Evie Faber, Hattie Harries-Jones, Lucy Hope, Charles Lappin and Charlie Watson all achieved 37 points. Hattie will be attending Durham to study Business and Management; Evie is going to Edinburgh to study English and Philosophy; and Charles Lappin will study Philosophy at Bristol.

The Warden, Stephen Jones, said, ‘With more than half our Upper Sixth taking the IB this year, this is our biggest cohort ever. A point score of 37 or above equates to a string of A* and A grades at A Level and we are delighted to see so many pupils achieve such high marks. Beyond these stellar results, countless more pupils worked extremely hard and were rewarded with the results they need to attend top universities in the UK and overseas.

Across IB and A Level, the range of university courses applied for is astonishing, from Anthropology and Sustainable Development, to Aerospace Engineering and Computer Science. The most popular subjects this year are Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Biology/Biomedical Sciences, History and Law. Courses in Fine Art, English, Physics and History of Art are also popular.

At Higher Level, 55% of all grades were at Levels 7/6, and 87% were Levels 7-5.

Please note that the above is based on the latest information available – re-marks may be applied and university choices are subject to change. Please let the Communications team know of any updates at vanderheident@stedwardsoxford.org.
