City of London Freemen’s School in Ashtead is celebrating excellent A level results, recording some of its best results in the last six years. 31% of all grades achieved were graded A*, an 9% increase on 2016 results. 64% of grades achieved were A*-A, which represents not only 8% more A*/ A grades on 2016, but also a 9 % increase from the AS level results this same cohort achieved last year, despite the second year of A levels being significantly harder than the first.
“These results are testament to the hard work that students and dedicated staff have put into this last year,” suggested Headmaster, Roland Martin. “We are fortunate to have a talented group of teachers, supportive parents and ambitious students at Freemen’s and it is a winning combination.
Results like these need to be put into the context of a busy School: the accomplishments these same students have made to sport, music, drama and socially in the School, as well as their contributions to the wider community, are equally noteworthy and we are all very proud of the leavers of 2017.
We wish those students now leaving Freemen’s further success as they continue their academic career and embark on life beyond education. ”
Freemen’s has introduced a new curriculum for the Sixth Form which gives them a broader experience of learning and is about to begin a multi-million pound investment in Sixth Form learning and social spaces with the refurbishment of the Mansion House at the heart of Ashtead Park.
