University Destinations and Exam Results

We were delighted with the examination results achieved in 2022, and thrilled with the fantastic range of leading universities at which the graduating class are now studying.

As A level pupils returned to the exam hall following last year’s teacher-assessed grades, all schools had been informed that this year’s grade boundaries would be more challenging than in 2020 and 2021. Nevertheless, our students managed to achieve 67% A*-A grades, with 98% of grades being A*-C. This is particularly impressive when compared with the 58% of A*-A grades achieved at private schools in England this year.

In addition, 74% of our pupils gained A*-A grades at IGCSE. Once again, this is an excellent achievement when compared with the 53% of A*-A grades at GCSE obtained in the English private school sector.

We wish all our gradating students well at their new universities, in the UK, Europe or USA. In the graduating class of 2022, one student will be studying Maths at Oxford; another will begin her course in Architecture at Cambridge. Other top-ranking UK universities welcoming this year’s graduates include St Andrews, Imperial, UCL, Edinburgh and Bath. The United States has attracted more pupils than ever, with pupils starting their higher education at Columbia, Stanford, UPenn, Johns Hopkins and Duke, amongst other excellent colleges.

In Spain, IE and Navarra are both popular with this year’s leavers, and it is pleasing to see many of our newest Old Runnymedians attend universities in other EU countries like the Netherlands (Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Twente), France, Ireland (Trinity College Dublin) and Italy (Bocconi).
