Moreton Hall is celebrating another stellar set of results, cementing its position as the top non-selective school in the UK.
Students worthy of individual mention include Georgina Lang, whose four A*s enable her to take up her place at Oxford to read Computer Science and Philosophy.
Zahra Deji-Abiola moves onto Imperial College to read Chemical Engineering with three A*s and one A and Jasmine Singh fulfils a lifetime ambition to study medicine at King’s College, London with three A*s.
Jonathan Forster, Principal of Moreton Hall paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of students and staff.
‘With a third of students achieving straight A*s and As in each of their subjects, and over 90% securing their first choice university there is much to celebrate.
However, Moreton is not an exam factory and it is important to note that some of our most successful students have made an enormous contribution to the wider life of the school. For example Lily Mainwaring, who takes up a place at Cambridge to read Medicine, combined her studies with captaining her country at Lacrosse.’
‘Moreton has never rested on its laurels and continues to innovate and develop to ensure that we can inspire the next generation of students and prepare them for the wider world’.
‘Our investment in Science and more specifically, our Medical Science faculty is clearly paying dividends and as work begins on the Holroyd Community Theatre, it is a clear statement of our intent to the principle of an all-round education and our role as a regional hub for learning and the Arts.’
