Students At Howell’s Co-Ed College Hit The Heights

It was an emotionally charged morning at Howell's Co-Ed College as students arrived to collect their A-level results. In an exam year that has been called the toughest since A-levels began, anxious faces were transformed into ones filled with joy as students opened the envelopes containing their results. Despite the major overhaul to the exams, 26% of all results were an A*— the highest percentage of A* grades that the school has achieved for the last six years.

Of the 73 students sitting A-levels at Howell's Co-Ed College this summer, 26% of all results were the highest A* grade, with 74% receiving A*-B grades. Six students achieved all A*s, and 30% of students achieved all A* and A grades. 100% students studying Further Mathematics achieved an A*, 100% of those studying Music achieved an A*, and all those studying Mathematics achieved at A*-B.

Principal Sally Davis, said: "I could not be more proud of this year's results. The number of A* grades that the students have achieved is truly outstanding. These students have been the first cohort to all take the new, tougher exams, studying more complex content, as well as relying solely on exam results for determining their final grade, rather than coursework assessed during their two years with us in the college. They have risen to the challenges presented to them with confidence, and impressed everyone at Howell’s with their determination and dedication. I look forward to seeing them all back at Prizegiving in September, when we will be able to bid them a final farewell before they embark upon their exciting new journeys.”
