Another outstanding A Level results day for Prior Park students

Prior Park College is thrilled to be celebrating another outstanding performance from their A Level students. The College is particularly pleased with A* and A grades, with the best A* results for seven years.

It is the first year of transition from Modular A Levels to Linear A Levels and the College is delighted with both sets of results which are up at every grade boundary.

Prior has seen strong results across the curriculum spectrum however particular mention must go to no fewer than eleven departments including Mathematics, all Sciences, Languages, English Literature, Theology, History and tremendous results too in Art and Design & Technology.

Students have secured places at Oxbridge and Medical Schools with a higher percentage than normal going to Russell Group universities, including three securing places at the London School of Economics.

High achievers include Sam Honey and Ben Lawton, who both secured a full house of four A* grades; earning Sam his place at UCL to read Mechanical Engineering and Ben his place at Durham University to read Natural Sciences. However given their fantastic results, both are considering whether to reapply for Oxbridge. Jonathan Mallet and Max Parry both secured 3 A* grades. Jonathan is taking up a place at Balliol College, University of Oxford to read Medicine and Max has yet to decide where he will go. 

Special congratulations are also extended to Megan Davies who has secured a full tennis scholarship at the University of South Carolina. Megan, trains at the University of Bath, is currently UK Junior Champion in both singles and doubles, and successfully juggled her 3 A Levels with her tennis career. In addition, Lawrence Cotton passed his 3 A Levels whilst training with the GB Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association.

The Headmaster, Mr James Murphy-O’Connor comments “This year has seen another outstanding results day from our students. We are extremely proud of our students and these results are a testament to their hard work and the dedication and inspiration of our teaching staff. It's a joy to be here today and to see so many happy faces.”
