Woodhouse students harvest bumper crop of A level high grades

Dated: 17 August 2018

Students and staff at Woodhouse College were jubilant this week as A level results were released nationally. Already the highest achieving sixth form college in London and top three nationally, we clocked up our best results in a decade this year.
Principal John Rubinstein said “These results are our second highest ever at Woodhouse and are a huge credit to the enormous hard work put in by everyone right across the Woodhouse community. In a year when grades are slightly down nationally, our students have bucked the trend.”
The Key Statistics
A level high grades 70% (A*– B, the grades required by top universities like the Russell Group)
101 students got three or more A or A* grades. 16 students got three or more A* grades.
At least 15 students will be going to an Oxbridge University.
An overall pass rate of 99.7% from 1993 exam entries (677 students).
29 confirmed Medicine offers 
Highest achieving sixth form college in London and top three nationally.
Callum Helcke got 3 A*s

“I loved my time at Woodhouse and truly believe my grades are as much my teachers’ as they are my mine. I’m taking a year out to explore the other side of my life (dance) but I’ll most likely be back in chemistry labs in September 2019. I find it supportive that Mr Rubinstein reminds us that no matter how you do with exams, your future is not determined entirely by your grades.”
