Haileybury pupils achieve 54% A grades

Haileybury's A Level pupils have produced excellent results this year, with 54,1% achieving A grades, up from 49,7% last year. The number of A-B grades for A Levels and the International Baccalaureate is 81%.

The percentage of A grades marks Haileybury's best year yet and results are increasing sharply each year. The 2007 total of A grades was 42.2%, and 37.6% for 2006.

Two pupils, Rupert Flint Cahan (K) and James Turing (E), achieved four As and an A grade at AS Level, while another seven pupils achieved four As. They are: Amy Gandon (H), Charles Richards (Th), Tim Stoten (K), Daniele Guerrieri (L), Danna He (Alb), Clementine Reed (H) and Herbert Swaniker (Th).

In total, 27 out of 94 candidates achieved three As or better.

In addition, more than 60% of the Higher Level grades obtained in this year's International Baccalaureate results were the prestigious 6 or 7, while 65% of Standard Level scores were also at those top grades.

The Average Points Score, at 35.3, although slightly below the last year's level of 35.9, is ahead of the average for the years 2005 – 2007. The average UCAS point score per A Level and IB pupil is 390.

Haileybury's incoming Master, Joe Davies, says: "We are thrilled with these results, especially the percentage of A grades attained. Taking into account the excellent IB results which were announced in July, as well as the stability in the number of pupils and of boarders, there is clear evidence that Haileybury is continuing to strengthen in every way."
