The 2013 Upper Sixth Form students at Worth School have achieved outstanding results in this year’s summer examinations. The combined grades of all students, which includes both IB and A Level, represent an A*- B pass rate of 72% and a 100% pass rate in both qualifications.
Students who studied the International Baccalaureate achieved an average score of 35 points. This is equivalent to 3A*s at A Level. In the IB, there were five students who achieved an outstanding 40+ points out of a possible maximum of 45 points. In the A Levels, there were 17 students who achieved a minimum of 3 A* or A’s.
There were 77 A Level candidates this summer at Worth School, of whom 16 were girls and 61 were boys. The number of girls at Worth continues to grow and the school is now fully co-educational.
The results have meant that almost all of the Sixth Form students from Worth School will go on to higher education. The universities that the students will be attending vary, for example Felicity Smith is heading to St Andrews to read Psychology, Oliver Pateman will read History at UCL and Aloysius Atkinson will be going to Oxford to read History. Many of the Worth School graduates will be attending one of the prestigious Russell Group universities. It is also worth noting that all Oxbridge applicants were successful in securing their places at their chosen universities.
Head Master Gino Carminati commented: “This year has been pleasing, with some excellent results. I am delighted for the students and staff who have all worked so hard and who should feel very proud of these achievements.”
Anne Lynch, Academic Deputy added: “Many congratulations to all our Year 13 students on their excellent examination results. We wish them much success and great happiness as they embark upon the next stage of their lives”
