St Lawrence College A Level Results 2017
St Lawrence College is again celebrating an increase in top A Level grades, following on from last year’s success, with30% of all grades at A*/A. Amongst the top grades were Stephen Dolan, who with four A* grades is off to Oxford University to study Engineering, and Hajin Dho, who with A*A*A grades will be studying Medicine. Local girl Krissy Boon will be taking up a place at Sussex studying Medical Neuroscience after securing A*A*A grades, and Lexie Dahms achieved the rare distinction of an A* in both French and Spanish, and will be studying Modern Languages at Durham. Last year’s Head of School, Flora Liu, will take up her place at King’s College, London, after gaining five A Levels, including one in Japanese that she took for fun!
Principal Antony Spencer commented, “These great results are the culmination of years of hard work by pupils and staff and, as well as the excellent results by the most able, I applaud the achievements of all those getting their results today.
We have pupils with a range of ability but 77% gained at least one A*-B grade, giving them greater choice when it comes to the next stage of their studies. At St Lawrence we follow traditional, academic A Levels as the best route into top universities, and our STEM results were of particular note; a remarkable 63% of Chemistry grades were A*/A and 63% of Maths grades were A*-B. Such results validate the investment we are making into these areas, as we complete the building of our new £5 Million Science, Design and Art building.”
