A Level Exam Results

Ashbourne students consistently achieve outstanding exam results helping us to remain one of the best A level colleges in London for many years.

A level success

Ashbourne students consistently achieve excellent A level results, 66% A*A in 2021, and over the last ten years they have attained an average of 47% A*A, far exceeding the national average.

We are very proud of our students’ achievement and acknowledge the primary importance of their effort. Without their ambition, determination and hard work, and the dedication and expertise of our teachers and staff, the college would not be as successful as it is.

Excellent performance improvement

Ashbourne is placed in the top 5% of UK schools and colleges that offer A levels as a result of the level of performance improvement each student achieves, or ‘value added’. We have also remained one of the very best private sixth form colleges in London for many years.

“Pupils respect their teachers. They enjoy professional relationships. Staff have high aspirations for all pupils. In return, pupils are ambitious and driven to achieve the best possible results.” Outstanding, Ofsted Report 2021

Best sixth form college in London

Ashbourne students’ outstanding A level results have helped us to remain one of the very best private sixth form colleges in London for many years.
