‘Well done to all of our A Level students for their results today’
Aylesbury High School students are heading off to 60 different universities to study around 120 different degree courses, on the strength of today’s A Level results. A number will be studying abroad or including a year in industry as part of their degrees, with almost twenty taking a year out before starting university or employment.
Like many schools, we are seeing the post-18 picture become more varied as students also embrace the range of non-university options open to them, with increasingly attractive apprenticeships and work-based study – our students are taking up professional training with Google, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Grant Thornton this year.
We expect half a dozen students to take up places at Oxford and Cambridge while up to fifteen students will be studying medicine or veterinary medicine.
Forty two students achieved 3 A grades at A Level or better and special congratulations go to the six students who achieved at least 3 A* grades.
Alan Rosen, Headteacher of Aylesbury High School, said, “It is, as always, fascinating to see the impressive range of courses that our students are about to study, both at university and through apprenticeships and other routes. This year they include all the more traditional subjects together with, for example: Aerospace Engineering; Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic; Costume Design; and International Relations. These results are a real tribute to the students’ dedication and talent and we must not forget all the teachers and support staff who have inspired and encouraged them throughout both their primary and secondary education.
This group of students have not only achieved very creditable exam results but have gained so much more during their time at Aylesbury High School: supporting charities, undertaking community service, great sporting and artistic achievements, going on all sorts of trips and expeditions, and enjoying themselves as well. We wish them the very best for the future.”
