18 August 2016Dixie Grammar School A Level Results 2016This has been a fantastic year for the Dixie and our A level students are celebrating another set of most impressive exam results. A record-breaking 34% of the A Levels awarded to our students are at the coveted A* and A grades and the young men and women leaving the Dixie do so assured of a very bright future ahead.
A Level Results
There is not space to list all the details of those who secured straight A and A* grades, but special mention should be made of Edward Platts, who will now read Chinese at The Queen’s College, Oxford; Richard Wilkinson with two A* and two A grades, who will be reading Law at Birmingham; and Adam McGrath, this year’s Head Boy, with two A* grades and one A grade, who now heads to Imperial College to read Chemistry. Nikita Sall, Jimmy Webster and Liban Warsame also achieved a clean sweep of top grades. Mention should additionally be made of Amy Hemsworth who, at the age of 15, has received grade A in her English Language A level.
These results reflect a great deal of hard work by both our talented young adults and our dedicated teachers. However, it is not always the highest grades that represent the greatest achievement and we are proud of the very many students who have met or exceeded their own expectations. Examination results alone fail to take account of the personal qualities, employability and leadership skills on which we place such emphasis at Dixie and which our Upper Sixth students have in abundance. We do not just measure our success by the academic, or even by our recent outstanding inspection report – all those who have taught the impressive young men and women who now join our Alumni feel a real sense of pride in both their achievements and their dedication.
