A-level grades continue to soar!
A-level results at Eastbourne College were up for the third year in a row as pupils achieved a swathe of top grades.
This year, 55 per cent of grades awarded were A* or A, and the overall proportion of A*, A or B grades was a shade under 80 per cent.
Unlike many other schools and Colleges, all Eastbourne College pupils sit gold-standard A-level or Cambridge Pre-U qualifications for all their subjects and this year achieved a pass rate of 100 per cent.
Maths, English, the sciences, the humanities, languages and creative arts continue to be beacons of excellence. Once again, the majority of pupils achieved A-level grades that enabled them to access top courses at the leading universities at home or abroad.
Chloe Cox, from Eastbourne (pictured below) achieved a remarkable five A* A-level grades and will take up her place to read Veterinary Science at Cambridge. In all, 29 pupils achieved straight A*/A grades, including Luke Muschialli, Florence Ji, Joseph Shouksmith and Johnson Oh with A*A*A*A, and James Song and Leila Lopez-Moran with A*A*A*.
Eastbourne College’s sixth form continues to grow in popularity, with over 150 pupils taking A-level exams this year and places for September 2021 (and scholarships) hotly contested.
