This year’s A-level results were great news for Seaford College – and especially for one student! A-level results at Seaford College, near Petworth, once again showed an improvement on previous years – with one student attaining the equivalent of 8A grade A-levels.
The College notched up a 100% pass rate and an average of 320.5 points per candidate, just a slight increase on last year. However, the number of A* and A grades were up by 3% to 33%, while 53% of the results were graded A* A or B.
The College’s most outstanding student was Christina Gladkova who attained 5A* grades, 1A and a distinction in her Cambridge Pre-U examination, giving her a total of 965 UCAS points. (960 is the equivalent of 8A grades).
A delighted Christina, from the Czech Republic, has been offered a place at Trinity College, Cambridge, to read Natural Sciences. Head Boy Rupert Barnard, who lived until recently in Billingshurst and who obtained 3As, was among other top achievers, along with Gabriella Bird, from Haslemere (1A* 2As), Bernadette Palombo from Bury, near Haslemere, (1A* and 2As), Julian Ng from Hong Kong (5As and a distinction in the Cambridge Pre-U) and Rona Karahoda from Kosovo (2A* 1A and two Cambridge Pre-U exams with merit).
Seaford College, which is a non-selective school and admits a high percentage of students with dyslexia or other learning support needs, was recently identified by the Government as one of the top 25 most improved schools in the UK for its A-level results.
Headmaster Toby Mullins said: “I am delighted that this year’s results show a continued upward trend, given that we strive to improve our academic results year upon year. We had some exceptional students this year and are delighted that the results show they were able to attain their full potential here at Seaford College.”
