Guildford County School is celebrating another set of excellent A-level results today, with over 57% of students achieving an A*-B, and an impressive 30% gaining an A*-A. 

Overall, the students enjoyed a pass rate of over 99%. 80% of all grades were A*-C grades.

Individual successes were many, in a range of subjects. This year nineteen students hold three or more As or better. This is nearly a fifth of the cohort. Guildford County School is particularly proud of several outstanding individual results from students – Bo Beynon (A* A* A* A*), Lucy Neal (A* A* A*), Matthew Doran (A* A* A* A*), James Wolfenden (A* A* A* A), Katie Winchcombe (A* A* A), Harry Digby (A* A* A*) and Sam Dauncey (A* A* A and a Distinction in Advanced Extension Award for Maths).  Helen Nurton, Director of Sixth Form said “I am delighted with this year’s exam results and these are the students that led the school to raise over £10,000 for charity earlier in the year. They have been a fabulous year group. We will miss them and we wish them every success in the future.” 

We are delighted that all students who have applied to University have secured places at prestigious universities across the country and 44% achieving places to Russell Group Universities including Durham, Exeter and Manchester. 

Two County students holding Oxbridge offers have achieved their places. Bo Beynon has secured a place at Jesus College, Cambridge to read Natural Sciences. Matthew Doran has secured a place at Brasenose College, Oxford to read Geography. 

Guildford County Head of School Steve Smith welcomed the exam successes of County’s A-level students: “I am delighted that we have once again seen results that will allow our students to successfully transition into the next stage of their lives.  100% of Oxbridge applicants achieved the grades that they need to take up their places and huge numbers got the top A* grade at A level.  I thank our staff for their dedication, our students for their hard work and their parents and carers for their tireless support.”

The Farnham Road School, operates a mixed sixth form where the vast majority of students stay into the sixth form and attracts an increasing number of external students to its academic, vibrant and successful A’ level courses.

Executive Headteacher Jack Mayhew is proud of Guildford County School’s reputation and is delighted to see so many students progressing to some of the best institutions in the country. “Our students deserve credit for their hard work and I wish them every success in their further studies and chosen career paths.”
