PRINCETHORPE College is celebrating its best ever A-level results today (Thursday).

Out of a cohort of 87 upper sixth formers at Princethorpe, the overwhelming majority have got into the universities of their choice and over 25 percent of the grades are at A* or A

Top performers include Megan O’Gorman with four A*s and an A, outgoing Head Girl, Ellie Eaton, with three A*s and Jack Collins also with three A*s.

Headmaster, Ed Hester, said that he was delighted with the results and particularly pleased that pupils have achieved more grades at A* and A than ever before.

He said: “These results are the best ever in the College’s history, with 65% of all grades at B or better. Whilst we are of course delighted with their academic achievements, these pupils have many other fine qualities: kindness, respect and a strong sense of right and wrong which will be as important for them - if not more - as they move on to the next phase of their education. This is a year group which has worked exceptionally hard and I am delighted pupils have been rewarded for their outstanding efforts.”

Summary results:
