Esher College is pleased to report a 99.3% pass rate at A level (80.9% A* - C grades). Students studying BTEC courses also achieved excellent results. The proportion of students achieving the highest grades is of particular note in a strong set of outcomes.
An impressive 96 students achieved three or more A Levels at A* or A grade, including 15 students who were awarded 3 or 4 A* grades; a remarkable achievement. A full breakdown of results will be available on the Esher College website shortly.
Ben Jureidini, who gained four A* grades in English Literature, Biology, Psychology and Classical Civilisation said, “I'm thrilled with my results! Not only do I have my teachers to thank for my grades but also for motivating me to apply to Oxford in the first place." Ben, who came to Esher from the Hall School and was the former President of The Student Union, is off to St John's College, Oxford to study English.
Esme Amos, who gained a Di* in BTEC Applied Science and two B grades in Physical Education and Psychology said, “I'm really pleased with my results. I am grateful to my BTEC Science teachers for encouraging me to apply for my course as I didn't know that I could apply with a BTEC". Esme, who came to us from Howard of Effingham School, is off to Sheffield Hallam University to study Physiotherapy.
Daniel Abraham, who gained four A* grades in Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths is off to Warwick University to study Maths and Physics. Daniel, who was home schooled, said, “I'm grateful for the experience I have had at Esher College and I'm so happy with my results. Esher was the right choice for me and with help from some great teachers, I'm now looking forward to a new adventure at Warwick University!"
Lois Whitelegg, who gained three A* grades in Chemistry, Biology and Maths is off to Homerton College, Cambridge to study Medicine. Lois, who came to Esher College from Ricards Lodge, said, “It was only when my Biology teacher put me forward for the Satro Scheme and I was given a placement at St George's Hospital, that I realised that I wanted to study medicine. I can't believe I have got my place at Cambridge – I am so excited!
Dan Dean, the College Principal, said, “We are absolutely delighted for our second year students as they celebrate an excellent set of results. It is immensely rewarding to see all the hard work of both students and teachers pay off. The A level pass and high grade rates are particularly pleasing as 2019 marks the first set of entirely reformed A level outcomes. Given that the new qualifications are more rigorous than their predecessors, it reassuring to see that teachers and students have mastered the demands of the new requirements. BTEC results, a mix of reformed and legacy qualifications, are equally impressive. Achievement at this level opens doors for the future and we look forward to hearing about the wide range of pathways our students will now follow. Well done to the 2019 Esher College cohort!"
