Year 13 A Level Results – August 2017
HUTTON STUDENTS MAINTAIN TOP CLASS TRADITION
Hutton C of E Grammar School is pleased to announce another excellent set of A Level examination results – maintaining our long standing tradition of examination success.
Over 40% of all A2 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. Once again we have students who have earned places at Oxford University and many others who have been accepted for their chosen pathways at some of the best Universities in the country. Our AS Level results also suggest that good A Level results should be forthcoming next year.
Angus Brown and Joe Winter are our 2 Oxford – bound students. Angus achieved A* grades in English Literature, History and Politics with an A in General Studies and will be reading History and Politics. He also gained an A* in his EPQ qualification which provides an opportunity for students to exercise their abilities beyond the A-level syllabus on a largely self-directed project and in their own time. Angus undertook his project on the future of sovereign states. Joe – the star of many Hutton productions over the years including Joseph and Les Miserables - gained an A* in History and A grades in Mathematics, Politics and General Studies. He will be studying Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford.
Tom Hughes achieved a total of 5 A Level passes at A*/A with his ‘gold standard’ grades in Chemistry and Mathematics. He also achieved an A grade in his EPQ on thermo-electricity. He is off to Lancaster to study Mechanical Engineering
Adam Brown achieved a total of 4 A Level passes at A*/A with his ‘gold standard’ grades in English Literature and General Studies. He will be going to Warwick to study Politics.
Georgina Newcombe scored top grades in English Literature, Psychology and General Studies, with A grades in History. She leaves us to study Liberal Arts at Durham University.
Special mention must be made of other students too:
Rachel McAngus achieved A* grades in English Literature and History and is off to Manchester to study Law.
Michael Morgan is off to study Computer Science having gained A grades in Computing, Law and Mathematics with an A* in his EPQ researching the future of mechanical minds.
Monty Taylor-Proctor earned an A* in Politics with A grades in General Studies and History. He is going to Manchester to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
Rachel Massey returned to Hutton and studied Chemistry A-Level in 1 year. She achieved an A grade and is now going to King’s College, London to study Medicine.
Head teacher Mark Bradshaw commented: ‘The school has a proud tradition of academic excellence which we continue to maintain; once again we are delighted with the accomplishments of our students. There have been some exceptional results with many achieving top grades and successfully progressing to the next stages of their careers, be that at prestigious Universities or the world of work. Students and staff have worked incredibly hard over the last twelve months, supported as always by dedicated parents and carers, and we are very proud of all they have achieved. Our Year 12 students have also laid excellent foundations for the coming year and I am sure they will continue to push themselves in trying to emulate or surpass those who have just left.
I would like, once again, to thank the staff for continually going the extra mile for the students, parents and carers for their continued support and all of our Year 13 students for always giving of their best; their hard work and dedication has clearly paid dividends.’
