23rd August 2012
It was another outstanding year for results at A Level. For the first time ever the pass rate was 100%, 82% of the entries were graded B or better and 22% were awarded an A* grade. This was the highest A* percentage achieved by a Buckinghamshire Grammar School. Harrison Gould and Dominic Aits achieved a remarkable five A* grades and six other students were awarded A*s in all their entries.
At GCSE, 92% of the entries were awarded A*, A or B grades and 83% of the students achieved five or more A* to A grades. In total, forty nine students achieved a clean sweep of A and/or A* grades in all their subjects and eight very happy boys are celebrating each having been awarded thirteen A* grades. For the first time, the school entered candidates for iGCSE exams. This year in History only, but from next year, Challoner’s boys will be taking iGCSE Geography, Biology, Physics and Chemistry. The results in History were outstanding with 91% of boys achieving an A* or A grade. This is particularly good news and confirms that the more traditional style of the iGCSE exam is well suited to our students.
The results are testament to the hard work of our students, and staff, who should all be very proud.
