This year we are celebrating the success of our wonderful and talented leavers who have succeeded amidst very challenging circumstances. With grace and dignity our students have faced the unprecedented situation of a global pandemic, and significant disruption to their A Level studies. They worked incredibly hard to show off their skills, knowledge and progress all through their time at Hurtwood. We admire them and congratulate them!
They have achieved extraordinary success in their final examination results. 65% of all grades awarded were either A* or A, and 34% of all grades were actually A*, the very highest available. 87% of grades were A*, A and B, showing the ability of Hurtwood students to be worthy of those prized grades. 18 of our students were awarded three, or even four, A* grades.
We are delighted that so many of our students are currently in the process of confirming their Firm choice university places to study a diverse range of courses from Graphic and Media Design to Cellular and Molecular Medicine, History of Art to Electrical and Electronic Engineering, and International Relations and Law to Song Writing. Students have secured places at traditional institutions including Cambridge, Imperial, LSE, UCL, Edinburgh, Newcastle and Bristol. A wide range of creative and media courses are now confirmed at an array of institutions including University of the Arts London, BIMM Institute, City and Guilds, Falmouth University, Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Kingston University, Met Film School, Northern Contemporary Dance School and Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. Hurtwood students are unafraid to venture overseas, and we are delighted that many are on their way to study abroad at institutions including AMDA, Loyola Marymount University, Paris College of Art, The New School and Vancouver Film School.
We wish them every success for life beyond Hurtwood!
