15 Aug 2019

Wellington School is celebrating another strong set of A Level results with 36% of grades being awarded at the top A*/A level. Pupils across the year group will be taking up places on a range of courses at leading universities, including two at Oxford and one at Cambridge.

In addition to Tim Kilbey, Victoria Zhang and Angus Hunter going on to Oxbridge, notable performances came from Alexander Richardson-Jones with 4 A* grades; Michelle Jacob with 3 A* grades, and Morwenna Maunder, Tommy Law and Derek Lai all gaining 3 A* grades and an A.

Outgoing Headmaster, Henry Price commented, ‘Whilst it is easy to focus on the highest grades, I am delighted by a number of pupils who achieved hard-earned results whilst continuing to contribute broadly to the wider life of the School. It is these qualities, as well as their grades, which will serve pupils well in the future and I am proud that Wellington continues to serve able and well-rounded pupils.’

Wellington pupils will proceed on to an excellent range of academic and vocational courses ranging from Maths to Medicine, Economics to English, Over 80% of pupils will be going to their preferred choice of university, with 65% going to Russell Group universities or equivalent.  ‘The individual support for pupils in the Sixth Form at Wellington is a significant factor in guiding pupils towards the right choices, which we hope will be a springboard for ongoing learning and future success. I am very grateful to all the staff at Wellington, who work so hard to support and advise pupils during these crucial Sixth Form years, as well as the parents who support their children through their crucial school years,’ concludes Henry Price.

The reins at Wellington have now been formally handed to Mr du Toit, who said, ‘I congratulate all the leaving pupils on their successes and I look forward to building on the strong academic platform that is already in place at Wellington.’
