A Level Results Day - Thursday 15 August 2019

Students at The Buckingham School are today celebrating their A Level and BTEC examination results.

The following students gained remarkable results:-

  • Ellen Coote – gained an A grade in Extended Project Qualification and B grades in History, Media and Psychology. 
  • Daisy Short – gained an A grade in Extended Project Qualification and B grades in Photography, English Literature and Psychology.
  • Nicole Wheway – gained an A grade in Psychology, A grade in Extended Project Qualification, B grade in Media and C in English Literature.
  • Cian Jones – gained an A in Criminology, Distinction in BTEC Law and a Merit in BTEC Business Studies.  

A Level Psychology shows continued strength with 53% of students achieving A*-B grades. 

The vocational courses also continue to be a real strength of the school with the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) excelling. We are particularly pleased with 75% of students achieving A*-B grades.   

The Extended Project is a single piece of work requiring a high degree of planning, preparation, research and autonomous working. The students' choice of topic is free.  It takes the form of a dissertation and requires a detailed preparation/planning stage, the production of the report and a presentation that sums up the report. It has been praised by universities for guiding students into higher education and carries UCAS points.

The school sees a number of subjects with a 100% pass rate, including Art, English Literature, Media, Psychology, BTEC Business Studies, Computer Science, Performing Arts and Sports.
