Fitzharrys A Level – a record year with smiles all round

Fitzharrys students are celebrating another year of great results at A Level, with 50% of grades at A*-B. We are delighted about the success of students based at and taught at Fitzharrys and in the Abingdon Consortium for education. It is wonderful to see the students who achieved such great GCSE results go on to do so well in their A Levels. Their success is richly deserved after all the hard work from students and teachers. Everyone involved can be really proud.

Abingdon Consortium for Education A Level Press Release

The Abingdon Consortium for Education is celebrating another outstanding set of results, with 26% of grades being awarded A/A* grade and 20 students achieving all A/A* grades. Sarah Brinkley, Chair of the ACFE and Headteacher of John Mason School, is thrilled with the results, ‘This is an exceptional achievement for our young people who have shown real grit and commitment to their studies. The high number of A and A* grades is a superb reflection of the work of the three schools in driving up standards for the families of Abingdon and the surrounding villages. We are a truly comprehensive Sixth Form and are especially proud of the phenomenal progress made by our students who have exceeded their targets at all levels and secured their path into higher education, apprenticeships or employment. These achievements are significant and life changing.’

The Abingdon Consortium for Education is made up of Fitzharrys, Larkmead and John Mason Schools, as well as Abingdon and Witney College.

Jonathan Dennett, Headteacher of Fitzharrys School was delighted about the success of Abingdon students, “It is wonderful to see the students who achieved such great GCSE results go on to do so well in their A Levels.
