A level results

17 August 2023

Congratulations Christ’s Hospital students on their A level/Pre-U results! Students at Christ’s Hospital should be very proud of their accomplishments having received their A level results. Many of our students have had to overcome significant challenge in achieving these results making them all the more impressive. Within these results there are superb all-round results alongside some fantastic individual achievements.

The cohort achieved 142 UCAS points on average, equivalent to AAB, with 14% of the grades being awarded at A* or above. Two thirds of the grades were awarded at a B or higher of which 39% were graded as A or A*. Of the cohort of 117 students, 146 of the 375 grades were at A or above and there were 53 grades awarded at A* or equivalent. Within the cohort, 40% of the students gained the equivalent of AAA or higher and 15% were at A*, A*, A* or higher.

The top individual secured five A* A-Level grades.

A* % – 13.6
A*-A % – 38.9
A*-B % – 66.9
A*-C % – 86.7
Pass % – 98.9

Many of the students, having gained a string of the very top grades have been accepted onto impressive courses including Mathematics and Classics at Cambridge; Politics, Sociology and East European Studies at UCL; Philosophy, Politics and Economics at King’s College London; Computer Science at Birmingham; Chemistry at Imperial; Anthropology at Durham; Mathematics at Warwick; Mathematics at Imperial; Natural Sciences at UCL; Fashion Contour at University of the Arts and Modern Languages and Linguistics at Warwick.

Simon Reid, Head Teacher of Christ’s Hospital commented, “as one of the more important measures of CH students’ achievements as they conclude their school careers, these results are very impressive. Students here deserve our praise for emerging so strongly from what has been a testing time over the last couple of years, as do their teachers who have provided excitement and clear leadership in facilitating learning.”

Of the four students holding offers from Oxbridge three have confirmed places. Many of our students accepted offers from “higher tariff” universities, including Manchester, Kings College London, Edinburgh, Southampton, Exeter, Bristol, Durham, Imperial College, Warwick and University College London

Of those who applied, 96% have been accepted onto university courses.

GCSE results

24 August 2023

Students and staff are celebrating a good set of (I)GCSE results, representing plenty of personal success stories in this year’s cohort. The GE (Year 11) students should be immensely proud of themselves and the tenacity shown as many of their achievements were against a backdrop of some significant adversity.

The Head Teacher, Simon Reid comments “These are superb results and should be the basis for a real sense of achievement and pride. Of course, there are many facets of success at school that have nothing to do with what happens in a classroom, but today is about academic measurement and Christ’s Hospital’s students have created the strongest possible foundations for their A level years. My congratulations to them all.”

Almost 60% of the grades were at Level 7 or above with 14% being at the highest grade of Level 9 and 35% at Level 8 or higher. Despite the difficulties encountered by some of the students there was a 96.0% pass rate (Level 4 to 9).

Within these there were some great individual performances at the very top end. Out of the cohort of 136 students, 22 students achieved 10 or more grades at Level 7 or above, equivalent to 16%. Sixteen students (12%) achieved at least 9 grades at Level 8 or higher. One student achieved 12 straight Level 9 grades, another gained 11 straight Level 9 grades. Five students achieved a minimum of 10 Level 9 grades.

We wish the cohort all the very best for their future Sixth Form studies.
