Celebrating another year of outstanding A-level results at Sutton High School

Pupils at Sutton High School are celebrating a fantastic set of A-Level results, with over half of grades at A* and A for the third year running.

The results mean that girls will be taking up places on prestigious higher education courses all around the country, forging their own paths in a wide range of directions, having chosen a diverse range of courses that reflect their talents and passions. 80% of pupils are headed to their first choice university.

Straight A* students Ellie Suri and Lucy Sabin will be going on to Kingston University and the University of York respectively, with Lucy reading Chemistry and Ellie undertaking a prestigious Art Foundation course.

Following the amazing work of the NHS over the course of the pandemic, several pupils have been inspired to pursue medical careers. Shambavi Chandrakumar will read Medicine at Queen’s University, Belfast, Jenny Sallabank at Nottingham, Hana Rahman at Leicester and Amy Yun relocating to study in China.

STEM subjects remain popular, with design and engineering at the fore. Pupils have gained places for Mechanical Engineering, Aero-Mechanical Engineering, Interior Design, Product Design and Furniture Design. With 100% A*-B grades in Design Technology, our girls are well-equipped to design the future.

Beth Dawson, Head, commented,

“I am very proud of all our staff and students. We produce excellent results year after year, but the aim is always to ensure that each individual girl can realise her unique and individual goals and is able to play to her strengths.”

She added, “Our students are exceptionally well-prepared for the next step in their academic journey, not least through our award-winning careers service, which offers one-to-one UCAS support from application to acceptance. We also run a highly successful Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) programme, which gives girls the intellectual freedom to choose their own topic and enables them to experience university-style research for themselves. This year, two-thirds of our EPQ grades were A*-A.

“I wish all our girls the very best for the bright futures they have ahead of them. We hope they will come back to visit and share their achievements with us.”
