GSAL celebrates over 50% of A-levels awarded A*/A grades

Thursday 17 August 2023

The Class of 2023 have done incredibly well despite this being their first experience of public examinations, said Sue Woodroofe, Principal of The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL), as results were announced today (Thursday, August 17).

“Our Year 13 students were caught up in the exam disruption caused by the pandemic, and so missed the opportunity to sit their GCSEs in the normal way. Understandably, many were nervous about their A-levels – but they showed real determination and tenacity, with great support from staff and their families,” Mrs Woodroofe added.

More than 60 students (36%) at GSAL achieved top grades of three As or more, and six achieved at least three A*s.

Headline achievements included:

● 14 percent of grades were at A*
● 52 percent of grades were at A*and A
● 81 percent of grades were at A*-B

Mrs Woodroofe concluded: “I’m extremely proud of our students who, like so many of their generation, have had to contend with learning through lockdowns. These outstanding results are testimony to their resilience and hard work. They should feel incredibly proud of their achievements and excited about the next chapter in their lives.”
