Medicine, Maths and the best universities after an impressive set of results at Ashford School

Medicine, Maths and the best universities after an impressive set of results at Ashford School

There are celebrations at Ashford School after nearly half of all students achieved the grades needed for entry into the elite universities.

Results day has already confirmed a place to study Maths at Cambridge University for Sam Zhang after he achieved four A*s and an A grade. His fellow student Toby Clifton is also taking up a place at Cambridge University with four A* grades under his belt. He will be studying Natural Sciences.

Nearly a quarter of all students achieved at least three A*/A grades with 40% achieving at least two A*/A grades after two years of dedicated work. Three quarters of students were celebrating at least one A*.

Head Mike Buchanan said: “This is another set of impressive results for our students who come from varied academic backgrounds. The results are testament to their hard work and attitude – but also to the ability of our teachers to draw out the very best from our students.”

Lizzy Aviss, a keen violinist who is off to study Medicine at St George’s University of London, said: “I am absolutely over the moon. It was hard work but it paid off.” Congratulations are also in order for Euan Nicholls who, despite competing at national level on the cross-country field, is taking up a place at Keele to study Medicine after achieving A*, A*, A.

Students at Ashford School are also encouraged to study for EPQs – an Extended Project Qualification. These projects – which can be a 5000 word essay or a product and a 1000 word report – are highly regarded by the best universities as evidence of students learning independence and research skills.

This year six students undertook EPQs: results saw five A*s and one A.
