Top A Level results at Chatham & Clarendon

Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School in Ramsgate

An overall A Level pass rate of 97% with a quarter of passes at A* or A grade are being celebrated by students and staff at Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School in Ramsgate.

Head teacher Debra Liddicoat said: “This year’s results at Chatham & Clarendon Grammar School showed just how well our students have worked. 24 of them have scored at least the equivalent of A grades in 3 subjects or more. Consequently, all of our students who gained offers from Oxford or Cambridge university have been awarded their places.

“Overall, a vast majority of our students have gained their place at their first choice university – which maintains the school’s premier position for places at top higher education establishments around the world.

25% of all A-levels and their equivalents were at either A* or A grade, and the overall pass rate was 97%.

“The students have made us very proud, and so many of them have exceeded expectations. It’s a real testament to our teachers and the hard work of all.”
