Pupils at St Peter’s School, York, have achieved a record 25% A* pass rate in the 2012 A-level results.
The number of exams passed at the top grade has increased from 23% twelve months ago. A total of nine pupils at St Peter’s achieved three or four A* grades.
In addition, 87% of all A-levels at St Peter’s were once again passed at A* - B, equalling the school’s previous best performances in 2009 and 2011.
Leo Winkley, Head Master of St Peter’s School, said:
“Good exam results only tell part of the story of education but they do open doors. I am delighted for the pupils who have worked so hard, responding to the challenges our teachers have set them. They have been a terrific year group to work with and we are proud of the young adults they have become, as well as their hard-won academic success. We all wish them every happiness for the future”.
Two pupils leaving St Peter’s this summer will enter Harvard and UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) in the autumn, and seven will progress to Oxbridge.
St Peter’s School, founded in 627AD, is one of the oldest schools in the world, and one of the UK’s leading co-educational boarding schools.
