Today we are celebrating an excellent set of A Level Results at Nottingham High School, with 55% of all passes at the highest A* and A grades. A quite remarkable 40 students have gained 3 A grades or better, and 21.4% of all passes were at the top grade of A*.

With a 100% pass rate, this year’s cohort has excelled. All exams taken were passed; 96.2% of passes were at C or above, 84.34% at B or above. 11 students gained at least 3 A* grades and 3 gained at least four A* grades.

Headmaster Kevin Fear says: “We are delighted with these excellent results which demonstrate that our students, with the support of their teachers and parents, have worked incredibly hard. Within these overall statistics there are many remarkable stories of pupils who have exceeded their expectations.”

A total of 10 students have secured places at Oxford or Cambridge Universities and at least 6 have prestigious places to study Medicine, with others still waiting on final decisions from their chosen university. The vast majority of students at Nottingham High School have gained their first choice of university places.

Kevin Fear says: “This year group has worked incredibly hard to achieve these impressive results, but they have also contributed so much more outside of the classroom. They leave us with brilliant qualifications but also they have become really impressive, quietly confident young people ready to move on to their further education.”
