This year we are celebrating the success of our wonderful and talented leavers in the most extraordinary circumstances.
With grace and dignity our students have faced the unprecedented situation of a global pandemic, a closed school and cancelled A Level exams.
They worked incredibly hard to show off their skills, knowledge and progress all through their time at Hurtwood and in the challenging Summer Term particularly. We admire them and congratulate them!
Our leavers can hold their heads up high and celebrate their extraordinary success in their final examination grades, received this week. 67% of all grades awarded were A* or A.
87% of grades were A*, A and B, showing the ability of Hurtwood students to be worthy of those prized grades. Several of our students were awarded three, four, or even five 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 Digital Media and Communications to Medicine, History to Fashion Communications, and Modern Languages to Law. Many have secured places at traditional institutions including Cambridge, Oxford, Imperial, LSE, UCL, Edinburgh and Bristol.
A wide range of creative and media courses are now confirmed at a range of institutions including University of the Arts London, Leeds Conservatoire, Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, Trinity LABAN Conservatoire of Music and Dance, and Salford University.
Hurtwood students are unafraid to venture overseas and we are delighted that many are on their way to study abroad at institutions including in NYU, Syracuse, Loyola Marymount, Polimoda Florence, Peking University, and the Institute of the Arts Barcelona.
We wish them every success for life beyond Hurtwood!
