Seaford College’s pupils celebrate their personal bests with an increased number of A* grades achieved despite an undoubted national increase in academic rigour, and with the highest percentage ever in the College’s recent history achieving their first choice university places.
Pupils in Business Studies achieved 90% A*-B grades, and in English Literature 80% A*-B. Seaford’s new Creative Writing course also achieved 80% A*-B, with Hudson Greig (from Guildford) achieving an A* grade on top of having also won first prize at the Brighton Arts Festival Peacock Poetry Prize earlier in the summer. Other notable successes include Emma Brown, Head Girl (from Coates), who secured an A* in Psychology, and A grades in Maths and Physics, and goes on to read psychology at Bath University. Alex Hodson (from Arundel) achieved four A grades in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics and will read medicine at Edinburgh University, and Lydia Ellwand (from Fittleworth) also achieved three A* grades in English Literature, Creative Writing and Graphic Design, and joins Falmouth University in September.
This year’s results, considering the proud inclusive and non-selective ethos of Seaford, show that Seaford pupils are rising to the challenge and fulfilling their academic potential, on top of their other notable successes achieved over the course of the year in fields including Music, Drama and Sport.
Headmaster John Green said: “Our pupils are increasingly ambitious in all aspects of their education, and we are immensely proud of all aspects of their achievements across our diverse curriculum. Seaford remains a proud, inclusive and non-selective school, and the results this year demonstrate the undoubted strengthening of the academic core at the school.”
Seaford offers a unique environment and inspiring personal ambition & success is part of its DNA.
