What an incredible day at Highgate Wood School on A Level results day!
Students achieved 23% A*/A grades, and over half (58%) of grades were A* to B. A* to C grades have increased by 6% since last year (84%) and the average grade is a B. We are also thrilled that once again we have a 100% pass rate.
Students and staff were jumping up and down with joy on the 15th of August at Highgate Wood School, can you blame them? It became clear that their hard work and dedication resulted in yet another year of good exam results.
It’s no surprise that our students achieved fantastic results, their academic progress and examination success is ensured by top quality teaching, first rate facilities and challenging targets.
Headteacher Patrick Cozier writes:
We are proud of our students who have achieved these excellent and well deserved results as a consequence of their dedication and hard work. These results are also a reward for our staff who have supported our students so brilliantly along the way.

Director of Sixth Form Lindsay Pinnick Writes:
Highgate Wood Sixth Form continues working on pushing more students toward the top A Level grades and consequently applications to leading Universities whilst at the same time supporting the social and emotional well-being of all students. The grades achieved this year by our students give them such fantastic opportunities and the potential to move on to great futures. The range of courses is certainly impressive and we wish all students well as they leave Highgate Wood School Sixth Form in the knowledge that they are ready to transition to Higher Education. I would like to commend the effort and hard work from our students and thank their supportive families and our excellent teachers.
