2015 has seen Sixth Form students from Sibford School near Banbury gaining top A Level grades across a broad range of subject areas.
A* and A grades have been achieved in Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Chinese, English, French, History, Maths, Further Maths, Music, Philosophy & Ethics, Physics and Russian.
Michael Goodwin, Head of Sibford School, said: “Our prospectus states that we offer a broad and balanced curriculum which reflects the view that while some students may have a talent for mathematics, science or history, others may be gifted in the arts, horticulture or sport.
“This year’s A Level results illustrate precisely this. For example, student Myles Atherstone achieved A grades in Chemistry and Physics and a B in Maths. Meanwhile, Joe Slatter gained an A* in Art (coincidentally one of his pieces was a portrait of Myles!), a B in Design & Technology and a Distinction* (the equivalent of an A* at A Level) in his Level 3 Countryside Management course.”
Other students achieving A* grades include Abigail Cooley (English), Lucy Homer (Philosophy & Ethics) and Lainey Howard (Art).
There was success too for Sibford’s overseas boarders. Keshav Sharma achieved an A* in Chemistry, and A grades in Biology, Maths and Physics. Keshav, who moved to the school from India in 2013, is planning to study medicine. Meanwhile Chinese student Vladimir Ip, who has been at Sibford since 2008, gained an A* in Maths and A grades in Physics and Further Maths. Year 12 Polish student, Justyna Urbanczyk, who took her French A Level a year early, achieved an A*.
