Students at Prior Park College are celebrating another year of outstanding A Level results.

It is the first year of transition from Modular A Levels to Linear A Levels and the college is delighted with both sets of results which are up at every grade boundary.

Prior Park has seen strong results across the curriculum spectrum, in particular mathematics, all sciences, languages, English literature, theology and history, as well as tremendous results in art and design and technology.

Students have secured places at Oxbridge and medical schools, with a higher percentage than normal going to Russell Group universities, including three securing places at the London School of Economics.

High achievers include Sam Honey and Ben Lawton, who both secured a full house of four A* grades; earning Sam his place at UCL to read mechanical engineering and Ben his place at Durham University to read natural sciences. However, given their fantastic results, both are considering whether to reapply for Oxbridge.

Megan Davies, who trains at University of Bath, has secured a full tennis scholarship at the University of South Carolina. She is currently UK Junior Champion in both singles and doubles, and successfully juggled her three A Levels with her tennis career.

In addition, Lawrence Cotton passed his three A Levels while training with the GB Bobsleigh and Skeleton Association.

The headmaster, Mr James Murphy-O’Connor, said: “This year has seen another outstanding results day from our students. We are extremely proud of our students and these results are a testament to their hard work and the dedication and inspiration of our teaching staff. It’s a joy to be here today and to see so many happy faces.”
