A Levels: Best ever results for Oriel High School


Oriel High School is celebrating their best ever GCE A Level achievement of its Year 13 students.

The overall pass rate was 99 per cent, 52 per cent of those being A*, A, or B grades.

Eighteen per cent of all grades were recorded at A* - a record for Oriel Sixth Form.

Forty-one per cent of all BTECs were graded at Distinction level.

Molly Edwards, 18, from Maidenbower, achieved three A* grades - in History, English, and Media Studies.

She found out this morning from the UCAS website that she had got into the University of Bristol to study English Literature.

“I ran straight downstairs to tell my mum I’d got in,” she said. “I was quite surprised.

“She was really happy, and asked if I’d definitely got in.”

Molly then headed into school to find out her actual grades, as the UCAS website does not carry that information.

Headteacher Philip Stack said: “We are delighted for our Year 13 students.

“Their results are a credit to them, their families and the staff of Oriel High School, and I wish our former Year 13 students every success for the future.”

He added: “There were very many outstanding personal performances by our students.”
