A Level Results Summer 2018

The pass rate at King David was 100% for both A level and BTEC courses and it is our great pleasure to announce, that once again, most students got into their first-choice university. There are also many impressive individual achievements.  Kara D’Arcy gained A*A*A and will take her place at the University of Oxford (Hartford College) to read Biochemistry.  Jack Aspinall, with AAAB, will study Mathematics and Cian McGrath (AAA) has a place to study Microbiology at the University of Leeds.  Lily Bichard-Collins not only achieved A*AAC in her A levels, but also produced an outstanding EPQ on the “Influence of Yiddish on the Liverpool Jewish lexicon today”.  She was awarded an A* grade for this compelling piece of research and plans to read English Language and Sociology at the University of Sheffield.  

Josh Ewell achieved A*AB and will read History at King’s College London. Rosine Mabata, who came to Liverpool from the Central African Republic in 2015 achieved A*AB at A level and is looking forward to taking up her place to read Civil and Structural Engineering at the University of Leeds.  Patrik Atkinson also performed at the highest level achieved an A in A Level Mathematics and Distinction*Distinction in Business Studies.  He will now take up his place at the University of Manchester to study Mathematics and Statistics.

  

Ethan Molloy, Rakesh Singh, Emily Ablett, Phoebe Ablett, Emily Moore, Megan Sargeant, Karisma Kapur, Sam Murray, Bethany Connolly, George Fidler, Annie Sweeney Joe Legdon and Zac Clein also obtained excellent grades allowing them to access degree courses ranging from Biology to Chemistry to Dentistry to Economics.

Well done also to Emilia Alis, Max Benmayor, Josh Blumenow, Phoebe Lee, Roisin Fay, Jason Blank, Holly Brent, Alex Chen, Robert Forde, Kiran Goenka, Ed Hall, Kiran Goenka, Will Kelly, Sam Lee-Croll, Rebecca Liu, James McDermott, Jamie Molloy, Lauren Donnelly, Hannah Rigby and Oliver Thompson who were some of those awarded places at their first choice universities to study subjects ranging from Speech and Language Therapy to Linguistics to Computer Science. Other courses our students will be pursuing at university this year include Mechanical Engineering, Interior Design and Psychology (to name but a few!).  Additionally, Joe Daulby has been offered a Sport Scholarship at the Union College of Kentucky.  Some students have also opted to take apprenticeship pathways, allowing them to earn while the learn so I wish them good luck in with their chosen companies.

I must also say well done to students who took a gap year last year, but in that time choose to re-sit one of their A levels.  The students who opted for this pathways all achieved A and B grades and spending an extra year studying has better prepared them for the rigours of university.

 

Our Y13 Leavers have been a great year group who have received just rewards for their mature approach, hard work and efforts which has been well supported by parents and the dedicated staff at school.  During their time at King David the students have not only developed academically, but also personally, as individuals.  Our students have contributed a great deal to the life of the school and local community, demonstrating great initiative, teamwork and leadership skills.  We would like to take this opportunity to wish them all every success for the future. We really will miss them all greatly.
