Oxbridge Success Results 2018 Art and Design at Woodhouse Physics at Woodhouse

Woodhouse students harvest bumper crop of A level high grades

Dated: 17 August 2018

 
 
Students and staff at Woodhouse College were jubilant this week as A level results were released nationally. Already the highest achieving sixth form college in London and top three nationally, we clocked up our best results in a decade this year.
 
Principal John Rubinstein said “These results are our second highest ever at Woodhouse and are a huge credit to the enormous hard work put in by everyone right across the Woodhouse community. In a year when grades are slightly down nationally, our students have bucked the trend.”
 
The Key Statistics
 
A level high grades 70% (A*– B, the grades required by top universities like the Russell Group)
 
101 students got three or more A or A* grades. 16 students got three or more A* grades.

I find it supportive that Mr Rubinstein reminds us that no matter how you do with exams, your future is not determined entirely by your grades.”
