2014 A level Results

A-Level students at University College School, Hampstead have achieved the second best ever results in the history of the school, with 70% of A level exams graded at A*- A, 93% at A* - B and half the cohort achieving at least three A grades.

Headmaster Mark Beard commented, “In a year when A level results are predicted to fall nationally, our pupils have bucked the trend and accomplished top results while also enriching the life of the school through tremendous contributions to Music, Drama, Art and Sport.   I would also like to thank our staff for their never-ceasing efforts and UCS parents for their support this year.”

50% of the cohort of 152 pupils achieved three A grades or better and 30 pupils secured four A grades or higher.  UCS is particularly proud of Alex Smith, Oliver Tesh and Marc Huttman for obtaining a clean sweep of four A*s this year.

This year’s leavers will move on to a variety of impressive university destinations, including 20 pupils to Oxbridge Colleges.
