2016 Examination Results
Congratulations to the class of 2016 on some excellent results.
Just under half of all grades awarded to our A Level students were the top grades of A* - B, and nearly 1 in every 5 awarded was either an A* or A.
There have been many exceptional performances by Hutton’s outgoing Year 13.
4 students, Elizabeth Ainsworth, Matthew Farrier, Daniel Timmers and David Tipping all achieved 5 A Level passes.
David achieved A* grades in Mathematics, English Literature and General Studies along with A grades in Further Mathematics and History. His outstanding achievements have earned him a place at Christ Church, Oxford University, studying Law and Law Studies in Europe.
Daniel achieved A* grades in Mathematics and General Studies along with A grades in Further Maths, Business Studies and Economics. He is now looking to continue his studies into Mathematics at Warwick University.
Matthew scored the highest possible grades in Mathematics and Chemistry along with B’s in General Studies and Biology and a C in Physics. In addition to this, he also passed his Extended Project Qualification (worth half an A level) with a project on post-operative psychological care.
Elizabeth secured her 5 grades with an A in History and B’s in General Studies, Drama, English Literature and Art.
Special mention must be made of other students too.
Rachel Massey passed 4 A Levels – with an amazing 3 A* grades in Geography, English Literature and General Studies. Her fourth was an A in Biology. She is now looking to spend a year doing voluntary work and hopes to follow a Medical career pathway afterwards.
Charley Bond, Jacob Browne, Gemma Laverty, Hannah Lord and Ben Melling were all successful at achieving the ‘Gold Standard’ of an A* grade in Psychology, Sport/PE, Art, Politics, and Mathematics respectively.
Graham Fox achieved 4 excellent passes with A grades in Mathematics, Law and General Studies and a B in Chemistry.
Two other students also passed the AQA Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) which provides an opportunity for them to exercise their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus on a largely self-directed project and in their own time. Umberto Zerbinati and Jacob Browne achieved A* and, B grades respectively in this qualification, and undertook projects in the development and production of a heart monitor with Smartphone connectivity and a study into Sports stars and their allegiances to particular nationalities.
Our results mean that the vast majority of our students have secured their chosen courses at their preferred universities. Many of them will be embarking on Higher Education at some of the top Universities in the country. Our excellent AS Level results also suggest that good A Level results should be forthcoming next year.
Head teacher Mark Bradshaw commented that "Once again we are delighted with the achievements of our students and there have been some exceptional results. Many students have achieved top grades and are now progressing to university. Students and staff have worked incredibly hard over the past year and we are really proud of our students' results. Our Year 13 students now leave us for the next exciting chapter in their lives and we wish them well. Year 12 students have laid excellent foundations for the coming year and I am sure they will continue to push themselves. I would like to once again thank all of the staff for going the extra mile with the students, and the parents and carers for their continued support.”
