Beths Grammar School students celebrate impressive year of A-Level results
Students and staff at Beths Grammar School, located on Hartford Road in Bexley, are celebrating today after receiving their A-Level grades.
This year saw the school’s largest-ever cohort of 424 Year 13 students achieve an excellent set of A Level results, with 26 students obtaining at least two A* grades. Many students are now preparing to head on to the university, apprenticeship or job of their choice.
Overall, 57% of grades were A* to B and 80% were A* to C. These grades are up from the school’s pre-covid results in 2019 - a significant achievement given the disruption to students’ secondary education during the pandemic.
Beths also saw particular success in subjects including Further Maths, Electronics, Religious Education, Mandarin, Physics, Politics and English Literature where the average grades were A to B.
While all students have done well, there are some standout individual achievements. These include:
- Jack, who achieved three A* grades and was the highest performer nationally for OCR in PE. He now looks forward to his football scholarship at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York.
- Romil, who secured three A*s and an A and will now read Economics at Homerton College, Cambridge alongside Jedida who achieved three A*s and will study Medicine at Pembrooke College, Cambridge.
- Michael, who received three A*s and an A grade and has secured his place to study Computer Science at Oriel College, Oxford, Matthew, who achieved two A*s and an A to read Geography at St Edmund Hall, Oxford, and Jake, who received two A*s and an A to read Law at Corpus Christi, Oxford.
Furthermore, four students achieved four A*s at A Level with Luca set to read Chemistry at New College, Oxford; Simeon, who is going to study Aerospace Engineering at Imperial College; Idris, who will study Computer Science at University College London; and Vasanth, who will read Computer Science at Queen Mary, University of London.
Richard Blyghton, Headteacher at Beths Grammar School, said:
“I am incredibly proud of our students as they receive their A Level grades today. It has been a privilege to witness their dedication to their learning and see so many happy faces today as they prepare to take their important next steps.
“We wish all our young people the very best as they head off to top universities, competitive apprenticeships and full-time jobs. A huge thank you to our wonderful team of staff, families and community for supporting our young people to achieve such excellent outcomes.”
