A summer of waiting is over for A-level students who arrived at Falmouth School to collect their results on Thursday.

Results day was the culmination of two years of A-level studies, and many students found out whether or not they will be taking their places at university in the autumn.

Pupils achieved a 100% pass rate at A-level, with over 70% of grades in the A*-C range, and all students taking English literature, French, geography, further mathematics, performing arts, photography, physical education and sport attaining a grade of C or better.

Deputy headteacher Alex George said: "All of our students have worked really hard, we are very proud of their achievements and wish each of them every success in the future."

The school praised outstanding individual performances from Beth Wilkinson (A*, 2A and A* in extended project), Eli Wyatt (A*, A and B), Isabel Steele (3A), Will Stott (3A and B), Rosie Venner (A*, B and C) Sam Heslop-George (2A and C), Tamzin Dewar (A, 3B and A in extended project) and Zoe Underwood (A,B and C).

Isabel was pleased with her results, and will be taking a gap year to work in Paris as an au pair before taking a place at Bristol to study languages.

Eli said, who will be going to Exeter to study English and French, said: “I’m pretty surprised, I didn’t really know what I would get, I wasn’t expecting it at all.”

Sam added: “I’m happy with my results, I got into my chosen university”. He will be going to Lancaster to study French.

For the second year running students on the performing arts diploma course excelled, with every student achieving a distinction* or distinction grade (equivalent to A* and A grades). Ethan Brokenshaw and Poppy Head achieved three distinction * grades each, and Alexander Bradshaw achieved a triple distinction.

For the first time at Falmouth School students completed vocational courses in hairdressing, childcare and construction.

Alex said: “Results in these courses were outstanding and many congratulations go to our students for all of their hard work and dedication.”

The results this year mark a five per cent drop in the number of pupils achieving A*-C grades, down from 75 per cent last year.
