students and staff are thrilled with these excellent results, which reflect the high academic standards of the Sixth Form provision at Ewell Castle, and its culture of lifelong resilience. With careful and skilful guidance for each individual student, not a single one was placed in Clearing.”
Principal Silas Edmonds commented: “I am proud of our young people who have worked so diligently under the expert direction of our talented and dedicated staff. They fully deserve these wonderful A-level and BTEC results, the highest post-16 public examination results in the School’s history. In a year when the national trend for A-level grades has taken a downturn, Ewell Castle students have risen to the challenge and shown their quality. Our 2023 Ewellians all now go on confidently to prestigious universities, colleges, conservatoires and Higher Apprenticeships, fully prepared for whatever challenges they will face.”
