STUDENTS from K
ing’s Ely Sixth Form have been returning to the Porta library to collect their A Level results today (15).
The school’s overall results are even better than those achieved last year – one third (33 per cent) of all A2 results were A*s or As, 62 per cent were A*s to B and a total of 83 per cent were A*-C grades.
Individual achievers, who all received at least three A*s or As, include Leo Banahan, Luke Cave, Sophie Emms, Milly Green, Tommy Chien, Isabelle Elliott, Jamie Huffer, Tony Lesmeister, Axel Rois, Clea Tanner, Nina Wang, James Wege and Charles Lin.
Furthermore, Molly Blacknell scored 100% in her A2 Textiles, Matvey Pogrebinskiy scored 100% in his Russian A Level and Luke Cave scored 100% in his Physics modules. Luke received A*s in Maths, Chemistry, Physics and the Extended Project A Level, and As in Biology and AS Further Maths, thus securing his first choice place to read Medicine at Christ Church, Oxford.
“I am absolutely thrilled with my results,” said Luke. “I am pleased that all of the hard work has paid off as I studied so hard and I don’t think that I could have done anything more.”
He added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed the last ten years at King’s Ely and everyone has been so supportive.”
Year 12 students have also been celebrating their AS results today. High achievers, who all received four As, include Georgia Baynes, Robert Seddon-Greve, Laura Day, George Ryan, Constance Wynn, Sanjiban Mandal and Emma White. Connie Wynn achieved 100% in her AS Textiles and William Hodgson scored 100% in AS Fine Art.
Principal of King’s Ely, Sue Freestone, said: “We are delighted with the achievements of our young people again this year. Their hard work has reaped just reward and I congratulate them, together with the teachers who have supported them through the process. We celebrate the success of those who achieve the highest grades through dint of commitment and passion for their subjects. Equally, I congratulate those who have found the academic demands more of a challenge yet still managed to reach or exceed expectations. We are very proud of them all.”
