Pupils achieve record A level results

Haileybury’s 2007 A Level and International Baccalaureate candidates achieved record results once again. Combining the results of both sets of candidates, over three quarters, 78.8%, of grades were at A or B, which compares with the previous best figure, 78.2%, achieved in 2006.

The AS results also showed a remarkable improvement which bodes particularly well for the future. 65% of AS grades were at A or B, which compares strikingly with 52% in each of the three years 2004 – 2006.

The average UCAS points per candidate fell slightly to 420 from the 2006 figure, 434, which had enabled Haileybury to be placed 28th in The Times League Table of 962 independent schools. This slight fall is explained by a rather smaller proportion of pupils opting for the International Baccalaureate this year.

The Master of Haileybury, Stuart Westley, said: "These results are very gratifying and reflect great commitment on the part of pupils and teachers. Together with the substantial rise in both the number of pupils and the number of boarders in recent years, the latter against the national trend, these excellent examination results confirm that Haileybury continues to strengthen on every measure."

Many pupils achieved outstanding results, none more so than Sabrina Castiglione (H) and Cyrus Yow (E), who both achieved five A grades at A Level and a further grade A at AS.

Jonathan Toffolo (Th) gained 4 As and an A grade at AS Level, while Kanno Ryutaro (Tr), Rosie Jukes (Aby), James Asquith (Th) and Jonathan Peters (L) each gained 4 As. David Male (K), Richard Pain (BFr) and Tim Sherwood (Th) gained 3 As and an A grade at AS Level. Hannah Perry (C) was one of the pupils who achieved 3 As and a B at AS Level. George Bailey-Kirby (Th) gained 3 As and a B as well.

Congratulations to all concerned!
