Sir Joseph Williamson’s Mathematical School
A Level Results 2019
It has been another superb year for sixth formers at the Rochester Math School. The 179 Year 13 students who collected their results enjoyed considerable success, the best ever achieved.
15% of all grades awarded were at A*, up from 11% last year.
40% of all grades awarded were at A*-A grade, up by 5% from last year, while 64% of all grades secured by these senior students were at A*-B level.
The average points per subject, a measure of the typical grade per A level, is 39.9, the highest ever achieved by students at the school and equates to a B grade.
10 students gained 3 or 4 A*/A grades. Remarkably, 76 students (42% of the year group) avoided any grade lower than a B, the same proportion as last year.
A key benchmark is the proportion of students gaining at least AAB in two facilitating subjects, which this year is 24% of Year 13, also up on last year.
The Russell Group and Oxbridge university hopefuls from the school had particular cause for celebration.
The top performing students with 4 A* grades are Joseph Piekos (Mathematics, Durham) and Kieron Rushforth, (Economics, Warwick), followed by William Farrell with 3 A* and 1 A grade (Economics, LSE) and Adam Lewis also with 3 A* and 1 A (Economics, Cambridge). Sofia Viera gained 2 A* and 2 A grades (Law and French, Exeter) along with Alexander Orlov-Holmes (Oxford, Classics). Angus Robertson obtained 2 A* and 2 B grades (Computer Science, Bristol). Jonah Hyde gained 3 A* grades (Physics, Durham) as did Jordan Iga (Mathematical Physics, Edinburgh), Vanessa McLoughlin (Medicine, Oxford), Jake Sheehan (Civil Engineering, Imperial), Harris Warburton (Aeronautical Engineering, Imperial) and Simon Yip (Medicine, East Anglia). Thomas Baldock secured 2 A* and 1 A (Economics, Loughborough), along with Tsubasa Dance Matsutani (Medicine, Imperial), Cameron Easdown (Medicine, Bristol), Roli Enonuya (North Carolina, Psychology), Liam French (History, York), John Goh (English, Oxford) and Alexander Ojo (Economics, Nottingham). Ellis Coughlan gained 1 A* and 2 A grades (Politics, Warwick), along with Fred Caudwell (Physics, Durham), and Tyler Rodberg (Oxford, Engineering). Nikhil Sen secured 2A* and 1 B grade, as did David Chidume (Economics, Nottingham).
Headteacher Eliot Hodges said ‘I am delighted for all our students. They, together with their teachers, have worked really hard and it has paid off. They are a great group of young people who will now move on with confidence to the next stage in their lives’.
Chair of Governors Steve Brightman said ‘Once again the students of the Math have produced a set of results unequalled in recent years’.
