Rise in A-Level Achievement for Fourth Consecutive Year at Claremont School
We are thrilled to be able to the share the news of a fourth consecutive rise in A-Level achievement at Claremont School and we couldn’t be prouder of their Class of 2019. At a time when grades have plateaued across the country Claremont has continued to develop impressively, having first opened to students in 2011. With more than a third of results graded at A* or A, there were improvements across the whole range of subjects. Art, Sport, Mathematics and French had particularly strong results, as did the Extended Project Qualification which they have championed since the Sixth Form opened in 2015. A* to B grades rose by 7% while the A* to C grades improved by over 10%. There were a range of impressive outcomes for students, with top performers heading to a wide range of high-profile universities including Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), University College London (UCL), University of Edinburgh, University of Nottingham, University of Pennsylvania, Bournemouth University and University of Southampton.
Ed Dickie, Claremont Head of Senior School said: “We are delighted with the continuing achievement levels demonstrated by students at Claremont. The changes to A-Levels in the past few years has been a real challenge for educators and my team and I are proud that Claremont has shown what is possible with such a diverse group of young people. Our school culture is shaped by a determination to provide opportunities for all abilities and interests. Being able to prepare young people for Maths degrees at Harvard as effectively as for Fashion courses in London is something all our staff are deeply proud of.”
Head of Claremont Sixth, Aaron Eckhoff commented: “I am particularly proud that our students have earned themselves opportunities to not only continue their studies here in the UK, but in many high-profile universities all over the world, and in particular the US.”
These results come at a time of continuing growth for Claremont at their Bodiam site. The new academic year will see the opening of the much anticipated Octagon classroom development as well as a new Performing Arts centre that includes a state of the art Dance studio.
Other notable destinations for Claremont students include University of Durham, University of Bath, Cardiff University, Hull York Medical School, University of Kent, Royal Holloway, Holyoke College in Massachusetts, Lynn University in Florida (Combined Academic and Sports Scholarship), the University of Wisconsin and Connecticut College.
Ed Dickie, Claremont Head of Senior School commented: “Our objective continues to be focused relentlessly on empowering young people to take good decisions and providing them with an amazing learning environment, both inside and outside the classroom. We congratulate this year’s cohort and wish them well in their future careers.”
