2017 A-Level Results

This year our A-level students have set new records for academic excellence, with 25% of all grades achieved at A*/A.

The proportion of A*-B grades reached an impressive 52% with 82% at A*-C. Our overall A-level pass rate remained at 99.6%.

Headteacher Paul O'Neill said:

"These results are a credit to all of our students' hard work, their families support and the relentless commitment of their teachers to achieve the very best outcomes possible. This year in particular, we are delighted to have exceeded our ambitious targets for the proportion of grades achieved at the highest level. As our recent Ofsted report highlighted, we are determined that pupils should achieve outstanding results and our actions to secure this are driving rapid improvements across the school."

The school's renewed focus on academic excellence has paid dividends across a broad range of A level subjects. Results remained very strong with the majority of subjects achieving a significant increase in the proportion of students achieving the highest grades of A*/A. Some examples were: Chemistry 29%, Computing 25%, Maths 45%, Maths Statistics 33%, Further Maths 38%, Media 25%, Physics 33%, Psychology 36%, Economics 38%, English Literature 50% and French 100%.

Pete Whitehouse, Assistant Headteacher with responsibility for the Sixth Form said:

“I am absolutely delighted with the performance of our students this year. As in previous years, the top performing students have realised their talents by producing some of the best individual results in the country. Across all our students the average grades achieved have increased again for the fifth year running and I am immensely proud."

“These results continue to show that students of all abilities make excellent progress at The Emmbrook, including our vocational students who achieved ‘distinction’ grades on average."

“Any Sixth Form journey is challenging and potentially stressful and I am proud of our track record of preparing each of our very impressive young adults, to take on the next important challenges in their lives"

There was considerable success for our highest achieving students. 38% of all students achieved at least one A grade, with seven students securing three A grades or better:

With the strength of these results we anticipate the vast majority of students will be successfully enrolled onto university courses in September. Our students will be going on to  read a diverse range of subjects, including: Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Sciences, Chemistry, Computer Science, English Literature, Geography, Law, Mathematics,  Mechanical Engineering, Medicine, Modern History and Politics, Pharmacy, and Theoretical Physics. 

At AS-level the students achieved the best results we have ever seen. 19% of results were A grade and 42% were A-B grades. We are particularly pleased with these results as  they demonstrate the successful implementation of new AS courses following A-level reform. 


2015 A-Level and AS Results
The A Level results included a 99.7% pass rate, an increase in the average points score per subject to 214 and an increase in the average points score per student to 757: All well above the national average.   The percentage of results at grades  A*/A rose to  21% and  A*/B was 47%. The vast majority of students planning on going to University will be delighted about the outcome. 
In all, these are a great set of results for the great majority of students and indeed for the school.  
Individual results include:
  • Jonathan Betteridge achieved 4 A* grades (Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths) and will read Chemistry at Oxford.  
  • Ben Hilton achieved 3 A* and an A grade (Chemistry, Maths, Physics and Further Maths) and will read Physics at Bath.
  • Thomas Goodey achieved 3 A* grades (Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths) and will read Maths at Oxford).  
  • Emmy Sivertsen achieved 3A* grades (Biology, Chemistry and Maths) and will read Biological Sciences at Surrey.
  • Jack Bailey, Chelsea Davey, Toby Hodges, Emily Jones and Alex Turner all achieved at least 3 A* or A grades.  
[Note: These are based upon conditional offers of University places which have been met. Individual students have the opportunity to accept other offers if they wish and therefore final destinations may change]
The subject results include Maths and Chemistry, with 50% of the results being A*/A grades.  Similarly, Economics achieved 68% of all grades at A*-B and the English results included 40% A*-B  for English Language & Literature 
In year 12, the results improved upon the excellent results of 2014 with over 38% of all grades being grade A or B.  At this half way point in their A Level programme, these students are very well placed to achieve great things this time next year. Watch this space!
Comment from the Head:
The Emmbrook has over 200 students in the 6th form and I am confident that great majority of our students will be pleased with their achievement.  They show a further rise from the excellent results of 2014 (when the school 6th form was judged to be in the top 15% of schools in England for value added attainment). These results come as we enter a new phase in the life of our school.  The completion of the £2 million English block together with the opening of a new 6th form centre will ensure our 6th form have the cutting edge facilities they deserve during this new academic year.  Later this year we will see the start of the work to build our new Maths block.
