Outstanding A Level Results for our Class of 2022

18 August 2022

We are immensely proud of our A Level students’ achievements and are delighted to celebrate the results of their public examinations today. Every one of our students showed great determination and resilience as they approached the first set of public examinations they had taken, and they can now look to the future with confidence and optimism.

The hard work and effort of the girls over the last two years, along with the support of their teachers, tutors, pastoral teams and their families, has resulted in a wonderful set of results for all; 74% of the A Levels taken by our students were graded A*-A and 91% were graded A*-B.

Fifteen girls leave Downe House having achieved 3 or more A* grades, which is an outstanding achievement; Amelia A (3 A*), Lucy (3 A*), Danna (3 A*), Louisa G (3 A*), Madhulika (3 A*), Sophie L (4 A*), Antonia (4 A*), Rosie (3 A*), Alice (4 A* and 1 A), Mathilda (4 A*), Angela (4 A*), Sunnie (4 A*), Poppy (3 A*), Phoebe (3 A*) and Queena (4 A*).

Our leavers are heading off to study a diverse and impressive range of courses both here in the UK and abroad, at some of the world’s most prestigious universities and establishments. Antonia is one of seven students who are heading to Oxford or Cambridge. She earned four A*s and is thrilled to be able to study Music at Oxford, alongside her peers studying subjects ranging from Linguistics and English to Chemistry, Physics and Archaeology. Another four girls, Madhulika, Phoebe, Amelia and Poppy, are all set to study medicine.

I could not be more proud of our results this year. To see the pupils achieving such outstanding results (38% of the grades being at A* level and 74% at A* and A) is a great source of pride and a reflection of their consistent application, determination and ability as well as the excellent support that they received from their teachers and their families. However, I am most proud of the young people that they are and the contribution I know that they will make to their future universities and life beyond Downe House.

-Mrs Emma McKendrick, Headmistress

The Class of 2022 is an exceptional group of young women who have contributed greatly to School life throughout their time here. All are to be congratulated for embracing opportunities for their personal development and for giving back to the School community through their roles as leaders on School Council, as Seniors, Ambassadors and Champions, as well for working so hard to reach their potential academically. They have set a superb example for pupils lower down the School and we have watched with pride as they have grown into confident and skilled young women, well-prepared for their future studies and careers.
