Today (17th August 2023) at Sutton Valence School in Maidstone, Kent, students were delighted to celebrate with their parents and teachers, some excellent A Level examination results. Following a challenging few years of study owing to many events beyond their control, the cohort of 2023 achieved stellar results in their examinations and have earned places at a laudable range of destinations for future study. Indeed, almost 90 percent of students have secured places at their first or second choice university and over 30 percent of grades were at A or A* level.
The Headmaster, James Thomas, comments: ‘We are very proud of this wonderful group of young people. The atmosphere here at the School this morning was lovely and really showed our community feel with students, parents and staff all reflecting on the great achievements of this year group. It’s especially important to remember the challenges that they have faced, making these results even more impressive. While many have achieved the very top grades available, it is equally important to applaud those who have benefitted from the added value of attending Sutton Valence where individual and personal progress and development are key aspects of our provision. As well as their great academic results, they have also excelled outside the classroom and have shown themselves to be great citizens ready for the world. We wish them all the very best in the future and really hope that they will all stay in touch with this special School.’
