Students at QE have achieved incredibly good A Level results. With an overall pass rate of 99 % and 50% of the grades being A*, A or B, the College has much to celebrate and be proud of. A high number of students got some of the top marks in the country – 89 individuals gained 135 A*s between them including Dominic Birch from Long Newton who was awarded 5 straight A*s and Michel Jones from Sedgefield who attained 4 A*s.

 Dominic’s 5A*s were in English Literature, History, Maths, Further Maths and Extended Project whilst Michael’s 4 A*s were for Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths. Dominic will now go to Durham University to study History and English whilst Michael will read Engineering at Cambridge University.

 Principal, Tim Fisher, says:

 ‘Our students and staff are to be congratulated on their well-deserved success in this year’s A Level examinations. Our overall results are tremendous and, to have so many students attaining the highest grade is a magnificent achievement that reflects the drive and determination of very talented young people. Dominic and Michael’s results are absolutely outstanding and they have much to look forward to in the future.’
