A Level Results 2023

Latymerian, Matilda (pictured here with Head of Chemistry, Mr Forbes and Head of Biology, Ms Hansford), has achieved the highest A Level results in the country in two subjects – Chemistry and Biology

  • 93% of all grades A*- B
  • 89% of students secure places at 1st choice university including 19 places at Oxbridge 
  • 75% of all grades A*/A

Latymer Upper School’s Class of 2023’s hard work has been rewarded with outstanding A Level and Pre-U results. In total there were 233 A*s and 231 A grades with 93% of all grades being A*-B. 25 students recorded three or more straight A*s of which 7 achieved four of the very top grades. 

These impressive results mean 89% of Latymerians will now be going to their first choice university, including Yale, Brown, Oxford and Cambridge, Durham, Edinburgh, Imperial, LSE, St Andrew’s and UCL.

“This is the best set of results in ‘normal times’ ever achieved by Latymerians,” said the Head, Mr Goodhew. “I am absolutely thrilled for all of our students and staff, who have worked so hard over these last two years. This is wonderful recognition of their endeavours. This multi-talented year group are now going on to study a wide range of courses at some of the world’s leading universities both in the UK and abroad. ”   

Among the students celebrating all A*s today is Matilda, who has achieved the highest marks in the country in both Chemistry and Biology A Levels. She takes up her place at Imperial College to study Biological Sciences with Spanish.    

“I couldn’t be more proud of Matilda,” Mr Goodhew continued. “For her to have achieved the highest mark in the country, in two subjects, is phenomenal. She fully deserves this accolade, which completes an exceptional year for her, having qualified for, and won Silver at the recent International Biology Olympiad.”   Matilda will be joined at Imperial by Camille, who also got straight A*s and will be studying Microbiology. 

“Our boys and girls have done incredibly well in STEM subjects and STEP papers, including Physics,” said Mr Goodhew. 40 students are now going on to study degree subjects in STEM. Like Matilda and Camille, Iris, Nina, Jasmine, Sofia, Ellen, Saskia, Olivia, Nikki and Louise all got straight A*s. Sofia now takes up a place at  Cambridge (Jesus) to study Maths. After getting straight A*s Ellie will be studying Computer Science at Oxford (Worcester) as will Hugh (Balliol) and they will be joined there by School Vice Captain, Daniel who got straight A*s and will now study Physics (Merton) and Amitai (Wadham) taking Maths and Philosophy. His co-Vice Captain, Mollie will be going to Edinburgh to study Psychology and will be joined there by School Captain, Christian who will be studying History, having achieved all A*s and School Captain, Bee will be taking her place at Yale to study Liberal Arts.  

Latymer’s linguists also shone brightly. In Mandarin every mark was a  Distinction and across the Modern Foreign Languages, all grades were A*-B. Noam will go to Cambridge to study Spanish and Portuguese; Michaela (straight A*s in Biology, Maths and Spanish) will be studying Modern Languages and Culture at Durham, and Fred to Edinburgh to study French and Italian. Results in English were also exceptional, with many students going on to further study, including Zhaniya (Merton), Julian (Somerville) and Angelika (New College) at Oxford, Ismene (Trinity Hall) at Cambridge and Sasha at Durham. 

There were also top marks across the board in Fine Art & Design, Photography and Art History, with Louis getting straight A*s in Art, Drama and English, James A* in Art Distinction in Mandarin and an A in History and Krishna A* in Drama, Distinction in Art History and an A in Economics. Gigi will be the first Latymerian to take up a place at NYU’s Tisch School of Arts to study Photography. 

“Our commitment to social mobility continues to have a positive impact on the lives of young people in our area, with all 33 bursary holders in this cohort, not only having flourished across all areas of School life but now achieving excellent results,” said Mr Goodhew. “Tavishi is a great example; as well as her Prefect responsibilities and opening the Round Square International Conference this year, she achieved 2A*s and one A and has offers from UCL to study Psychology and from Notre Dame; similarly Pearl is off to Durham to study English, Thomas, who got all A*s and a 1 in his STEP paper, will be studying Maths at Cambridge (Emmanuel) and Sabrine to LSE to study Politics and International Relations.”

 

“Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are also able to offer places at Latymer to children fleeing conflicts around the world. I’m absolutely delighted for Tymur who joined us from Ukraine and despite only studying for his A Levels for the last 8 months has achieved A, C and D in Music, Physics and Maths and will now go on to Tonmeister, on the best Sound Recording course in the country!”
