(14th August 2008)
A Level pupils at Haileybury, an independent, co-educational boarding school in Hertfordshire, have emphasised the continued strengthening of the school by posting record A Level results and a 100% pass rate. There has been an almost 10% increase in the percentage of A Level grades at A or B at 82,1%, up from 72,5% in 2007.
In addition, the average IB point score was 35.4, up from 34.9 in 2007. The average UCAS point score per pupil is 403.77 and the UCAS points per subject is 101.70.
The percentage of A grades is 49.7%, a very substantial advance on the previous best, 43.5% in 2005.
Five candidates who achieved 4 A grades or more were from the Hertfordshire area, including Christopher Allen (Harlow), Jamie Bennett (Broxbourne), Daniel Duckworth (Welwyn), Scott Woods (Tewin) and Natalie Englander (Essendon).
In total, 25 out of 91 candidates achieved 3 As or better.
The Master, Stuart Westley, says: "The Haileybury community is delighted at these exceptional results, which are the best ever by a substantial margin. If one takes into account these excellent results, the increase in the number of pupils and of boarders, there is clear evidence that Haileybury is continuing to strengthen."
Pupils also achieved exceptional AS Level results, with one Haileybury pupil, Danna He, achieving 100% for all her Mathematics modules, as well as achieving A grades in Economics, Chinese and Physics.
