Students at Haberdashers’ Monmouth Schools celebrated an outstanding set of A level results this year.
The two schools gained twice the national average for the top A level grades.
Monmouth School for Boys enjoyed its best results since 2012, with 21% of pupils achieving A* grades, and 55% A* to A. At Monmouth School for Girls, 17% were A* grades and 54% were A* to A.
Two boys – Sam and Jonathan – achieved a remarkable four A*s in their examinations. One girl – Amelia from Chepstow – was awarded four A*s and will be reading maths at Imperial College London.
A total of 76% of the boys were awarded A* to B grades and 28% achieved three or more A to A* grades. It was a similar success at the girls where a total of 75% were awarded A* to B grades and more than a third (34%) achieved three or more A to A* grades.
Dr Andrew Daniel, Headmaster of Monmouth School for Boys, said: “We are particularly pleased that the boys achieved such outstanding academic results while also contributing with great energy and enthusiasm to the many areas of our co-curricular programme. We achieved our best set of results in five years – with 55% achieving A* to A grades, and 76% A* to B. These headline statistics are very strong indeed, and something for the boys and staff to be proud of.”
Dr Caroline Pascoe, Headmistress of Monmouth School for Girls, said: “We have achieved a great set of results in the first year of the new linear A levels. More than half of all grades were A* to A and over a third of all candidates achieved three or more A to A* grades. It is a huge relief when the hard work and dedication of staff and pupils pays off and the girls achieve their personal best, whether that is an A*, A, B or C grade. We wish our students every success as they move on to the exciting next stage of their lives.”
