Nervous students arrived at Lavant House School near Chichester this morning (Thursday, August 16) to pick up those all important envelopes containing their A-level results.
They needn’t have been nervous as the small cohort did extremely well.
Headmistress Kate Bartholomew said: “We are thrilled with this year’s results as all of the girls achieved at least two or more A-levels at grade B or above.
“We’re particularly pleased that 90 per cent of all A-level results this year at Lavant House are grade A or B, compared with 65 per cent last year.”
Lucy Dear was the first to collect her significant white envelope this morning and was thrilled with her result of two B grades. She’s now off to study film and television production at Anglia Ruskin.
She said: “I was so nervous last night that I just wanted to get it over with, which is why I’m the first here probably.”
Alice Lane arrived for her results accompanied by her calm and relaxed looking mother. She was thrilled to find that she’d achieved two A grades and a B and can now take up her place at Exeter University to study psychology.
She said: “I really felt I needed the support so came in here to find out my fate. I was so nervous last night that I could hardly sleep at all but I’m so pleased this morning.” Her mother said that her excellent results were down to a lot of hard work but Alice admitted that she was able to fit in a social life too.
Ex-joint head girl, Leah Deeney was similarly thrilled with her A and two Bs when she opened her envelope alone. Celebrating with her teachers she said that she is now going to take a singing course at Bristol Old Vic theatre school with a view to getting into the sought after acting course next year.
She said that she was thankful to the teachers for pulling her through some lulls in her A-level studies and that she was going to celebrate with a walk on the beach with her father who she credits for being her main support and motivator, enjoying a festive bag of chips.
