It was a day of smiles for 135 Year 13 students at Christleton High School as they picked up their A level results, with more than half of all grades at A*- B level and almost a third at A* - A.

Exceptional results were achieved by a number of students including:

Olivia Jones who achieved 2 A* and 2 A grades and is set to read English literature at St Hugh’s College, Oxford. 

Similarly, having deferred entry last year, Ben Walsh will take up his place at Cambridge University to study English literature.

Among the success stories, four students will begin their undergraduate study at Durham University:

Jonathan Dearden-Williams attained 4 A* and 1 A grades and is set to read mathematics and European studies.

Aaron Bell attained 3 A* grades and will read economics.

Laura Croenen achieved 2 A* and 2 A grades and will read natural sciences.

Eleanor Chatterton achieved 1 A* and 3 A grades and will read history.  Hannah Sweeney will study international history and politics at Leeds, having attained 2 A*s and 1 A grade.

Emma Welch is off to York to begin a career in medicine.

Headteacher Tony Lamberton was glowing in his praise for the students’ achievements.

He said: “We had very high expectations of this year group and they have come to fruition in these outstanding results.

“Young people are under a great deal of pressure and it is a credit to their determination and commitment to learning that they have met the demands of A level study so successfully.

“We are very proud of all of their achievements and wish them well in their future careers.”
