A Level Results 2017

Loughborough Grammar School has been recognised for its outstanding added value at A Level by the Government’s official performance tables, which were published in February. LGS does not support the national newspapers’ league tables, as their single measure of achievement fails to take into account the selectivity of individual schools.  ‘Value Added’, however, takes account of boys’ ability when they join us, and is a calculation of the progress that boys make during their time at LGS. We are therefore proud that the Department for Education has recognised that our A Level Value Added scores are ‘Well above Average’, placing us in the top 5% of schools nationally.

We are pleased to share GCSE and A Level results on our websites as below. We believe that the tables of results we supply are much more informative than a single statistic chosen by a newspaper.

Year 13 boys at Loughborough Grammar School are celebrating the school’s best A Level results in 5 years. It had been a nervous wait for the 126 students who sat exams this year as this was the first year of ‘new’ A Levels in many subjects, with all papers examined at the end of the Sixth Form. All boys can be proud of their efforts over the past two years which will allow them to embark on their chosen university courses in a few weeks’ time. It is to their great credit that this success has been achieved whilst maintaining a sense of balance in their lives through their contributions to the school community. Whether sportsmen, actors, musicians or entrepreneurs, Loughborough Grammar School expects all boys to enjoy the broadest of educations, and these young men leave us with the experiences and skills that will enable them to make a great success of university and life beyond. We look forward to welcoming them back to school in the very near future.
