Students at Meopham School have been celebrating their A Level results today.

Over the last three years, results at the school have risen steadily.

All of the students passed their A-Level exams, achieving an average of three B grades, and there were a number of outstanding results.

Assistant Headteacher and Director of Sixth Form Manj Nijjer said: “Seeing the joy on the students’ faces as they open their results makes all the effort over the last two years worthwhile.

“Qualifications really open doors and it is so rewarding to be sending so many of them onto university.”

Ben Hatherly, who achieved A* in photography, B in art, and a Distinction* in ICT, said: “ I did better than I expected and am now really looking forward to taking up my place at the University of Portsmouth to study photography.”

George Goldsmith, who has accepted a place at the University of York to study business accounting, achieved two Distinction* in ICT and business studies, a B in finance, and a C in english literature. He said: “I am absolutely amazed at my results. I am privileged to have studied at Meopham School.”

Headteacher, Suzanne Dickinson, said: “These superb results are clear proof of the significant progress that the school has made in the last two years. We are immensely proud of the outstanding results that our students have achieved this year. Both students and staff have worked incredibly hard to bring about this success.”

Deputy Headteacher, Cat Taylor, added: “It is fantastic that 79 per cent of our Year 13 pupils this year achieved at least the equivalent of one A*-B grade this year. This is wonderful.”
