Academic Results

The fact that more than two thirds of boys achieved at least one A grade or higher at A level, and 22 secured straight A* and A grades, demonstrates both the ability of our boys and Sherborne’s continued academic strength.  It is also a reflection of the fact that boys at Sherborne achieve among the best value added scores in the country.  As a consequence of these results,  the vast majority of boys secured places at their first choice university with destinations including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Nottingham, Leeds, Imperial, LSE, Warwick, KCL, Bath, St Andrews, Edinburgh, Bristol, Exeter, Loughborough and Southampton.   Their degree subjects range from Architecture to Zoology and Medicine to Music.


At GCSE, the results were also excellent.  More than a fifth of our boys achieved straight A*- A and 9, 8 & 7s.  A striking feature of the results was the number of grade 9s that the boys achieved.  This new top grade is equivalent to the upper end of the old A* band and was awarded to only 4.3% of papers nationally.  Among Sherborne’s reformed GCSE results, the grade 9 percentage was 13.8%.  It is particularly remarkable that in Mathematics we scored 26.8% at grade 9 (compared to 3.6% in that subject nationally).   

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.
