A Level Results 2017

Lymm High School celebrates excellent A’ level results

Students and staff at Lymm High School are celebrating, following another excellent set of A’ level results.

33% of all A’ levels were graded at A*/A, with 59% A*-B grades and 85% A*-C. The overall pass rate was over 99%.

Headteacher, Gwyn Williams said:

“We are delighted with these results. Last year’s were strong, but the headline figures this year are a good deal higher and, in fact, are the best the school has achieved since at least 2011.

“Most of the exams taken were under the new, reformed A’ level specifications, which are significantly tougher than previous years, and so to be able to post results like this is especially pleasing. Students and staff knew that they would have to work harder than ever to succeed in these new courses and I cannot praise them highly enough for their response to the challenges they faced.”

Five high flying students achieved A* grades in all of the subjects they studied: Francesca Brown, Aoife Davenport, Fan Grayson, Sarah McGrail and Victoria Ramsbottom. There were 16 students who gained at least two A* grades and a total of 26 students who gained straight A* or A grades.

Head of Sixth Form, Mrs Hayley Jennings, said:

“It is incredible to see the students getting the rewards for all their hard work over the past couple of years. The vast majority are now off to study at their first choice university, but many others have also been successful in securing high quality apprenticeships, training or jobs. They are such a great group of young people and I want to wish them all the very best as they head off to start the next chapter in their lives.”
