This year saw the return to the traditional examinations following the disruption of the pandemic. Previously, the pandemic presented a challenge for many students who had not experienced a formal examination setting. Today's results fully reflect the focus and outstanding positivity of this particular group of A Level and BTEC students.

Amazing Results From Both Senior Schools

QE has two senior schools on its modern, well-equipped campus. The boarding school in York offers a high level of personalised care and guidance for all students. Moreover, each school has an innovative curriculum model to suit each individual.

Students in QE Faculty achieved 86% A*-B grades at A Level and 96% per cent A*-B grades in QE College. The percentage of BTEC Distinction* and Distinction grades in QE Faculty was 81%.

This year has seen students aim high with a wide range of first-choice university places. For example, Cambridge, Imperial College London, the London School of Economics, Durham, King’s College London, University College London, and Bath, amongst other excellent UK and worldwide universities.

Principal of the Collegiate, Daniel Machin, said:

"We are very proud of every single one of our Year 13 students. I wish each of them well as they continue their educational journey and move on from QE. The fantastic results they have received today will set them up for exceptional futures. However, if the last two years have taught us anything, it is the importance we should place on factors which our students display in abundance. Those of compassion, humility, kindness, selflessness, resilience, generosity, and courage.

Our students’ determination to develop all of these skills, which are crucial for future life, ensures they continue to achieve the highest possible standards in all that they do. As a result, our staff feel privileged to support them on their individual journeys. We are delighted to be able to celebrate such a fantastic set of results for 2022 at QE and share in our students' success."
