It’s been a record-breaking year for Wycliffe College’s class of 2019 with the non-selective sixth form gaining its best-ever results.

An impressive 63% of students at the prestigious Stonehouse school obtained grades at A* to B.

Moreover, pupils who joined the privately-funded school over eight years previously, graduating first from Wycliffe Prep School, achieved 72% of their grades at A* to B.

Among those whose individual performances were particularly brilliant were Charlie Leach, who completed four A levels and achieved A*AAA is now off to Bristol University to start an engineering degree.

Izzy Naish from Stonehouse and Lowri Clarke of Gloucester, both excelled, earning A*AA in Arts and Humanities-based subjects, with each also securing A grades in the Extended Project Qualification.

Lowri will take up a place at York to read English Literature, while Izzy has secured her spot on the same course at Loughborough.

In STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), it was the girls who excelled.

Iona Lundie of Slimbridge scored A*AA and will study Veterinary Science at Liverpool University. Isla Green of Wotton-under-Edge and Dursley’s Maisie Spiers, each achieved AAA, and will take up places at Newcastle and Edinburgh respectively to study medicine.

Among other eye-catching performances at the highest levels was Oliver Harris, from Upper Cam, whose A*AA, will take him to study accounting and finance at Birmingham.

Head of Wycliffe College, Nick Gregory, commented “We are proud of every single member of our year 13 group for the hard work and dedication that sits behind this set of academic achievements.

"However, I am especially pleased with, and for, those boys and girls who have been at Wycliffe for many, many years; in some cases, as many as ten or eleven. The most striking statistic to be drawn from today is that of those children who joined Wycliffe at some stage during the Prep School (i.e., before the end of Year 8), almost 3/4 of their A Levels have been passed at grade A*, A or B.”
