Ashbourne students defy the downward national trend in top A-Level grades

In 2016, Ashbourne’s students achieved 51% A*/A grades in their A-Level exams, a rise of 4% from last year. This contradicted the downward national trend in A-Level grades. Across the country the proportion of A-Level grades achieved in independent schools that were A* or A was 48.7%, down from 49.3% last year, still far above the national average of 25.8%. Set against the tougher standards set by the A-Level exam boards, Ashbourne’s A-Level results are all the more remarkable.

We are very proud of our students’ achievement and acknowledge the primary importance of their effort. Without their ambition, determination and hard work our college would not be as successful as it is. We believe that our students also benefit from these key factors:

  • Our students have high expectations, which are encouraged and nurtured by some very talented teachers.
  • Personal and UCAS Tutors spend much of their time with students individually, to monitor their progress constantly throughout the year and to ensure a really confident university application.
  • Small classes promote engagement, which is further enhanced by extending the normal teaching time.
  • There is competition for places in our upper sixth form; students must reach at least C grade standard at AS before proceeding to the second year of A Level. Morale is boosted because the students share similar ambitions and goals.
  • Preparation for exams is a priority. Constant regular testing provides a vital benchmark for all.
  • Personal Tutors insist on the highest standards in behaviour and academic discipline.
  • The College has an informal atmosphere, helping students to develop a sense of independence and responsibility so that they can flourish when they arrive at university.
  • Student happiness is paramount; it is rare to find an unhappy student at Ashbourne.

Nhi is one of the most dedicated students it has been our pleasure to teach.Such a wide range is remarkable in itself but in Nhi’s case even more so when one considers that English is not her first language. Such breadth also indicates a mind which has freed itself from the often bland, formulaic, and narrow approach to education found in developing countries. It is heartening to think that her development has benefited from the liberal critical culture which is a hallmark of education in the UK. A spectacular achievement.
