A Level Results – August 2022
Congratulations to the Class of 2022 for attaining exceptional A Level examination results.
Students at Reading School have once again achieved truly outstanding A Level results, with 25% of the cohort attaining A* grades in all their subjects, and 50% of all grades awarded being A*. Overall, 93.3% of all entries were awarded A*-B grades.
In contrast to national headlines about students being disappointed with university admissions this year, 90% of our students met or exceeded their entry requirements for one of their two chosen courses, with 85% of these attaining their requirements for their first choice university.
Whilst the School not only has an enviable reputation for STEM subjects, it continues to excel in the Arts, humanities and Languages. For instance, 100% of Art and Music students achieved A* grades, and 78% of Drama grades were also A*. 95% of Spanish, French and German grades were A* or A. In addition, 97.1% of History grades were A*-B and 100% of English Literature students achieved A*-B.
Impressively, 57% of Mathematics grades, 53% of Further Mathematics, 51% of Physics, 51% of Economics and 50% of Computer Science candidates also achieved A* grades.
Mr A M Robson (Headmaster) said:
"This is one of our strongest ever sets of exam results, which is particularly impressive given the significant challenges learners have faced as a result of the pandemic. There are many different pathways to success and today we are celebrating our students’ resilience as well as the full breadth of their achievements.
I would like to thank all the staff at Reading School for their exceptional commitment to our students, and thank parents for their support and trust during times of great trial. In addition, we must thank our Governing Body, led by Mr Robert Kenwrick, for their strategic oversight and direction. I wish all our students the very best for the future, whatever their next chapters hold.”
Mr A Lloyd, Head of Sixth Form added,
"Our students’ adaptability and perseverance have been key attributes which will hold them in good stead for the future. We believe in building character, as illustrated by our recent national award for character education. Indeed, the personal character development upon which academic success is founded, is what we are most proud of. None of this year’s success would have been possible without the support of our dedicated Sixth Form team, Mr D Whitehorn, Miss A Stratford and Mrs H Majarossy-Young, as well as Miss J Pickering, our Sixth Form Tutors, the Society Office and Mrs E Turner, our Exams Officer."
