Celebrations as Prior Park Achieves Outstanding A Level Results
18th September 2014

Staff and students at Prior Park College are celebrating another year of brilliant A Level results, achieving a 100% pass rate


Prior Park College is celebrating another bumper year of A Level results. With a 100% pass rate for its A Level students, 78% of whom gained the top A*-B grades, and one in every two entries achieving grade A or better, the majority of students have achieved entry to their first choice university.


No less than fifteen departments are celebrating hugely impressive results, with 50% of grades being an A or above. This is a fantastic result for these departments, namely Art, Biology, Classical Civilisation, Chemistry, Dance, English, French, Maths and Further Maths, German, Geography, History, Latin, Music, Spanish and Theology, and just proves how strong the teaching is across the curriculum.


Prior Park College celebrates the abilities and achievements of each individual student, recognising the hard work put in by each to meet their own expectations and targets. 30% of Prior Park’s 2014 cohort gained straight A to A* grades, and all candidates who had received Oxbridge offers are have earned the grades required to take up their place. Achievements are recognised across the entire year group, with students who joined at Sixth Form level, as well as our EAL and LDP students, also producing strong results.


Unusually, there are three sets of twins in this year’s Upper Sixth, Harriet and Eleanor Gallegos, Patsie and Chloe Christie and Anna and Esther Haskins, all of whom have achieved brilliant results, as well as offering an invaluable contribution to other aspects of school life, as is the Prior Park way.


Headmaster at Prior Park College, James Murphy-O’Connor, is delighted by the results, commenting: “I am overjoyed for our students. These results have come about as a result of hard work combined with brilliant teaching and incredibly strong pastoral support. Whilst as a school we emphasise and celebrate all aspects of education, we nonetheless acknowledge the vital importance of good academic results. These students now head on into the world with our sincere gratitude and very best wishes.”
