Sixth form students at The Charter School North Dulwich in South East London are today celebrating another set of fantastic A level and BTEC results.
57% of students achieved at least one A grade or equivalent with over 23% of students gaining an A* or A grade in each of their subjects. It is expected that the vast majority of students will progress to their first choice of university, college or apprenticeship, including six students who have secured places at Oxford and Cambridge and three students going on to medical school.
72% of all A level grades this year were A*-B, up from 67% in 2018. 44% of all A levels sat by students at the school achieved A*/A, up from 41% last year. 49% of our Year 13 students gained at least three A levels with A* to B grades, up from 44% last year.
It was also another strong performance this year in BTEC subjects with 100% of students taking the Sports and Leisure BTEC gaining a Distinction or Merit grade, 93% gaining a Distinction or Merit in the Performing Arts BTEC and 82% of gaining a Distinction or Merit in the Business BTEC.
The Charter School North Dulwich is an inclusive, state funded school, recognised as one of the top 10% schools in the country for achievement in the sixth form. Head teacher, Christian Hicks, said today, “Our students have once again demonstrated their incredible perseverance and focus on excellence through these brilliant results. The past two years have been challenging for both students and staff as the government’s A level reforms came into full effect and I am extremely proud of the results today which evidence the hard work and commitment of everyone involved.”
