One of the most nerve-wracking days of student’s lives has arrived, A Level results day.

Moving away from coursework and modular exams, many students opening their envelopes today have taken exams at the end of the school year, piling on the pressure as they prepare for life after sixth form.

At Beths Grammar School, 56 per cent of grades were A* to B, with a number of students ready to make their way to top universities.

James Burford, who earned three A*s and one A, is off to Oxford University to read Philosophy, Politics and Economics, while Red Bamford will be reading Mathematics and Bristol after picking up two A*s and one A.

Meanwhile vice principal at Bexleyheath Academy, Mark Lewis, said it had been “an absolute” delight to open results with students on Thursday.

More than half the grades achieved by students was either an A* or an A, with 83.9 per cent achieving grades A* to C.

Mr Lewis said: “My thanks to all students for their hard work and perseverance, to the sixth form team for their guidance and leadership of the provision and our wonderful teaching staff. To our parents, I would also like to offer thanks for engagement with the Academy and being there in the background to guide and nurture. We wish all students the very best of success, we are so very proud of you all”.

Whilst a significant number of students did exceptionally well, successes include Hillary Simpson (A*B B), progressing to the University of Warwick to study Law. In reflecting on her time at the Academy Hillary Simpson, who achieved A*, B and B grades, said “The academy has supported me on my academic journey and the guidance that they have given me since I arrived here to undertake my A-Levels has been brilliant. I now look forward to my next steps studying law and will remember the academy fondly for the opportunities I have been given.”

On average, post 16 students at Garrard Academy, formerly the Business Academy Bexley, achieved B grades, with all university applicants achieving one of their choices.

Every student at Blackfen School passed their A Levels, with 82 per cent of grades at A*-C.
