Alice Smith Students celebrate A level success

19 Aug 2019


Alice Smith students are celebrating another exceptional set of A level results with 54% of all grades at A* or A and 24 students achieving straight A* and A’s.

With such outstanding results the students are now confirming places at the world’s top universities. Over 80% of students wanting to study in the UK have already accepted offers at UK Top 30 universities including prestigious Russell Group institutions, such as the University of Cambridge, Imperial College London and LSE. In the US, Alice Smith students have secured places at top US colleges including Yale University and Brown University, both members of the elite Ivy League.

These results are even more remarkable when you consider that Alice Smith is not a highly selective school, unlike many other UK independent and international schools.

Dr Sarah Howling, Secondary Principal, said “Our students achieve consistently high academic results, however, absolute academic attainment does not show the personal progress and achievement each individual student has made. This is far better reflected by our Value Added score which this year is 0.65 for our A level students. This means that through our supportive and innovative learning environment and excellent teaching we have added, on average, over half a grade to all students. Congratulations to our graduating class of 2019 - we are so proud of you.”
