Results Day Success for Queen Ethelburga's


Students and staff at Queen Ethelburga's College and Faculty are celebrating another successful year today, following the publishing of A Level and BTEC examination results nationally.

Students in the academically focused College achieved 81% A*/A at A level and 97% D*/D in the small number of BTECs taken to enrich the A level programmes (equivalent in university points to A* and A grades at A Level).

The Faculty, which offers a wider range of academic, creative and vocational courses, achieved 64% A*/A at A Level and 64% D*/D in BTECs.

"This is a great achievement across the board and I am sure our students are as delighted with their efforts as we are." said Steven Jandrell, Collegiate Principal.

"Of course, these examination results are only part of this year’s success story. We enjoy excellent results each year for our students, but are proud of the degree to which we inspire and challenge each one of them. We instil in our pupils the Hill Standard – “to be the best that I can with the gifts that I have” - because each child is important, special and gifted in their own way.

"We also place great emphasis on our students growing into resilient, caring, compassionate and confident adults, who develop independence and initiative, and who can take responsibility for their own learning and futures. We provide opportunities for students to take part in a range of wider enrichment and extra-curricular activities to help them to gain skills in leadership, teamwork and collaboration, and decision making.

"Today's results are testament that this approach provides the right environment in which our students can thrive. As young adults going on to the next step in their educational journey, they are our greatest ambassadors."

As seen in national league tables, the A level results for both the College and the Faculty have been in the top 20 schools in the country over last few years.
