Our warmest congratulations go to this year’s (2021/22) Upper Sixth Form leavers who have achieved truly exceptional A level results. At Sherborne School 28% of Upper Sixth boys were graded A*, 60% A*-A and 83% A*-B.  Given the additional challenges that they had to endure throughout their Sixth Form careers as a result of the pandemic, these achievements are all the more impressive.

Sherborne School Leavers look to start their degree courses which range from Veterinary Science, Medicine, Mathematics and Engineering to English, History and Theology. Pupils will study at top UK universities including Oxford, Cambridge, and Russell Group and prestigious overseas universities.

Just as the Upper Sixth Form had to contend with the added pressures, constraints and frustrations of the pandemic, so this year’s GCSE candidates were required to work towards their examinations against the background of considerable disruption and uncertainty.  Despite that, they have done magnificently well. 22% of their GCSEs were awarded the top grade of 9; 48% grades 9 and 8; and 67% 9 to 7 (equivalent to the old A*/A grades).

We are proud of the results achieved over the last few years, and the grades are testament to the boys and all those who taught and supported them.
