Students sat more A levels and passed them with higher grades at Hove Park School this year.

And one pupil – Daisy Snook – achieved three A* passes, ensuring she can take up her place at university.

Hove Park head Rob Reed said: “Hove Park School is thrilled that so many of our A-level students have deservedly done so well.

“Their superb accomplishments enable them to progress to their chosen higher education courses and jobs.

“This year’s results have maintained our excellent standards. It is particularly pleasing that

  • A-level students at Hove Park School make better progress than most students nationally
  • significantly more top grades have been achieved (A* to B grades increased by ten percentage points)
  • there are significantly more students achieving the government’s key benchmark of the number of students achieving grades AAB in two or more of the high status ‘facilitating’ subjects.

“Individual success stories include

  • Daisy Snook, who achieved straight A* grades in all her subjects (geography, psychology and religious studies). Daisy will study geography at the University of Nottingham.
  • Joe Farebrother, who achieved A*AA in maths, further maths and physics. Joe will study maths at the University of Oxford.

“Success has also been achieved by students who have taken a little longer and spent three years of study to achieve their A levels.

“One notable example had a student achieving B and C grades in English literature, psychology, religious studies and biology. They will now go on to a place at Sussex University.

“The huge success of our students is thanks to their hard work, the support of their families and the expertise of Hove Park staff.

“Hove Park School is also delighted that students across the city have achieved considerable success. We enjoy excellent working relationships with our partner schools and colleges.

“In particular, we are looking forward to continued collaboration with Blatchington Mill School to further improve sixth form provision in both schools.”

Some 78 pupils entered exams for 182 A levels or level 3 diplomas, with 98 per cent achieving a pass (A* to E) and 39 per cent scoring A* to B grades. The pass rate was the same a year ago but the proportion achieving A* to B grades was 30 per cent.
