In defiance of the slightly changeable August weather this morning, August 15, Bishop Wordsworth’s School was full of happy boys receiving their A level results and celebrating with their mates.
Stuart Smallwood, Head Master, said: “By any measure they did well this year – a 100% pass rate is always pleasing, but a better measure of the calibre of their performance is the fact that nearly 73% of the grades were at A*-B, and 21% were at the top A* level. Most importantly of all, that hard work and success will mean our boys take their places in the most competitive university courses throughout the UK and abroad, including a record 19 at Oxbridge!
“Well done to all of them, and thank you for the huge efforts of my staff and parents in helping our boys get where they want to be. The fantastic results show what happens here, as we look forward to inviting girls as well as boys to Bishop’s Sixth Form in September 2020.”
