It was a nervous wait as pupils at the Royal Alexandra and Albert School collected their results today, and for most pupils it was good news all around.
Oliver Berry achieved 2 A*s, 6 As and 2 Bs. He said of his results, “I’m so happy, excited, everything! I’m so pleased with my A* in French and how I did overall.” After he collected his results he met new Headmaster, Mark Dixon who was speaking to pupils as they found out their results. Mr Dixon said, “I’m pleased Oliver secured excellent grades and we look forward to welcoming him back to our Sixth Form.” Oliver is looking forward to returning to the school to do A Levels in Chemistry, Physics, Maths and French.
Identical twins Shazia and Sophia Nunhuck had identical results in almost all their identical subjects. Between them they achieved a total of 12 As, 5 A*s and 3 Bs. They were particularly pleased with their joint A*s in French and Spanish. Sophia said, “I didn’t expect to get what I did. I’m really pleased with my results.”
Catherine Currums was jumping with excitement as she read her results of 4 A*s, 5 As and 1 B. “This is great, I can’t believe it. I wanted to do well but I didn’t think these were the results I was going to be opening today.”
The results for science were particularly good. 98% of pupils who took physics got a grade A*-C and the same percent passed chemistry. Biology was close behind with 96% of pupils gaining a grade A*-C. Mark Dixon commented “These are excellent results and a fitting reward for the pupils who worked so hard to achieve them”.
