We are delighted with the excellent provisional results achieved by our students once again this year.
In the Upper Sixth (Year 13) of 97 pupils, 41% of the results gained were at A*/A with 23 pupils gaining 3 A grades or higher and over two thirds of all grades were between A* and B. The A Level pass rate was 99%.
Many pupils have gained impressive results and places at top universities including Natalie Cotton who gained five A* grades to study Natural Sciences at Newnham, Cambridge and Eleanor Ansell who will join her there after achieving three A* grades to read Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Homerton College. Euan Friend, Christopher Hamilton and David Yung all gained at least 3 A* grades and Emily Combe, Ang Gao, Elizabeth Morris, Bethany Squires and Edward Taylor achieved A*, A*, A or better in their results. There has been a very high rate of acceptance for Blundell’s students into their first choice of university; other popular destinations include Bath, Edinburgh, Nottingham and Manchester, while post A Level applicant Silvia Mills goes to St Hugh’s College, Oxford to read Philosophy and Linguistics.
The Head Nicola Huggett said ‘Once again I extend my warm and sincere congratulations to all our pupils in another year of excellent achievement. We are all so proud of them as they have worked extremely hard to achieve these results. These are all the more impressive as they continued to be involved in school life alongside their academic studies, such as taking part in sport and musical commitments throughout their final year. In addition to those going to university next month, several of our Upper Sixth have some interesting and prestigious opportunities in the work place lined up, including an apprenticeship with Jaguar Land Rover and a gap year working with Ove Arup.’
We are very proud of the following outstanding pupils who gained at least 3 A grades or better:
Benjamin Ames, Eleanor Ansell, Luke Brades-Payne, Emily Combe, Natalie Cotton, Imogen Dickinson, Arthur Friend, Euan Friend, Ang Gao, Christopher Hamilton, Jessica Harvie, Oliver Mitchell, Jennifer Mettam, Elizabeth Morris, Jack Muirhead, William Scott, Cameron Seymour, Bethany Squires, Katy Stevens, Benedict Summers, Edward Taylor, Tabitha Unsworth-White, David Yung.

We are pleased to announce that Blundell’s students have achieved another excellent set of provisional GCSE results.
More than a quarter of grades were A*, a position that equals the School's best ever results of last year. From a large and able group of pupils, once again more than half the grades were at A*/A Level and, in an improvement on last year, more than a third of the year group (31 pupils) gained at least eight A* and A grades. The pass rate was again well over 95%. The following pupils gained nine or more A*s: Imogen Cotton, Alfie Gardner, Megan Grant, Julia Huntingford, Will McIntyre, Bonnie Price, Kieran Smith and Samantha Unsworth-White. The top performing student, with an outstanding 12 A* grades, was Harry Olive.
The Head, Nicola Huggett said "I am truly delighted with this set of GCSE results which are a fitting reward for a terrific group of young people who know the value of hard work. The results demonstrate very clearly the excellent teaching and outstanding pastoral support that is in place to help every pupil achieve their full potential here at Blundell's. In the end, however, it is up to the pupils and I am very proud indeed of all they have achieved. There is no doubt that we focus on our academic dimension, as we should, but our pupils are involved in so many other areas too. Musically, on the sports field and in the arts they achieve at an equally high level and they richly deserve the exciting future that now lies ahead for them."
