Kimbolton School students, families and staff are celebrating an excellent year with some stellar A-level performances.

16.4 per cent of the results were at the top A* grade and 44 per cent were at A* or A. More than 65 per cent of the grades were at A* to B.

Twenty-five students, a quarter of the year group, gained at least three A*/As, with all four students with Oxbridge offers confirming their places.

Leading the way at A-level were Rebecca Heath and Clifford Robinson who both achieved four A* grades.

Rebecca will be reading Economics at Kings College, Cambridge, while Clifford will also be moving to Cambridge, to study Natural Sciences at Peterhouse College.

Both Anthony Gray and Edward Salkield gained three A*s and one A grade.

Other top performers included Emily Choy Winters, Matthew Greenland, Harry Knowlton, Michael Oakley and Sasha Semple from Stanwick who all achieved two A*s and one A.

A further 20 students gained at least one A*.

Headmaster Jonathan Belbin said: “Our curriculum focuses on the so-called ‘hard’ subjects that are attractive to top universities, but we also measure success in many less quantifiable ways.

“Our students have developed countless skills and undertaken experiences here at school that will equip them for life both inside and outside the university lecture theatre.”
