Top marks for Deputy Head BoyAugust 16th, 2019
A teenager who has been heavily involved in all aspects of life at Monmouth School for Boys achieved three A*s at A level.
Adam, from Tidenham near Chepstow, played football and rugby for the school and spearheaded an outstanding business project, called MySlides, which reached the UK final of the Young Enterprise competition.
A Deputy Head at school, Adam was among 14 boys at Monmouth who recorded three or more A* and A grades.
He will now be heading to the University of Exeter to read Modern Foreign Languages.
Adam joined Monmouth in Year 9 from St John’s on-the-Hill and gained 9A*s and a 9 at GCSE.
Adam’s brother, Dan, was a Deputy Head Boy at Monmouth School for Boys in 2016-17.
During his year as Deputy Head Boy, 18-year-old Adam enjoyed passing on the Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools’ message and taking on a role of responsibility and leadership.
He participated in weekly assemblies, gave speeches and helped out at open mornings and other school events, including the Carol Service and Speech Day. He also chaired the Joint Schools’ Council.
This year, 38.5% of all A-level grades at Monmouth School for Boys were A* to A – well above the national average of 25.5% – and 66.4% were A* to B, an improvement in the results from 2018.
The A* rate was 11.1% – again exceeding the national average.
Headmaster, Dr Andrew Daniel, was delighted that Adam completed his studies at Monmouth with the top grades possible in his French, Spanish and History A levels.
