Trinity School students hard work was rewarded as the vast majority were able to move to their chosen universities and colleges to continue their studies.
Whitgift School’s International Baccalaureate (IB) students achieved an average score of 39 points out of 45; matching the same average achieved over the last 3 years. Over half of students achieved 40+ points, a feat typically achieved by only the top 10% of students worldwide and Whitgift also achieved great A-level results with 75% of students at A or A* and well over 90% awarded A* – B.
Speaking of the successful exams results of the foundation schools, Martin Cormey Chief Executive of John Whitgift Foundation said: “Despite the unprecedented challenges the education sector is facing due to the pandemic, we are immensely proud of our students’ A-Level achievements at Old Palace of John Whitgift, Trinity and Whitgift Schools.
