A Level Results 2017
Lingfield College is once again delighted to announce a wonderful set of A Level results from our Sixth Form students. Headmaster Mr Richard Bool said, ‘I am really pleased with the way the students have risen to the challenge of the new A Level linear courses. These are designed to be more academically rigorous and have demanded a more consistent and committed work ethic from the students. I would like to extend my congratulations to the staff who have negotiated the switch to these new qualifications so successfully.
The highlight of this year’s results is that over 90% of Year 13 students have achieved their first choice university offer with the majority of our top A Level achievers once again heading to Russell Group universities. Georgina Allen from Dormansland achieved 3 A* and will be reading Geography at Leeds University: Louis Goff from Otford with be heading to Bristol to read Medicine: Alys Nichols from Limpsfield performed outstandingly with A* A A; she will read Medical Engineering at Leeds University. Dormansland resident George Willment will be embarking on the prestigious Digital Media course also at Leeds whereas Andrew Easton from East Grinstead with A* A A, will be heading to Birmingham to study Bio Chemistry.
Lingfield students also performed exceptionally well with their Extended Project Qualifications. Designed to offer our students’ advanced academic and independent research skills, the EPQ is highly regarded by universities with many making preferential offers to students who have undertaken it. As well as achieving straight As, our Head Girl, Cerys Maidment from Forest Row and our Deputy Head Boy, Max Thilo from Lingfield achieved A* grades in their EPQ.
Mr Bool continued, ‘I’d like to congratulate warmly all the outgoing Year 13 students whose parents should be enormously proud, not only of their children’s academic results, but of everything they have contributed to Lingfield College life during their time here. We look forward to hearing news of their future successes and to seeing them at forthcoming Alumni events.’
