Results and Destinations

Congratulations to all our students on their successes in their A level examinations.  Every year, students leave Waddesdon to take up a range of opportunities, including places at Oxbridge, Russell Group Universities, prestigious creative and performing arts institutions and on competitive degree apprenticeships.  Whatever their destination, we wish our students every future happiness, success and fulfilment.

2022

Congratulations to the Class of 2022! We are very proud of you for all the challenges you overcame during Year 13 and we wish you every future success.

The three year T ALPS Score has been maintained at a 2, “outstanding” putting our Sixth Form in the top 10% of all centres in the country as shown on the ALPS thermometer below. Progress measures are projected to be “above the national average”.

Despite challenges from uncertainty following the return to examinations 96% of students have achieved their intended destination, supported by our experienced Sixth Form Team. Of the students who have chosen to study at University, 87% achieved their first choice place, including 21% at Russell Group Universities.

We are grateful to the hard work of our teachers and the unwavering support of parents/carers and families.
