Tonbridge’s students put in outstanding performances in this year’s A-Levels, with 42 per cent of all grades awarded to the Upper Sixth at the highest grade of A*.
In total, 79 per cent of all grades awarded are A* or A, while nearly all grades (97 per cent) achieved by Tonbridge students are either A*, A or B.
James Priory, the School’s Headmaster, said: “We are proud of the character and motivation the boys have shown throughout their Sixth Form studies. At the same time as continuing to enjoy co-curricular pursuits and contributing to the wider leadership of the School, our Upper Sixth have shown tremendous intellectual creativity, worked hard and achieved impressive academic results.”
He added: “I wish our leavers every happiness and success during the next chapter of their educational careers.”
The large majority of Tonbridge’s leavers have once more secured their first-choice university destination and are heading to leading institutions across the world, including Oxford and Cambridge. In the US, the School’s leavers have gained places at Princeton, Columbia, Chicago, Duke, New York University Abu Dhabi and the University of Southern California.
Other top UK universities which will be welcoming Tonbridge boys this autumn include LSE, Imperial College, Bristol, Bath, Edinburgh, Warwick and York.
Tonbridge was ranked as the 8th best school in the country in Parent Power, The Sunday Times Schools Guide 2023, which is based on A-Level and GCSE performance. It was also the country’s top performing boys’ boarding school.
