At Fitzharrys, we are committed to helping every student achieve their potential, whether that is all 7, 8 and 9 grades or 8 or more GCSE passes. We celebrate each student’s success, and there is a lot to celebrate this year at Fitzharrys. We expect a strong Progress 8 performance as many students have also exceeded expectations.

Congratulations to all our students who have done so well. Our motto is ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’, and this success across our school has really fuelled the feel-good factor running through Fitzharrys.

A Level Results 2018

Students in the Abingdon Consortium for Education (ACfE) equalled last year’s record A Level exam results. The percentage of students across Fitzharrys, John Mason and Larkmead schools achieving at least 3 A* or A grades has improved again on last year’s record, and is once more above the national average. The last four years of A*-B grades also puts ACfE above the national average.

This year’s ACfE A Level results compare very favourably with schools locally and across Oxfordshire, resounding recognition of the high quality of state education in Abingdon. It was great to see so many smiling faces across the town as students secured places at University, an apprenticeship or a job. It’s also been a delight to hear about all the students from Abingdon who have completed their degrees and are moving on to the next stage in their future.

Students based at Fitzharrys performed especially well, taking a wide range of courses both at Fitzharrys and in the wider Consortium. The following results were achieved by students taught at Fitzharrys in 2017:
