Congratulations to A level students

Another year of brilliant outcomes for out hardworking 6th form students

Very many congratulations to the students and teachers at the Minster School for their achievements in the A Level exams, the results of which are published today.  More than 70% of students achieved at least one grade A*,A or B with 2/3 of all students in year 13 achieving at least 3 grade C or better.  This compares very favourably with the outcomes for the school in recent years and maintains our excellent record in supporting young people to leave us with bright futures in store.

More than 20 students in the year group achieved a clean sweep of A and A* grades with many securing their University places, including at Oxbridge.

Some individual successes:

Archie Rayner achieved A*s in all his subjects. He is looking forward to studying maths at Bristol in 2018 but in the meantime will continue focusing on his athletics. Archie is a very successful middle distance runner.

Gemma Lannon achieved full marks in her maths A level and achieved 4 A* grades overall. She will be going to Bath University to study Natural Sciences and will feature in an ongoing strand on BBC Radio Nottingham, following her journey from A level results to starting Uni.

Isaac Savage joined Minster School in the 6th form and says it was the best decision he could have made.  He has thrown himself into the life of the school and has been central to many of the school’s musical and theatrical pursuits.  Isaac achieved straight A grades and is very grateful for the additional opportunities in therms of performance afforded by the school.  He will be studying musical theatre at the Royal Scottish Conservatoire.

Alastair Flynn, Jessica Tomlinson and Richard Dewsnap are all going to study at Oxford or Cambridge having achieved outstanding results.

Mr Parris, Head Teacher said : “A Level examination results are a culmination of many years of effort from our diligent students, supported by teachers and families.  At Minster School we aim to “succeed together” and the excellent results achieved are a testament to this. My personal congratulations to all A level students and very best wishes for a successful future.”
