We are immensely proud of all our pupils for everything they achieve and for the journeys they go through. The value of an education should not be summed up in the results of a single exam, but instead are in the person our pupils become and the difference they make to the world.
Students at Reed’s received an excellent set of results in their A Level examinations, making a record increase in grades from their AS Level positions. Grades from A* to B remain at around 75%, the same as previous years, with grades at A*/A at 40% and A*- C grades are at 93%. Twenty five pupils achieved at least 3 A*/A grades. Students gained places at a number of top universities including Imperial, UCL, and Durham, studying a wide range of subjects from Medicine, Aerospace Engineering, Philosophy, Law and Chemical Engineering. This year sees a record of seven students from Reed’s going on to prestigious colleges in the United States, including Princeton, Berkeley, Swarthmore and UCSD (University of California in San Diego).
“In the context of the changes to A Levels nationally, the A Level results at Reed’s this year have exceeded all our predications with an impressive haul of grades across all subject areas. Especially pleasing is the record increase in grades from AS Level positions - testament to the students’ hard work and the support of our excellent staff. The vast majority of Reed’s pupils will be attending their first choice courses and universities and it never ceases to amaze me when I look at the range of different courses that our students will go on to study. This was Reed’s School’s largest ever Sixth Form cohort and I am proud of their academic successes and also the contribution they made to the School in so many different ways. As they move onto the next phase of their lives I am sure that they will also uphold the values of Reed’s and be inspired by the example of the School’s Founder Andrew Reed who founded Reed’s as a school for orphans in 1813. This will be the case particularly for our Foundation pupils, who once again excelled.” Mark Hoskins, Headmaster
Reed’s pupils celebrated record-breaking results at GCSE and IGCSE this year. With an outstanding 43% A* grades and 74% A*/A overall, they exceeded previous records by more than 9%. 60% of the whole year group received at least 7 A* or A grades and 25% achieved straight A*/A grades.
The results for Mathematics were exceptional with 93% of grades at A*/A. Other subjects that achieved results of higher than 80% A*/A grades were Biology, Geography, History, Music, Drama and Latin. English results were also outstanding, continuing the upward trend with A*/A grades of 77% and 75% in Language and Literature respectively.
“We are thrilled with these results; with the recent nationwide increase in grade boundaries and structural changes to questions and papers, it is wonderful to see that the commitment and dedication of the teachers and students here at Reed’s has shone through. These are our best ever GCSE results. I would like to offer my congratulations to both the pupils, who worked with great determination, and our excellent teaching staff who have motivated and inspired them. Our pupils consistently achieve grades far beyond those predicted by national data and this year is no exception.” Mark Hoskins, Headmaster
