There were more successes this year for students at Lord Wandsworth College (LWC.) Students at the college, in Long Sutton, achieved 41 per cent of all results as A*-A, and nearly 70 per cent of results as A*-B, with a pass rate of 98 per cent.

The A*-B pass rate was an increase of five percent on last year and close to 12 per cent in the past two years.

The year group further provided an almost clean sweep of A*s in their Extended Project Qualifications as they took and applied their subject knowledge to university-degree level.

Two of the top achievers this time around were Callum Grossmith who achieved three A*s and an A grade as well as Luke Benham, who received two A*s and two As.

Antonia Milla, Jemima Cecil, Will Tomlinson, Sam Wong, Alex Lewis, Beth McKinnon, Queenie Li, Joe Van der Flier, Katie Wills, Ryan Sakellariou, Jacob Bellmore and Charlie Thursfield were all also high achievers, getting a raft of A* and A grades.

Adam Williams, headmaster at LWC, said: “To see a school whose pupils and staff are utterly committed to character education, pupil voice and an all-round education is inspirational, and our pupils can be rightly proud of some of our finest exam performances in recent years which will spur them onwards and upwards in their future careers to make a positive difference in the world; a world where curiosity, creativity and emotional intelligence are key."

“They have been supported by phenomenal teachers too, who strive constantly for new and innovative ways to deliver an ever-changing and complex curriculum.“
