88 per cent of all departing students at Guildford County School have secured places at Universities of their choice, including 32 offers from Russell Group Universities.

Two students were offered places at Oxbridge but one preferred Warwick University.

In a press release, a spokesperson for the school said: “Ada Kirczenow and Joseph Hearn, secured places at Cambridge and Oxford University.  Ada will study Natural Sciences at St Catharine’s and Joseph has decided to decline his offer from Oxford University and study Computer Science at Warwick University.

Star pupils: Joseph Hearn – four A*s in Computer Science, Further Maths, Maths and Physics and Ada Kirczenow – four A*s in Biology, Chemistry, Further Maths and Maths. Secured a place at St Catharine’s Cambridge to study Natural Sciences

“We are tremendously proud of Rebecca Boddington and Jeanie Pryer.  Both students have shown exceptional tenacity and dedication and secured places at Durham University to study Climate Science and Biological Science.  A special mention goes to George Shepherd whose dedication to his EPQ was inspirational.  We wish him all the best studying Bio Medical Science at Southampton University.

Marina Warchus has done incredibly well to be accepted at Ravensbourne University, London to study digital Film Production – a highly competitive course and Emma Robertson has accepted a place to study Medicine at Cardiff University.

The students have been an absolute pleasure to have at the sixth form and it has been a privilege to witness their development, we shall miss them very much. We wish each and every one all the very best and know that they will move forward in their lives with strength and great resilience.”

This year’s grades were determined by exams, rather than being assessed by teachers as was the case during the pandemic, and are down on the past two years. But they are still higher than before the coronavirus outbreak.

Education Secretary James Cleverly told the BBC: “We always had a plan that we wanted to get the grades back to the levels we saw pre-pandemic and we’ve taken a big step in the right direction.

“They are still a little bit higher than they were in 2019 but they are down on last year and that’s right and proper.”

An Ofqual survey published by the BBC shows a continuing disparity in results from private and state schools.
