Princethorpe College Celebrates 2021 A-Level Results

In spite of the unprecedented challenges that the last 16 months have presented, Princethorpe College is celebrating an excellent set of A-level results.

Out of a cohort of 104 students who completed their A-levels, BTEC and Extended Project Qualification this year, at the top end 55% of all A-level grades are A* or A and overall 95% of grades are A* to C. Impressively, 39 high-flyers achieved three or more A* or A grades. Special mention must go to Sophie Cheshire, James Gallagher, Charlotte Lister, Lauren Mason, Grace McGrory, Prajeet Prabakaran, Alex Rejali, Carmel Spelman and Daisy Walker who all achieved straight A*s. 

Ed Hester, Headmaster, said: "This year’s A-level results have been arrived at in a very different way to normal. That said we are delighted that the results are a fair reflection of the hard work and achievements of this extremely talented year group.  

He continued, “Our Upper Sixth remained resilient during their time in the Sixth Form which included various periods of lockdown, home learning and self-isolation which for many, was very tough. It has been an extremely demanding time but happily the overwhelming majority have been accepted to study at their university of choice. I would like to thank our dedicated staff who worked with immense professionalism and rigorous attention to detail to get the pupils through their courses and give them an excellent preparation for their various next steps. 

He concluded, "We are proud of our Upper Sixth’s academic achievements but these students all have many other fine qualities: kindness, respect and a strong sense of right and wrong, which will be tremendously important for them as they move on to the next phase of their lives. We congratulate them all on their well-deserved success and wish them all the very best for the future." 

The Upper Sixth will be celebrating their examination results and marking the end of their time at Princethorpe in a fabulous farewell Ball at Coombe Abbey in Coventry tomorrow evening, and we look forward to sharing photos from the event with the Princethorpe Connect community next week.
