A Level Results 2018
Moreton Hall is celebrating another stellar set of results, cementing its position as the top non-selective school in the UK.
Students worthy of individual mention include Georgina, whose four A*s enable her to take up her place at Oxford to read Computer Science and Philosophy.
Zahra moves onto Imperial College to read Chemical Engineering with three A*s and one A and Jasmine fulfils a lifetime ambition to study medicine at King’s College, London with three A*s.
Jonathan Forster, Principal of Moreton Hall paid tribute to the hard work and dedication of students and staff.
‘With a third of students achieving straight A*s and As in each of their subjects, and over 90% securing their first choice university there is much to celebrate.
However, Moreton is not an exam factory and it is important to note that some of our most successful students have made an enormous contribution to the wider life of the school. For example Lily, who takes up a place at Cambridge to read Medicine, combined her studies with captaining her country at Lacrosse.’
‘Moreton has never rested on its laurels and continues to innovate and develop to ensure that we can inspire the next generation of students and prepare them for the wider world’.
‘Our investment in Science and more specifically, our Medical Science faculty is clearly paying dividends and as work begins on the Holroyd Community Theatre, it is a clear statement of our intent to the principle of an all-round education and our role as a regional hub for learning and the Arts.’
GCSE Results 2018
Moreton Hall is once again celebrating a vintage set of GCSE results, with over half of all grades awarded the equivalent of A* and A and 98% of students achieving the English Baccalaureate (5 or more passes in core GCSE subjects).
Principal Jonathan Forster paid tribute to the hard work and staff and students who have successfully negotiated the transition to the reformed GCSE system. ‘Much has been written in the national press about the more rigorous examinations and the pressure placed on students. I firmly believe that at Moreton Hall we have a unique environment and the right balance of nurture and stretch, which is exemplified in these outstanding results’.
