Students at Christ’s Hospital near Horsham have again achieved excellent A-level results.

An impressive 82 per cent of all grades in the A-level system were A*-B, with over one-third of the cohort (39 students) gaining three A grades or better and an overall pass rate of 100 per cent.

The average number of UCAS points score per A-level pupil was just over 338.

Christ’s Hospital is confident that it will continue to maintain its proud tradition of sending the majority of its leavers to top universities in the UK and abroad.

The head master, John Franklin, congratulated the students and their teachers on these fine results.

He added: “We have a good record of attainment at Christ’s Hospital and this is another pleasing set of results. We’re delighted that the hard work of the pupils and staff has paid off so handsomely.”

The highest performing A2 pupils were:

• Quentin Corker-Marin (A*,A*,A*,A) (from Norman’s Bay, East Sussex)

• Oscar Edell (A*, A*, A) (from Haywards Heath)

• Lara Hogan (A*, A*,A)

• Daniel Huntington (A*, A*, A)

• Romily Manetta-Wheeler (A*, A*, A)

• Harvey Shepherd (A*, A*, A)

• Jeffrey Hiu Wang Ho (A*, A*, A*, A, B)

• Leighton Wong (A*, A*, A, A)

Excellent performances also by the second cohort of International Baccalaureate Diploma pupils, whose results came out in July, averaged 34 points and nearly all of these have gained places at university including four who scored over forty points.

These were Henner Petin (43), George Manning (42) (from Horsham), Sicily Fiennes (41) and Megan Tranter (40) (from Horsham).

Their results have enabled them to accept courses at Oxford, Durham and UCL to study Classics, English, Biological Sciences and Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE).
