Abingdon-on-Thames, Oxfordshire – Our Lady’s Abingdon has recorded its most successful ever year of A-level results with a 20% increase on last year’s A*-A results. The A*-B results are also the best in the school’s history, with 83.1% gaining A*-B grades.

Business Studies, Drama, Geography, Further Maths, PE and Textiles Departments all achieved 100% A*-A, with other subjects notably close to achieving this. 53% of students achieved 3 or more A*-A grades

The following 9 pupils achieved 3 or more A*-A grades:

James Wilson, Grace Hummerston, Ellie Flemming, Holly Mayor, Clara Wells, Oliver Wheaton, James Green, Zoe Barrett and Marine Pons.

EPQ results were notably strong with 100% of students achieving A*-A.

OLA has an established reputation for the ‘Value Added’ it achieves for its students and this year was no different, with an average VA score across all departments of more than half a grade over baseline predictions. Value added was similar for boys and girls. The departments with the best VA, adding 1.5-2 grades on average are Business, Psychology, PE and English.

Commenting on the results Principal Stephen Oliver said:

This has been a very challenging year for our students and staff but all of their endeavours have certainly paid off today in a remarkable way. Congratulations to all!

Head of OLA 6th Elizabeth Lawson commented:

There are many wonderful achievements today. Congratulations to every student. I am very proud of the wonderful Sixth Form we have and the staff who give so much to help our students succeed so strongly every year.

Dr Becky Smethurst

To describe astrophysicist Dr Becky Smethurst as a rising star might be a pun, but it’s also true. Her most recent award (from the Royal Astronomical Society) recognises her ground-breaking research, and she has also been both awarded and applauded for her contribution to public engagement in Physics.
