Top 100 celebrate ABB or above

Thursday 16 August 2018


One hundred students at The Grammar School at Leeds (GSAL) achieved ABB or above, the coveted grades required by leading universities. Of these students, 54 picked up the top grades of A*/A with 15 scooping all A*s today (Thursday August 16).

Three of the 15 who swept the board with the top grade, achieved four A*s and a further 12 achieved three A*s.

Some 52% of the GSAL cohort, who are among the first to take the reformed A-level courses, achieved a minimum of ABB grades.

  • 18% were passes at A*
  • 49% of grades at A*and A
  • 75% of grades at A*-B

Principal Sue Woodroofe said: “After the press coverage about the more rigorous reformed A-levels I’m delighted that almost half of our grades were at A*/A and three-quarters of grades were A*-B.

“Our students have achieved a superb set of results and their dedication and diligence has been impressive. These results are the culmination of years of commitment by staff and students alike, well supported by their families too. They leave the school well placed for the next chapter of their lives and we are very proud of them.”
