Grey Court Sixth Form has once again torn up the rule book for national trends by reporting its best ever series of A-level results for its 2022 cohort.  Astonishingly, despite having endured three years of COVID related disruption, Year 13 students registered  outcomes higher than those achieved via last year’s Teacher assessed grades.  With students sitting real exams for the first time since 2019, the number of A level A*/A grades increased from 47% in 2021 to a whopping 50% in 2022 and a hugely impressive  81% A*-B was up from last year’s 74.3%. Similarly fantastic outcomes were also achieved across all BTEC courses.  A delighted Head Teacher, Mr Christopher Rhodes, stated that “these results are a testament to the aspirational ethos of a resilient group of students whose ambition has been underpinned by our creative and consistent approach to their education.  Thanks to our extraordinarily talented and dedicated staff, we have kept the school open every day over the last three years, we have innovated virtually, physically and psychologically so that every child, every day has had the tools to realise their considerable potential”. 

Once again there has been a strong performance in medicine with students gaining places on Medical courses at Sheffield and Imperial College. Grey Court has also built on its impressive tradition of successful Oxbridge alumni with Thomas Prestidge leaving to read History at Cambridge. 

BTEC courses once again tabled excellent results with Noah Nissim who gained 2 distinction* grades and an A* in Psychology - gaining a place on a course at Royal Holloway to study Management and Marketing.  Of particular note were the 16 A* grades for the mathematics department, with KS5 lead teacher, Ms Ogun, remarking that, “the mathematics faculty have predicted such an avalanche of grades for the past three years, and we have been desperate to prove that our students can perform at the highest level in exacting exam conditions. I am glad they have proved me right!”

Head of Sixth Form, Ms Jane Higham, thanked all the staff and students for the “support, empathy and kindness” that they had demonstrated towards one another,  throughout their time in the Sixth Form. “These results will undoubtedly allow this lovely cohort of students to start to fulfil their hopes and dreams, but I am glad that this has been against a backdrop of student activism around mental health, diversity and climate change” observed Ms Higham. I will look forward to receiving updates from this group whilst they are on their gap year, in university or when they start their apprenticeships and hope they will come back and visit to inspire the next generation.
