We are celebrating the hard work of our Year 13 students today as they receive their A level results. Our students have shown outstanding levels of resilience, dedication and positivity in such a challenging year and we are proud of every single one of them and wish them all the very best in wherever their next steps take them.

Approximately 75% of students at George Abbot will now take up places at university, with Cassia Taylor and Perry Lewis going to study Engineering at Cambridge and Alfie Jones also studying Maths at Cambridge.

We also have students going onto some amazing degree apprenticeship opportunities. Andrew Lewin, having achieved all A* grades, will take a place at the Dyson Institute, a hugely competitive programme where he will work alongside the Dyson Technology Global Engineering team.

Students also achieved some impressive outcomes in the vocational area. Special recognition goes to Harvey Middleton and Tate Hawkins who both achieved a Distinction* in Sport and in Applied Science and Abi Jasiendra who achieved a Distinction* in IT and Business.

32 George Abbot students did remarkably well, securing A*’s and A grades in all their subjects. 12 of these students; Brandon Acres, Hannah Kingerlee, Andrew Lewin, Perry Lewis, James Morgan, Zoe Skipper Reed, Cassia Taylor, Pippa Thorne, James Taylor and Sophie Turner achieved 4 or more A* grades.

Kate Carriett, Headteacher at George Abbot School, said: 

“Today, our Year 13 students celebrate much deserved success. They have navigated all that the last 18 months has thrown at them with resilience and determination. They go onto the next stage of their journey knowing that hard work, consistent effort, strength of character and pure grit will stand them in good stead for bright futures.”

Tom Robinson, Director of Sixth Form at George Abbot School, said:

“I have been blown away by the determination, courage and positivity that our Year 13 students have displayed during such a challenging Sixth Form journey. I am so proud of every one of them, regardless of the grades they have achieved, they have all accomplished a huge amount. As a comprehensive Sixth Form one of our key aims, in addition to academic achievement, is to prepare students for the next stage of their lives. We pride ourselves on the development of the whole student. This year group have developed into an amazing collection of young people who I know will gain real strength from this experience to go on and achieve fantastic things in the future.”
