A-Level students from The Royal School achieve their first-choice universities by shining in the most rigorous, facilitating subjects, seen to be of greatest value to universities and major employers.   Thirty one percent of A Level grades attained are at A*/A/B with particularly excellent results in a number of subjects. 67% of our students in German attained A*- A, while 22% in Business Studies attained A*-A.  Pupils studying Computing performed well with 17% attaining A*/A grades and in Geography 60% attaining A*/B grades.  As a non-selective school, we are very proud of our students and their results.

Worth mentioning are some of our star students.  Davids Savruckis will be studying Computer Science at Manchester as a result of his A’s in computing, maths and physics and A* in Russian.  Safa Mahboob achieved three A’s in biology, chemistry and maths and will be pursuing medicine.  Weronika Witos achieved a very impressive set of A Level results with two A’s in biology and chemistry, and a B in maths and

In these times of high competition for the best university places, it is pleasing to note the great success that The Royal students have in securing their first-choice places for competitive courses such as medicine, law, economics and the sciences.  Even more impressive, however, is the fact that that their achievements are in the most rigorous academic subjects that the universities demand.

“This is excellent news for the pupils, particularly at the highest end. We are extremely proud of our students, who have together with a talented and committed staff achieved excellent examination results and leave us as truly well-rounded individuals.  At The Royal our focus continues to be on the development of the whole person as all pupils engage in a range of enrichment activities as part of life in the Sixth Form, take significant leadership roles and develop teamwork skills which will take them beyond outcomes in examinations into a productive and successful career in their chosen discipline.” said Principal Mr Mark Heywood.
