Bethany celebrates record A*/A grades

Posted In Academic

Bethany School pupils continue to celebrate significant successes at A level.  In March, it was announced that the School was in the top 2% of Schools nationally for A level progress and today this year’s A level cohort have achieved a record number of A*/A grades across the 27 subjects and courses that we offer to our Sixth Formers.

In March this year, Bethany School was one of the very few senior schools in the country to have been awarded the National Wellbeing Award for Schools.  This recognised the School’s outstanding approach to our pupils’ wellbeing where we place the pupil at the centre of all decisions.  The individual support and guidance given to each pupil has ensured that they have coped impressively well with the increased pressures of the reformed A levels which is reflected in this year’s excellent results.

Those Year 13 pupils who have achieved notable successes and are going onto top universities include:

Academic Scholar, Lewis Baker (Benenden) achieved A*, A*, A*, A, A and will read Economics at the University of Exeter.

Head of School, Maria Dougan (London) achieved the grades to read Medicine and Surgery at Lancaster University, as did Suyeon Woo (Surrey) who will now read Biomedical Science at University College London.

Deputy Head of School, Georgina Hill (Marden) achieved A*, A*, A* and will study Accounting and Business at Reading University.

Deputy Head of School, Kenneth Ling (Bexley) achieved A*, A, A, B, B and will read Aeronautical Engineering at Loughborough University.

Connie Clar (London and Brussels) achieved A, A, A and is taking a gap year prior to studying Video Game Art at a university in Canada.

1st XV Rugby player, Michael Roshier (Hildenborough) achieved A, A, A and is also taking a gap year before applying to university to study Engineering.

Further highlighting Bethany’s outstanding provision for the creative and performing arts, Warwick Crewe-Brown (Tonbridge) achieved A*, A*, B and will study Visual Effects in Bournemouth.

Headmaster, Francie Healy, said, “Knowing each pupil as well as I do, I am thrilled for every one of our Year 13 pupils receiving such great results today.  Underneath every headline are many individual success stories which sum up our ethos as a School:  all the staff here put the wellbeing of each pupil first. It is entirely rewarding to witness the young people who we have come to know so well achieve their potential and, very often, go beyond it.  Much gratitude is due to the brilliant staff and supportive parents who have helped our pupils achieve these successes. It has been a superb team effort”.
