A Level Results 2017

As you will have seen in the national press, Knights Templar Sixth Form students sat exams in the more challenging reformed A Levels this year and have collected a well-deserved set of A Level results today. 

We are especially pleased that over a third of students (36%) achieved 1 or more of the highest A*/A grades. With 11 students achieving the coveted three or more A*/A and many more exceeding our expectations.

Our destinations data is once again very impressive, with students going to Oxford and Cambridge and a wide range of Universities and apprenticeships all around the country.

The students attending out partner stage school in Hitchin – Emil Dale, are also celebrating, with 68% of grades in their intensive BTEC Musical Theatre Diploma being the top Distinction or Distinction* grade.

Headteacher Tim Litchfield said: “I am delighted with the results! I am very proud of the students and it is a tribute to hard work and a great attitude that there is so much success. Supported by their parents and their extremely dedicated, inspirational teachers, our students have worked with great determination to exceed our expectations. What makes these levels of achievement so impressive is that they were combined with an outstanding commitment to a huge range of extra-curricular activities.

This year has been a hard year for students and teachers with the new A levels, the uncertainty about grade boundaries and new styles of questions, but The Knights Templar School continues to develop well rounded young people, prepared for the world beyond school. Congratulations to all our students and I wish them every success for the future.”

Gill Hopkins, Head of Sixth Form, added:

“With so much current change in education our young people are facing many demands and challenges. Here at The Knights Templar School we are hugely proud of the A level results achieved by our year 12 and 13 students and the diverse range of opportunities they are now embracing at universities and colleges, through apprenticeships and wider gap year initiatives.  Well done to all.”
