BVGS celebrates the ‘A’ level Class of 2019
Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School is celebrating the ‘A’ level successes of the Class of 2019 with 76.1% of entries being graded A*-B.
The Upper Sixth student leaders, School Captains, Shoaib Sheraz and Lucy Windsor, led from the front, attaining top grades. They are both going on to study Medicine at university.
In total, 7 students secured their places at Ivy League or Oxbridge universities with top marks. This is no mean feat when you are competing against an international field. Well done to:
Harry Ayto: Maths (Princeton), Joel Smith: Engineering (Oxford), Nina Adriano: Engineering (Selwyn, Cambridge), Zachary Farmer: Spanish & Arabic Studies (Pembroke, Cambridge), Emily Hyde: History (Kings, Cambridge), Leo Karski: Economics (Kings, Cambridge), Josh Martin: English (Homerton, Cambridge).
A further 4 students have been invited by Cambridge University to apply for an adjustment offer on the basis of their exceptional academic performance: Molly Castagna (Medicine), Yannis Lakhani da Silva (Medicine), Liam Matthews (Economics), Maria Taiwo (Medicine). We await with interest to see how this progresses.
There were also 11 students in total, who attained a stunning 3 or more A* grades, including Joseph Bentley ***, Eliza Gregory *** (Economics, Manchester), Robin Maes Prior *** (UCL, Civil Engineering) and Joseph Edwards **** (St Andrew’s, Mathematics) , Kieran Thiarya **** (KCL, Dentistry) and Deputy School Captain, Archie Sansome **** (Bristol, Aerospace Engineering).
Dominic Robson, Headteacher, was delighted, “This year group are an amiable and good-spirited cohort of young people. They have excelled in the classroom. As well-rounded young people, they have made the most of the opportunities the ‘Vesey Experience’ has provided them. Amongst this cohort, we have many outstanding musicians, actors and sportswomen and sportsmen. We have flawless and confident public speakers. They have enjoyed trips far and wide, with some of the Upper 6th going on the recent rugby tour to Japan. Above all, they are a group of emotionally smart and talented young people and we wish them the very best for the future. I am very proud of them all.”
“Education is a team sport. A huge thank you to our amazing parents and committed staff for their generous commitment to our young people. I must also thank my brilliant Governing Body, led by Mrs Joanna Davis, who readily give up so much time voluntarily to help us in our drive to do the very best for all the children in our care.”
