Exam congratulations and university places for Ipswich School A level students

Almost half of Ipswich School’s A level students have received A* or A grades for their hard work in this year’s exams, with ten students getting at least three A* grades.

Headmaster Nicholas Weaver said: “I would like to congratulate our students on their A level results – they reflect the effort put in by these young people over the last two years, and the parents and staff who have supported them. We are particularly pleased with these grades as they show that we have improved on last year’s excellent results in every measure. 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.” 

The ten students who got three or more A* grades are: 

Rory Hennell James, who achieved five A* and an A grade and will be studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University; Chloe Watson, who achieved four A* grades and will be studying Veterinary Science at Liverpool University; Oli Morris, who achieved four A* grades and is taking a gap year before applying to university; Michael Lavelle, who achieved three A* and two A grades and will be studying Engineering at Cambridge University; Ieuan Davies, who achieved three A* and an A grade and will be studying Natural Sciences at Durham University; Rebecca Lo, who achieved three A* and an A grade and will be studying Maths, Operational Research, Statistics and Economics at Warwick University; David Willer, who achieved three A* and an A grade and will be studying Natural Sciences at Cambridge University; Thomas Wyer, who achieved three A* and an A grade and will be studying History at Cambridge University; Emma Burn, who achieved three A* grades and will be studying Medicine at Birmingham University; and Stephen Chilver, who achieved three A* grades and will be studying Medicine at Nottingham University. 

One Ipswich School pupil, England U21 hockey player and former Head Girl Francesca Tew, is following in the school’s hockey traditions, and has taken up a field hockey scholarship at Stanford in the USA. Another A level pupil Anthony Holley is also off to the USA to study Engineering at Columbia.
