Record Number of Top Grades for the Class of 2019

Best ever results at A*/7, with nearly 20% of the year group achieving either A*A*A* or 777 at Higher Level IB.

It has been another record-breaking year for our Upper Sixth leavers at Wellington. At the start of the summer, we celebrated our best ever IB results, with this year’s cohort achieving an incredible 40.2 average, more than 11 points above the global average.  With the release of A Level results, the full picture has emerged, and it is an impressive one.

Wellingtonians have achieved a record number of top grades, with 35% at A*/7 and almost 20% of the year group achieving either A*A*A* at A Level or 777 at Higher Level IB.

9 students achieved the maximum 45 points at IB, 62% achieved more than 40 points and 74% achieved 38+. At A Level, 10 students achieved straight A*s; across the cohort 23.6% of grades awarded were A*, 57% were A*/A and 85% were A*-B.

Deputy Head, Academic, Matt Oakman commented: “I am thrilled for all our leavers, who have performed so magnificently this year. They have thrived and flourished studying their IB and A Level courses and will now go on to a broad range of leading institutions well equipped as independent learners to excel in the next stage of their lives. We wish them all the very best and could not be prouder of their achievements”.

Julian Thomas said, “Congratulations to the class of 2019 on these outstanding results. Not only have these students secured a record number of top grades, but they have contributed so much to the wider life of the College. This year group excelled in the arts, in sport, and they exhibited superb leadership, both within the College and in their generous contributions to the local community. They will be a tough act to follow. Well done to them all!”

This talented cohort will now head off to a range of leading UK, US and international universities, including Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, Bristol, LSE, Imperial, Yale, Duke, Chicago and NYU, to name but a few.

Congratulations and good luck to the class of 2019.
