The students of Godolphin have been rewarded with a truly outstanding set of A-Level results for 2022.

Overall, 70% of the A-Level grades were at A and A* and included a 100% pass rate. 64% of students got one or more A* and 85% achieved at least one A or A* grade. The cohort achieved 37% A* grades – an extraordinary result. As we go to press today, 95% of girls secured their first-choice university place. Godolphin’s post A-level applicants achieved 100% success.

An outstanding run of 5 A* grades was achieved by Jessica Horsfield, including an Extended Project Qualification on Cosmology. 6 students gained 3 or more A* grades, including Lilibet Blythe, Olivia Jones, Honour Norman, Annabel O’Reilly and Jemima Price.

Students from Godolphin will begin their further education in a range of top universities including Oxford (Jemima to study Music), Cambridge (Lilibet to study Classics, Durham (Jessica to study Physics and Honour Business and Management. Annabel will take up a Product Design & Development Engineer degree apprenticeship at the Dyson Institute of Engineering of Technology.

Godolphin will also contribute to the ranks of Medical and Veterinary students with Madeleine Coupe and Frankie Roberts respective taking on those challenges.

In addition to a string of high grades, it has also been a year in which hard work and dedication could overcome a range of challenges, and the progress made by some students clearly demonstrates that. Jemima Bentley, Charlotte Reeve, Shan Xue, Grace Thompson, Lexie O’Gorman, Nell Pugh and Alice Tregoning have all produced excellent results.

Godolphin Head, Emma Hattersley said,

We're over the moon to be celebrating these record A-Level results. I am so incredibly proud of all our A-level students who have been excellently rewarded with an outstanding set of results, against a backdrop of uncertainty. Their immense hard work and resilience has really paid off.

We are particularly pleased with the range of subjects where A and A* grades have been awarded, encompassing the curriculum from Classics, to STEM, and Languages to Humanities. It is essential to recognise the hard work, dedication and expertise of the Godolphin staff who have helped the students to deliver these fantastic results. Congratulations to everyone.”
