Whilst across the UK top grades are down Bedford Modern School students are once again celebrating consistently high A Level results with an impressive 52% achieving A* - A and a fantastic 96% obtaining A*- C. Nearly one third of all the students who sat their A Levels this year obtained three A grades or better.
Sam Butler received the highest grades in the School with four A*s in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry and an A* grade in his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).
He will now go on to study Mathematics at the University of Cambridge along with five other BMS students who have successfully secured places at either Oxford or Cambridge.
Sam said: “I had some idea of how well I had done this morning when I learned that I had been accepted at my chosen university. I’m incredibly happy and would not have been able to have achieved these grades were it not for the support I received at BMS.”
Top performing female student Kiana Mostaghimi has secured a highly sought after place to study Medicine at the University of Southampton after obtaining A*s in Biology, French and Maths and an A in Chemistry. She also achieved an A* in her EPQ.
As well as her academic achievements Kiana has made an outstanding contribution to the life of the school, working tirelessly on charity projects and being a positive role model for younger students.
Bedford Modern School Headmaster, Michael Hall, said: “Our students have once again done themselves proud. Despite concerns about grade variability nationally, our students continue to achieve consistently year on year with an impressive 52% of all grades at A* or A and 96% at A*-C.
“I am always delighted that those who go on to university often choose vocationally specific subjects securing them every best chance of success in the future. To have 11 students secure highly competitive places to study medicine, dentistry or veterinary science is tremendous.”
