Tring School achieves outstanding A-level and BTEC results
Tring School is once again celebrating outstanding A-level and BTEC results with 49.6% of students achieving A*, A and Distinction grades – increasing the number of pupils receiving top grades by 17%.
This year’s A-level results will continue to rank Tring School’s Sixth Form as one of the most successful in both Hertfordshire and nationally.
Head Girl Carys Reid-Davies achieved a very impressive 2A*s and A, accomplished alongside the extensive leadership responsibilities she has held during the academic year. Carys is going on to study Film, Photography and Media at the University of Leeds.
Amongst the many other A-level success stories some of the high performers include Jack Murphy who achieved 3 A*s, Lauren Renshaw with two A*s and one A and James Child (who is expecting to be studying veterinary medicine at Cambridge) with one A* and three As. Oliver Ayling and Emily Durrant both achieved one A* and two As. Meanwhile Olivia Dawson and Victoria Gibbons both achieved three As.
In the BTEC qualifications, James Gurnett achieved two Distinction*s (equivalent to an A* at A Level) and one Distinction, whilst Imogen Davies achieved two Distinction*s and one B at A Level.
Tring’s A-level and BTEC students are now moving on to their favoured destinations, including taking up degree courses at top universities, apprenticeships, jobs with training or taking a gap year to travel.
Commenting on this year’s results, Headteacher Sue Collings said: “These fantastic results are a testament to the hard work and determination of our students, who continue to embrace every learning opportunity. These exceptional grades are proof that Tring School is a great place for education.
“The ongoing commitment of our staff, parents and governors also plays an important part in supporting our pupils to achieve excellence and I would like to thank them for their continued efforts.
“The Tring School motto continues to be a source of inspiration as well as reality for our talented students who ‘Live to Learn and Learn to Live’. We wish our A-level students all the very best as they take their next steps in life.”
