Bootham School A-level stars include GB team Modern Pentathlete, Adam Price, and Toby Jackson who achieved 100% marks in all English papers
Bootham School students celebrated another clutch of excellent results. Among them is GB team modern pentathlete, Adam Price, who achieved five top grades, including three A*s and an A at A/S level. Adam, who has represented the country at the European Games in Russia and the World Championships in China, plans to study Architecture at Bath University. Toby Jackson, who also gained a clutch of top grades which secured his place to read English at Cambridge, was particularly pleased with his 100% marks in each of the English modules.
His tutor and Deputy Head, Suzanne Hall, said,
Toby is certainly one of the most intelligent students I have ever taught and it’s been a real privilege to have him in my tutor group.
Commenting on the results overall, Headmaster, Jonathan Taylor said,
A good set of results at Bootham once again. No doubt our league table ranking will be as strong as ever, but within the cohort we have already spotted some potential marking anomalies which we will be sending back to the exam boards. As I have stated previously, until the exam boards can be relied upon, errors will continue to blight results day for students and their teachers alike.
With nearly one third of the students at Bootham gaining 3 or more A grades, some of the other top performers include Sally Foster who plans to read Classics at Oxford, Mimi Evagora-Campbell who will be going to Cambridge to read Philosophy and Sophie Wood who plans to study Computer Science at Cambridge.
