Brilliant! Badminton celebrates

Badminton School students are looking forward to the future after receiving their A-level results. With nearly half of all grades at A-A* level and a 100% pass rate, over half of all students celebrated a hattrick of A-A* grades.

Three pupils have secured Oxbridge places studying Biomedical Sciences, Psychology, and Music.

Badminton prides itself on developing students’ individual strengths, and this year’s A-level cohort are going on to study a variety of subjects, from Law to Graphic Design, Dentistry to Computer Science, Chinese to Fashion and Business & Management.

Meghna achieved four A* grades alongside her other commitments and said: “I am thrilled with my A Level results and I’m excited to be heading to Imperial to study Medical Biosciences. I have loved my time in the Sixth Form at Badminton, enjoying the fun sides of the Classics Society and my role as Head Girl, whist studying A Levels along the way!”

Julia, who is pursuing Psychological and Behavioural Sciences at Cambridge, comments: ‘My time at Badminton has provided me with solid preparation for the university application process. In addition to my A-level studies, I had a great time participating in the Psychology Club and volunteering at a local primary school.’.

Badminton School’s recently appointed Head, Jessica Miles, was delighted with the success of this year’s cohort: “For a year group who were perhaps more affected than any other by the disruption caused to their education by the pandemic, not least because they missed the experience of sitting their GCSEs, they can hold their heads high and take real pride in these results. 

“In my short time here, I have witnessed this year group’s excellent work ethic and I have also seen a group of young women who are fun, kind, brave and clearly ready to move on to the next stage of their academic journeys, whether that be studying Neuroscience at Nottingham or Civil Engineering at Imperial. I know that they would want to join me in thanking all the staff at Badminton who have supported, inspired and encouraged them during their time here.”
