Congratulations to Chiswick School sixth formers

Chiswick School sixth formers are celebrating an excellent set of A Level and Level 3 Vocational studies results which are significantly higher than the national average.

This is the cohort of students who had their education disrupted by the Covid pandemic, who had their GCSEs marked by teachers, so for most students the A Level exams were their first public exams.

Grades have now returned to levels similar to those pre-pandemic. Nationally, about three-quarters of A-level entries were awarded grade C or above in 2019 and 2023, compared with 82% last year.

At Chiswick School 55% of students who studied Maths A Level were awarded an A* or A grade, while across the whole range of subjects 33% of students were awarded A* or A, compared with a national average of 26.5%.

At Chiswick School 87% of all the grades were at A*-C, compared with a national average of 75.4%.

The school posted on social media:

‘We are immensely proud to announce this year’s outstanding A-level results, a testament to the unwavering dedication & commitment of both our students & staff. We look forward to seeing the remarkable contributions they will undoubtedly make in the future’.
