A Level Accomplishments

Despite the unprecedented challenges faced by students this year, Sutton Valence School is delighted to announce another excellent set of A Level results. In 2020, 60% of all grades achieved by our students are A* to B, with a very impressive pass rate of 98%. Nearly one in five of this year’s cohort of students achieved three or more A* and A grades.

Once again, 100% of our students who completed the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) passed, with 80% achieving A* to A grades. Recognised by universities as providing students with essential skills, the EPQ is a self-motivated project that requires detailed planning and independent research and aids students to stand out in the UCAS application process.

Amongst the very good results, there were a number of exceptional performances, most notably Lara Savage with a perfect sweep of four A* grades, comfortably securing her place at Cambridge University to read Veterinary Science. Isabella Dransfield and Isabella Eyers both achieved three A*s and one A grade and will be heading respectively to Newcastle to read Spanish and Philosophy and Edinburgh to read Law.  A further three students, Libby Cavell, Amelia Semmens and Noah Swaine, each achieved two A*s and two A grades. 

“This has been a truly testing time for all, but in particular for those denied the opportunity to really prove their worth in their A level examinations.  We are so pleased that our students on the whole have received good grades that reflect their ability. The most important thing for us, is that these young people can now move on with the next phase of their educational journey and have the chance to truly show what they are capable of achieving”, said Bruce Grindlay, Headmaster. “The COVID years will be a remarkable chapter in the history books, but we are very proud of the resilience and determination shown by our students and staff throughout this difficult period."
