Clifton High School saw another year of record-breaking A-level results with 48 per cent of pupils achieving A*-A grades and a third of Year 13s achieving three A*-As. 

A quarter of students exceeded their expected grades in all subjects by an average of at least one grade, maintaining Clifton High’s trend of significant added value.  

Specific subjects also saw great success with 100% of English Literature, Further Mathematics, Chinese and Art students achieving an A*-A. Additionally in History, German, Photography and Music, 100% of students received grades A*-B, 79% of all grades awarded in Mathematics and Further Mathematics were A*-A, 80% of Chemistry results were A*-A and 93% of Biology grades were A*-B.

These results have enabled Clifton High students to follow a wide array of passions in their higher educational journeys. One student has accepted a place studying Biomedical Sciences at St Anne’s College, Oxford, whilst others will study Medicine, Product Design, Art Foundation, Actor Musicianship and History to name but a few.
