A Level cohort breaks School record for attainment of UCAS points following publication of this year's examination results
We are delighted to announce that our 2016 A Level candidates have achieved some of the finest results in the School’s history. Indeed, with each pupil attaining an average of 409 UCAS points, their performance creates a new high-water mark for IPS. 21 pupils achieved three or more A*/A grades and, of these, 5 won three or more A*s. Over three quarters of our entries in the Extended Project Qualification were graded at A* or A and collectively, our pupils proceed onto higher education in the strongest of positions. They now take up places at an impressive spread of world-class universities including Oxford and Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Imperial and University College (London), Groningen in the Netherlands, Stellenbosch in South Africa and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
Not to be outdone by the Sixth Form, our hardworking PVI pupils have also achieved a very impressive set of grades this year. Half the grades attained were A*, 79.3% A* or A, and particular praise goes to those 19 pupils who achieved 9 or more A* grades. Pupils can look forward to starting their Sixth Form studies with much optimism.
We congratulate all our pupils on their tremendous achievements and we wish them the very best for their exciting futures.
