A-Level results

Derby High School students once again achieved impressive A-level grades in 2015 with a 100% pass rate across all subjects.

A total of 77% of all grades achieved were A*-B grade, an increase this year of 7%.  Six girls achieved straight A*/A grades in their A-level option subjects with 25% of all students achieving at least 3 A*/A grades.

Alongside their option subjects, 86% of students also successfully completed an Extended Project Qualification and/or an A level in General Studies, which universities are known to take into account when deciding on final offers.

Half of the grades achieved in STEM subjects were at A*/A, with over 50% of the year group choosing to study these subjects.   A quarter of students also studied at least one language to A level.

Headteacher Denise Gould said: “Once again, we are extremely proud of the results of all our A-level candidates. They have worked exceptionally hard and have achieved personal success as a result of their genuine effort and hard work. 

 “The students have gained great results alongside individual success in a wide range of additional activities designed to develop the skills so valued by higher education establishments and employers alike.   

“Research consistently shows the strength of girls’ schools in encouraging girls into science and engineering, bucking the trend typically seen in mixed schools. Derby High School is equally strong in this respect as these statistics show.

“With students taking up prestigious apprenticeships alongside places at a wide variety of universities, including the most highly competitive institutions, we are extremely proud of our young leaders of the future.”
