This cohort of A level candidates were making something of a venture into unknown territories, due to the suspension of public examinations in recent years. The lack of experience did not hold Stover School pupil back at all. Candidates enjoyed a 98% pass rate, with over half of the grades achieved being A*, A or B.
Particular congratulations should go to Soobin Kim, who achieved 2A* and 2 A grades and is going on to read Chemistry at Bristol University. James Griffin, who achieved an A*, 2 As and a B grade and will be studying Geography at Exeter; Anna Stone, who received 5 A grades, will be reading Biology at Durham and Amelie Quartley, who achieved 4 A grades and is going onto study Education with Psychology at Bath University.
Headmaster, Richard Notman, said “This cohort of pupils have endured a most disrupted preparation for their examinations; prior to their A levels this summer, they had never had the opportunity to sit a formal public examination. Consequently, I could not be prouder of the way they have adapted and prepared. We do not select our pupils for Sixth Form entry, so for more than half to achieve A* to B grades, in the circumstances of the last 3 years, is nothing short of incredible. Credit to the pupils and credit to the Stover staff for the resilience and dedication they have demonstrated through trying times.”
