A-level Results 2022

This year saw our Balcarras Year 13 cohort achieve fantastic results.  The cohort performed superbly, and they should feel incredibly proud of the results they attained: 71% A*-B, 89% A*-C and 99% A*-E. 44% of all grades were either A* or A, and 42 students achieved a straight sweep of 3 A*- A grades, 4 of whom, Louis Flintham, Sebastian Harris, Olivia Skelton and Elijah Thomas-Friend, achieved 4 A*-A grades, whilst Louis Forster and Aoife Leatherbarrow achieved a brilliant 4 A*s apiece! 

There was a fantastic atmosphere on results day with a huge proportion of students being accepted onto their first-choice courses at universities, including some who will be continuing their studies at Oxbridge colleges, and a wide range of Russell Group universities, with one student, Diego Placide, accepting a place to study at Western University in Toronto! 

These fantastic achievements are a great measure of the consistency and quality of teaching and learning in the Sixth Form at Balcarras, and also testament to the hard work invested by students and staff alike throughout what has been a tumultuous few years for all.  Regardless of the future destinations of our departing Year 13 students, we wish all of them the very best in the future.
