Harrow’s outgoing Fifth Form achieved outstanding (I)GCSE results, following a return to pre-pandemic grading standards this year.
Over 40% of grades achieved were at grade 9 level, with over 70% of grades at either grade 9 or grade 8 level. Bar the pandemic years, the grade 9-A* percentage is the highest on record, and the 9-A rate is the highest since 2013.
At A level, almost a third of boys achieved A*s. Bar the pandemic years, the A*-A and A*-B rate is the highest since 2013. Over two-thirds of grades were either A*s or As. At A Level, the results represent the strongest value-added results for the boys in a decade.
Two boys achieved five or more A* grades, with eleven boys gaining four or more A*s. Twenty-one boys (13.0%) gained three of more A*s and eighty-five boys (52.8%) gained three or more A*-A grades.
These strong A-level results have translated into a positive set of university outcomes with Harrovians taking up places at six of the eight Ivy League schools in the USA and nearly a quarter of boys securing places at institutions ranked in the world's top twenty, including Princeton, Columbia and Edinburgh.
