A Level Results 2017

St. Ambrose College has produced its best ever A Level results as boys nationwide have done better in end of course examinations.

 

The improvement at the Hale Barns Catholic Grammar School was dramatic with 74.1% of grades at A* to B and an exceptional 47.5% at A* to A. Three young men have met their Oxbridge offers and a magnificent seven are going on to read Medicine at some of the country's leading medical colleges.

St. Ambrose College Principal James Keulemans said: “I'm delighted with these outstanding results and that so many of our young men will progress to the university of their first choice to read challenging subjects much in demand by the wider society.

 

“Although it does appear that this new examination system does tend to play to boys' strengths and that for the first time in 17 years boys have marginally out performed girls, I cannot stress highly enough that it is not a competition between the genders and that as teachers we want all our young people to flourish. One of the many qualities I admire about this generation is their much greater awareness of gender equality.”

GCSE Results 2017

St. Ambrose College students were on cloud nine and seeing stars after producing a bumper set of GCSE results.

St. Ambrose College Principal James Keulemans said: “We are delighted with this year's results in light of the changes to GCSE's. This is testament to the hard work of students and staff and shows that this generation can rise easily to new challenges.”
