Shrewsbury celebrates record-breaking exam results

Monday 1 September 2014

Shrewsbury School is celebrating another outstanding year for A Level and Pre-U results, with 83% of the exams awarded the top A*, A or B grades.

62 pupils gained an A* or A in all their subjects and 16 students gained at least 3 A* grades.

The School’s AS results from the Lower Sixth pupils were even higher than last year’s record-breaking figures, with 73% of grades achieved at A or B grades.  43 students gained A grades in all their subjects and over 80 gained nothing less than a B.

Particular congratulations to Esmé O’Keeffe (MSH UVI) who achieved the highest mark in the country in the French Cambridge Pre-U Principal Course (equivalent to A level). Her achievement is all the more remarkable because she took the exam a year early, in the Lower Sixth, at the age of just 16. This is the second time in three years that a Salopian has achieved this distinction: Jack Flowers gained the top mark in the French Pre-U in 2012.

It has also been another excellent year for GCSE results; 65% of the exams were awarded an A* or A grade. 35 pupils (more than a quarter of those taking the exams) gained either A* or A grades in all their subjects and six pupils gained ten straight A* grades.

Please see our Examination Results page for more information and a detailed breakdown of our A Level results by subject.
