A Level results: Eastbourne College students ‘rose to the challenge’


Eastbourne College girls and boys are celebrating another superb set of A Level and AS Level results this morning (August 13), with one student walking away with a very impressive four A* grades.

Overall, 78 percent of all grades were A*, A or B and almost half of the grades awarded were A* or A grades.



Head master Simon Davies said: “We are delighted that headline figures confirm, once again, how Eastbourne College pupils, year after year, achieve results of which they and their families can be very proud.

“The college serves to bring the very best out of each individual; ensuring that every young woman or young man performs to their best versus our realistic, high expectations of them.

“What also matters is that we all remember that education is about so much more than exam grades and all the while public exams were in session, right to the end of the summer term, there were full programmes of creative arts, meaningful charitable activity and high-level sport including extremely successful cricket, tennis and athletics seasons.

“In the summer A Level examinations superb individual performances smashed national averages including, among others: Kajal Radia with four A* grades; Laurence Cox, Claudia Mercer and Shan Zhang with three A* and one A grade and Florence Hole and Jessica Porter, both achieving three straight A* grades.

“Pia Unutzer achieved an impressive two A* and two A grades. Equally impressive were Bella Bearcroft, Lotte Carter, Ben Foster, Sami Ghani, Harry Piper, Joe Scott and Rafe Sulke, all of whom secured two A* and one A grade.

“There were many, many other notable performances.”

At AS level, the lower sixth also performed extremely well, positioning them for a successful final year at the college.

Mr Davies said: “We are absolutely delighted with how this year’s sixth formers have risen to the challenge of their AS and A Level examinations and really pleased for all those who have done so very well.

“These results are a real tribute to the hard work of the pupils and teaching staff of Eastbourne College.

“We celebrate their outstanding individual and collective success both in and beyond the classroom.”
