Exam congratulations and university places for Ipswich School A level students

Nearly 20 percent of A level students at Ipswich School got at least three A grades or above this summer, with over 40 percent of exams being graded at A* or A.

Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “I would like to congratulate our students on their A level results – they recognise the effort put in by these young people over the last two years, and the parents and staff who have supported them.  I am pleased that our results have held up, in a year which has seen the start of major on-going reforms to the A Level exam process.  The majority of our students are off to university in September; I wish them, and all our former sixth formers, every success for the future.”

Nineteen students achieved at least three A grades or above, with some particular successes including: Emily Jeffery, who achieved four A* grades and will be studying Modern and Medieval Languages at Cambridge University; Caleb Bond, who achieved three A * and two A grades and will be studying Engineering at Durham University; Liz Herbert, who achieved three A* and an A grade and will be studying Neuroscience at Nottingham University and Luke Camilleri, who achieved three A* and a C grade and will be studying Law at King’s College London.

Six Year 13 students also took the Extended Project Qualification alongside their A Levels, and all students were awarded either an A* or A grade.  To achieve this demanding qualification, which is recognised by universities as evidence of higher level understanding, pupils have to research a topic of their choosing, writing a 5000 word paper at the end. 

There were 102 students taking A level exams this year at Ipswich School.  42.3% of exams were graded A* or A, 88.9% of exams were A*-C grades, and 99.1% of exams were A*-E grades. There were particularly strong results in Russian, where over 90% of candidates got A* or A grades, and in modern foreign languages generally, with over 60% of the grades awarded at A* or A.
