A Level Results 2017 - Our Best Ever
The Hertfordshire & Essex High School is thrilled to announce its best ever A Level results and is celebrating a third record breaking year. The 2016-17 cohort of Year 13 students have surpassed all previous results with a staggering 37% gaining A*- A grades; 68% achieved A* - B grades. 98% of students secured their post Year 13 destination of choice with 5 students confirming places at Oxbridge universities. There is much to celebrate and all students are to be congratulated on their fantastic achievement.
Headteacher Cathy Tooze commented, ‘I am incredibly proud of our students and what they have achieved this year. These results are exceptional and are testament to the tremendous hard work and energy that our students have put in over the last two years. They are also testament to the dedication and commitment of staff on both an academic and pastoral level. Students from Herts & Essex leave us as well rounded, superbly educated young people destined for the best universities and ready to embrace their new opportunities.’
Caroline Lewis, Acting Director of Sixth Form said, ‘It has been a pleasure to work with our Year 13 students over the past year and I am delighted for them. This is an outstanding set of results and the students should be very proud of their achievements. Congratulations and thanks go to both students and staff for all their hard work – only a joint commitment can lead to such outcomes. We are thrilled that this year’s Year 13 cohort has secured some fantastic university destinations including many of the best universities in the world: Medicine at Oxford, Languages at Cambridge, Classics at Kings College, Computer Science at Edinburgh, Law at Oxford, Engineering at Nottingham, Dentistry at Bristol, Artificial Intelligence at Manchester and Economics at Oxford. With such strong grades as a starting point, I have no doubt that they will go on to achieve well in whatever area they choose. We wish them all the very best of luck in the future.’
