Congratulations to the Class of 2020! We are very proud of you for all the challenges you overcame during Year 13 and we wish you every future success.
Following the cancellation of the A-level examinations, students received results based on either the Centre Adjusted Grades or the Ofqual algorithm (whichever was higher). The overall ALPS score for the year group was a 2, or “Outstanding” and in line with previous years.
Despite the challenges resulting from the uncertainty and changes in policy by the Department for Education and Ofqual, 83% of students achieved their first choice university places. 97% of students achieved their intended destinations, supported by our experienced and proactive Sixth Form team and our Careers Advisor.
Congratulations to all our students on their successes in their A Level examinations. Students leave Waddesdon to take up a range of opportunities, including places at Oxford, Russell Group universities, and prestigious apprenticeships. Whatever their destination, we wish our students the very best for future happiness, success and fulfilment.
Our students’ achievements were yet again Very Good (ALPS 4), with our three year progress measure deemed to be Outstanding (ALPS 2). 41 of all grades were A* or A.
We are grateful to the hard work of our teachers and the unwavering support of parents and families.
The vast majority of students achieved their planned destination. They take with them our very best wishes for future happiness, success and fulfilment.

Year 13 Leaver Destinations
You can see below the many exciting destinations of our leavers, whether at university, on an apprenticeship or traineeship, a Gap Year or into employment.
The majority of our students are accepted into university (79% – 2020). With the rise in university tuition fees, an increasing number of students are opting for the apprenticeship (6% – 2020), traineeship or employment routes (13% – 2020), and in recent years, our students have been successful in their applications to companies like Nielsen, BAE Systems, Ted Baker, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Ralph Lauren, and Abbey Precision Engineering.
A growing number of students are also taking Gap Years (13% – 2020), with students volunteering around the globe. Some are working and travelling, while others are gaining valuable work experience and internships.
We wish all our Year 13 leavers a successful and happy future.
