Success for Priory School A Level ‘scholars’

For a second year, ‘Scholars’ at Priory School’s Sixth Form do well in their A Levels.

Priory School

Many thanks to Priory School Principal, Edmund Matyjaszek, for this update on A Level results for his pupils. Ed

2013 sees the second year of full A-level results in Priory School’s Sixth Form. Over the last two years Sixth Formers, or ‘Scholars’ as they are termed, have achieved full A Levels in the following subjects:

  • English
  • Maths
  • History
  • Business Studies
  • Biology
  • ICT
  • Art
  • Photography
  • Graphics

All were passed and scholar Felicity Bates excelled herself:

  • Biology A*
  • History A
  • English A*
  • Maths A

Felicity has now achieved a clean sweep of A*/A in all her A Level subjects and hopes to study at Warwick University, a member of the Russell Group of universities, generally regarded as the premier Universities in the UK.

Congratulations to all scholars
Congratulations are due to her and to other Scholars and to the tutors who now are now establishing an enviable track record of academic success at A Level.

In 2013-14 Priory School adds Religious Studies (RS) to its list of offered subjects at A Level.

  1. This is an odd story. The County Press reported that only two students took A Levels at Priory School this year. One of them has clearly done well and got a place at university. What happened with the other one is unclear. Priory School is not unique in this. I find this kind of manipulation of information by Island schools unhelpful in understanding how much progress has really been made and how far there is to go. It would be more helpful to know the percentage of students gaining A-C grades than A-E. We need to know the reality of the progress being made. After all, it’s unlikely that so many schools in special measures are acing the A Level results.

  2. I agree with d’s comments. The student has done well despite her mother. The island is a small place.
