Students at Moreton Hall are celebrating today with a stellar year of A Level results which have confounded press predictions of a downward trend and with A* grades actually increased from last year and double those of 2019.
For a cohort whose GCSE years were dominated by the covid pandemic and whose GCSE results were decided by Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGS), it is especially gratifying to see their first experience of public examinations rewarded with such fantastic results. 75% of students will now be packing their bags for their first choice of university, many of them to the most competitive Russell Group universities
Amongst the many success stories, head girl Tarryn Stanhope’s 4 A*s at A level and an A* EPQ secured her place to study Economics at Durham University. International student, Madina Karimli’s 3 A* have confirmed her Biomedical aspirations. Hannah Andrews who arrived at Moreton Hall in year 1 and Connie Richardson who joined Moreton Hall for her A Levels are both also off to Durham, each with an impressive array of A*, As and EPQ success.
With Moreton Hall’s Next Steps Careers team supporting each student in finding the right course for their individual interests and strengths, the girls are set to study a diverse range of courses including International Relations and Politics, Maths, Chemistry, Nursing, History, English Literature, Archeology, Occupational Therapy and Education.
Remarking on today’s success, Moreton Hall Principal Michael Brewer said:
“These results are a superb reflection of the diligence and determination with which our students and their teachers have approached their A Level studies over the past two years. It would have been easy to be distracted by gloomy media coverage of the dramatic fall in grades expected this year but, with true Moreton spirit, our girls have blazed a confident trail to grades that exceed not only national averages but also improve in several key ways upon the grades received in 2019. The whole school community is delighted by, and proud of, the successes of the class of 2023, and we cannot wait to see what they achieve as they go out into the world.”
