A-level success at Walton Girls’ in Grantham sees first Oxbridge place secured
Walton Girls’ High School and Sixth Form celebrate a successful day as top A level grades increase for pupils.
With a pass rate of 94 per cent at AS and a 100 per cent pass rate at A2 for at least two A levels, a large number of students scored more highly than their predicted grades, in both examined and vocational subjects.
It was also the first year for the school in which someone secured a place at an Oxbridge University.
Gaining three A grades in History, Biology and Religious Studies, Eloise Sinclair will head to Cambridge University in September to study history.
Coming in a year where intake of pupils has increased by 50 per cent, Head teacher Caroline Saxelby spoke of her delight with the results, saying: “This is my first Sixth Form results day at Walton and I couldn’t be more proud of our students.”
