A Level Results 2022

Cobham Hall today celebrates excellent A Level results, with the School’s Year 13 cohort securing a host of first-rate grades and places at some of the UK’s top universities.

In this, our third year of A Level results – and the first in which students sat examinations, after the disruption of Covid – we are delighted to report that 79% of grades achieved were A* to C. Moreover, almost one-third of all grades (32%) were at the highest level, A* to A, prized by universities around the world. Indeed, the School’s strong Russell Group showing this year means one-third of the Cobham Hall students now heading to university have secured places at these prestigious institutions.

Individual student successes include Austina, who achieved AAAB and now plans to study Chemical Engineering; Ella, who gained A*BB and A* in EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) and takes up a place at Liverpool to study Psychology; and Joey, heading to the University of Birmingham with A*BBB and A* in EPQ, to study Politics and International Relations.

Other students will continue their education at universities such as Leeds, Nottingham Trent, and Aston, studying a broad range of subjects which include Modern Languages and International Relations, Biomedical Science, and Psychology and Criminology. One student has secured a place to train as a Race Technician with the National College of Motorsport.

A Level subject highlights include Maths, where 50% of grades were A*to A, and 75% A* to B, and Physics, in which 100% of results were at the highest grade, A* to A. Other standout performances include PE, Politics and Spanish, each of which saw 100% of grades reach A* to B, with Psychology close behind, at 60% A* to B.

Headmistress Mrs Barrett commented: “It is wonderful to see so many of our students secure places at their first and second choice universities thanks to these excellent results. This cohort had to deal with great change and disruption in the face of Covid-19, and most had no previous experience of public examinations. We are so proud of their achievements, of their determination and their resilience. We send each our warmest congratulations and will follow their future education and careers with pride, whatever path they choose.”
