Congratulations to all Embley students on their A Level results and the best set of results for the school in years: 100% pass rate and 42% of all entries this year were A*-B. Nearly half of all students are going on to study at Russell Group universities, the greatest number in the school’s history.
In a number of A Level subjects, 100% of students achieved A*- B. These include A Level Art, Craft & Design and Modern Foreign Languages, which bucks the national trend in grades for language subjects. There was continued 100% A*- A success with students taking the Extended Project Qualification, underpinning the school’s commitment to research, intellectual enquiry and authentic learning.
There are many outstanding individual performances. For example:
- Rebecca achieved A*AA and A* in her Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) will go on to read Biochemistry at the University of Birmingham. Rebecca’s EPQ on the diet of the Maasai tribe was highly commended by The Peter Watson International Scholarship (a national award organised by the University of Cambridge and the National Institutes of Health).
- Embley’s Head of Sailing, Prefect and Head of Chichester House, Hattie, attained A*AB and has secured a place at the University of Southampton to read Ship Science/ Advanced Materials.
- Ursula, who accomplished AAB and A in her EPQ, will read Architecture at Oxford Brookes University. As a school that is dedicated to student leadership and actively encourages student participation to help with readiness for work, Ursula contributed meaningfully to the architectural and feasibility studies of school renovation projects during her time in the Sixth Form.
Headmaster, Cliff Canning, said: “I’m exceptionally proud of all our students, each and every one of whom has achieved an immense milestone. We look forward to continuing to build on these excellent standards. Central to my vision for our school is for all our students to develop into competent, confident and compassionate young adults. I know that many of our Year 13 students will leave us and go on to affect positive change in their chosen vocations and communities, and I look forward to staying in touch with them and hearing about their achievements in the years to come,” added Cliff Canning.
We’ll be holding a Sixth Form Open Evening on Wednesday 26th September (4:30pm – 7:30pm). Click here to find out more.
