Bromsgrove School – A Level results 2012

16 Aug 2012

Local girl Elizabeth Leather is one of many Bromsgrove School pupils who will be celebrating after the School’s Upper Sixth achieved the best top end A level results in the School’s history. Elizabeth won a choral scholarship to her Headmaster’s Oxford College, Merton, after managing to achieve an A* in Music as well as 40 points in the International Baccalaureate – an extraordinary double. Overall, 170 pupils sat 598 A levels and achieved a remarkable 88.0% A* to B grades with 61% at A* and A, and a quarter at A*. Close to one half of the pupil body achieved three or more As and A*s, with over 20% achieving four or more A and A* grades. All Oxford and Cambridge candidates achieved their offers. The average UCAS point tariff at A level was 440, which is equivalent to A*, A, A at A level with a further A grade in an AS level. (The average Bromsgrove International Baccalaureate tariff was in excess of 500 UCAS points). Headmaster Chris Edwards said: “To secure these sensational averages in a year when many bright pupils had actually opted for the International Baccalaureate and achieved equally stunning outcomes a month earlier is nothing less than remarkable. Staff, pupils and parents should be bursting with pride. And we are doing this in the subjects that really matter. For example: eighty two pupils sat A level Maths with almost half achieving A* and over three quarters getting at least an A. These young men and women will make a difference in and to the future.”
