A level success
Once again, Eastbourne College girls and boys are celebrating a set of excellent A level results.
Outstanding individual performances came from Tom Alston with four A* grades; Katya Goodwin with three A* and one A grade; Isabella Ripley with three A*; and Alex Garcia Whittam, Hugo McNally, Jane Mullaney, Millie Ngai Lenoir, Charles Pendry, Martha Piper and Grace Porter each achieved two A* grades and one A grade.
James Edwards, Andrei Ellis, Ben Hughes, Andrew Lasita, Mario Pulze, Aidan Tam, and Katherine Williams all attained one A* and two A grades and a further 37 pupils gained three A levels with at least two A* or A grades. 100% of candidates applying to Oxford or Cambridge universities secured their places.
The Eastbourne College headline figures are superb with almost 40% of the grades awarded at A* or A. Strong performances were delivered across the academic departments.
Commenting on these achievements, Headmaster Tom Lawson said: ‘We are delighted that Eastbourne College pupils consistently achieve results of which they and their families can be very proud. The College serves to bring the very best out of each individual, ensuring that every young woman or young man successfully responds to our realistic, high expectations of them.
This is the first cohort of pupils under the new examination system and we are extremely pleased with how this year’s sixth form pupils have risen to the challenge of their A levels. We congratulate those who have done so very well. These results are a tribute to the hard work of the pupils and teaching staff of Eastbourne College. We celebrate their outstanding individual and collective success both in and beyond the classroom.’
