Pitsford School pupils celebrated an impressive set of A Level results this year with 46 per cent of all grades awarded either A* or A.

23 per cent of sixth formers secured three A grades or better.

Proud of its extra-curricular programme and pastoral care within a caring and supportive environment, Pitsford School was delighted that 68 per cent of all grades awarded were A* to B.

54 per cent of pupils attained AAB or higher surpassing last year’s results and reinforcing Pitsford School’s reputation of being one of the highest achieving, co-educational independent schools in Northamptonshire.

Top scoring male and female pupils included Alice Cai with three A*s, one A and one B, Jeffrey Zhao with four As, Cora Zhang with two A*s, two As and one B, Jonathan Martin with one A*, one A and one B and Pitsford School head boy, James Goldthorpe with one A*, one A and two B grades.

Head boy James Goldthorpe said: “I’m delighted with my results.

“Being part of the sixth form at Pitsford School has been a brilliant experience as there’s such a great community spirit.”

James, 18, who was a member of the school’s debating society, will now study English Literature at Exeter University before embarking on a career in journalism.

He added: “Thanks to the teachers at Pitsford School who have been so helpful and supported me along the way.”

Pupils and parents celebrated their A-level success at a champagne reception held in Pitsford Hall within the school’s 26 acres of parkland.

Headmaster Mr Toone said: “It was great to be able to share this day with our successful pupils, their parents and teachers.

“I wish them well as they embark on their chosen university course.”
