North Bridge House Senior School Students Celebrate A Level Achievements
Pupils at North Bridge House Senior Canonbury celebrate best ever A Level results and impressive university places
North Bridge House Senior Canonbury Sixth Form students are celebrating another year of excellent A Level results with 34% of A*/A grades and 21% of all students scoring straight As or higher.
These impressive results buck the national trend which declined from 26.2% to 25.2% for A*/A this year.
Founding members of the school, students Aleksandr Markov and Georgia Prentice achieved A*A*A and AAA respectively. Georgia will read Philosophy at Bristol and Aleksandr will read Neuroscience at Edinburgh.
The pair both celebrated success in Maths, representing the school’s overall outstanding performance in this subject with 46% A*/A grades.
Bertie Lyhne-Gold, Jacob Honig-Rozario and Laith Gergi were also among the students who joined the school when it first opened in September 2014, and were each celebrating securing an A* and two A grades.
North Bridge House Senior Canonbury also celebrated top grade success in English Literature with 50% A*/A grades (vs 24.8% national average) and 50% A*/A grades in Biology (vs 24.4% national average).
Many NBH Senior Canonbury students have gained a place to study at their first-choice university, including the University of Oxford and top Russell Group destinations, such as Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, University College London (UCL) and York.
The 2019 A Level grades build on the excellent results seen in previous years, continuing to see a rise in the number of top grades achieved. This year, 34% of grades were at A*/A and 57% of grades were at A*-B.
At North Bridge House, it isn’t just about purely academic success. Students are offered extra-curricular activities in a wide range of areas, including Sport, Drama and Art, and enjoy the rounded education this variety brings. Sadie Tomlinson, who gained an A in Art and a B in Photography will continue to pursue her passion for the creative subjects while taking up a place at City & Guilds of London Art School next year.
Jonathan Taylor, outgoing Head said,
“These results, across a wide range of academic and creative subjects, are testimony to the hard work of both students and staff. I have always been immensely proud of our attainment as non-selective school, with students typically exceeding predicted grades and achieving more than they thought possible at the outset. I could not have hoped for better results for our founding cohort who are now celebrating one in three A*/A grades in just five years.”
