Sherborne School’s A level success


Sherborne School and Sherborne Girls are celebrating superb and well-deserved A level results.
Sherborne School leavers look to start their degree courses, which range from Veterinary Science, Medicine, Mathematics and Engineering to English, History and Theology.
Sherborne Girls will be taking up a range of courses including Aerospace Engineering, Law, Veterinary Medicine, Physiotherapy, Liberal Arts, Medicine, Graphic Design, Economics and Finance, International Relations and Neuroscience.
Pupils from the two schools will be studying at top UK universities including Oxford, Cambridge, and Russell Group and prestigious overseas universities including Hong Kong University, as well as universities in Norway, Estonia, Spain, Paris and New York.
At Sherborne School, 28 per cent of Upper Sixth boys were graded A, 60 per cent A-A and 83 per cent A-B. Given the additional challenges that they had to endure throughout their Sixth Form careers as a result of the pandemic, these achievements are all the more impressive and a special mention is made by the school of Denys, a Ukrainian HMC scholar, who achieved AAAA despite coping with the dreadful events unfolding in his homeland. Headmaster Dr Dominic Luckett said: ‘We could not be more proud of them all, not simply because of their stellar academic and co-curricular achievements but for the superb young men that they are’. Sherborne Girls are celebrating a record 26 per cent at A grade. Sherborne Girls’ Head, Dr Ruth Sullivan, said: ‘I would like to congratulate our outgoing Upper Sixth who have been a privilege to work with during their time at Sherborne Girls. They have shown a level of maturity, good humour, focus and stoicism beyond their years, while continuing to be caring, compassionate and supportive of one another. I have never failed to be impressed by their approach to learning and life.
‘I, along with all the staff at Sherborne Girls, wish them every success as they embark on the next stage of their journeys.’
