Despite recent gloomy warnings in the media about downward trends expected in A Level results this summer, Hurst students have once again enjoyed considerable success achieving the strongest A Level results in the College’s history.

Overall, just under half of all grades were A*/ A and the vast majority of students are going on to their choice of university, including Oxford, Cambridge and other prestigious universities such as Bristol, Durham, Edinburgh, Exeter, London (Imperial, KCL and UCL), Manchester, Newcastle and Southampton.

Headmaster Tim Manly commented, “There has been a real sense of purpose about this year’s Upper Sixth and their hard work has been rewarded with some excellent results. I am particularly delighted for those seeking to study Medicine or Veterinary Medicine, all of whom have met their offers. Most of the year group have gained places at their choice of university and their final year at Hurst will have prepared them well for their undergraduate studies. It is a tribute to their ‘Hurst’ spirit, that alongside their academic work, so many have contributed so much to the life of the College during their time here, whether in the creative arts, on the sports field or in our wider community. They have been a truly delightful group and we will miss them but wish them well for the future.”
