A-Level results

Derby High School students have, once again, achieved impressive A-level grades with a 100% pass rate across all subjects.

A total of 67% of all grades achieved were at A*- B, with our students securing prestigious university places to study a wide variety of subjects, including medicine, law, languages and STEM courses, as well as top apprenticeships.

Research consistently shows the strength of girls’ schools in encouraging girls into science and engineering, bucking the trend typically seen in mixed schools. Whilst this continues to be true at Derby High, we are equally proud that a third of students studied at least one language to A level, with more than half achieving A*/A.

Alongside their full A levels, a significant number of students elected to complete an Extended Project Qualification, which universities value highly for the independent skills required to achieve at the highest level.   Exploring a diverse range of challenging topics, 73% of these students achieved an A grade.

Headteacher Denise Gould said: “Once again, we are very proud of the results of all our A-level candidates. Their results reflect their hard work to achieve their best against a background of national uncertainty about the new A levels.

 “In addition, they have embraced opportunities to extend their learning through enrichment activities and have been an outstanding asset to the school throughout their time with us.   We have no doubt that they have bright futures ahead of them.”
