As a consequence of this great set of results, out of the 146 pupils who chose to apply through UCAS this year 62% achieved their first place, 85% achieving their first or second choice and a vast majority going to a Russell Group Universities. In addition, nine pupils are awaiting their international application. Congratulations to Lorna Lam and Lucas Ng who are off to study in America, and Guilietta Weber who is off to Switzerland; in addition, several others have made successful applications to universities in Germany and Hong Kong.
Temi Adeyemi, who is celebrating her place at Cambridge, said: “When you come to Christ’s Hospital, you fall in love with the place. The School has an element of grandeur about it that just makes you fall in love with it. Before coming here, I didn't really enjoy any particular subject; I just did okay at everything. At CH, I have discovered what I enjoy the most and I have made the most diverse range of friends you could ever imagine.”
Simon Reid, Headmaster of Christ’s Hospital commented: “We have a consistently good record of attainment at Christ’s Hospital and this is another excellent year, particularly as it is the first set of results following the new demanding linear A level course. It is particularly encouraging that this talented group of pupils, who were fully involved in the broader curricular life of a busy boarding school, have performed so well in their academic subjects. It is also pleasing for me to learn that Christ’s Hospital has contributed to a national trend: a record number of pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds securing places at university.”
Christ’s Hospital sixth form pupils also have the benefit of being offered three courses, the broader International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, A2 levels and the Cambridge Pre-U. The results for pupils taking the IB course were announced in July. In 2017, Christ’s Hospital pupils achieved a 100% pass rate with over a quarter of the cohort gaining 40 points or more (out of a maximum possible 45). Almost two thirds achieved 36 points or higher which is equivalent to A*A*AA at A2 level (or 208 UCAS points).
