Eltham College is delighted to be celebrating yet another rise in A level results along with fantastic offers from some of the country’s most prestigious universities. From Aeronautical Engineering, Archaeology and Architecture right through to Zoology. This year’s A level successes mean that students are leaving Eltham to study a huge range of challenging subjects at leading universities.
Students achieved an outstanding set of results with 68% A*-A grades and 93% A*- B grades, a strong increase on the results achieved in 2018. Those achieving A*- A has increased by 5% from the previous year, bucking the trend against the national picture of top grades being at their lowest level for more than a decade.
There were excellent results across every area of the curriculum, with boys and girls performing equally well and outstanding results across the curriculum; in Modern Foreign Languages, Sciences and the Humanities and Creative subjects.

Eltham College all-rounder, Seb, is also celebrating after achieving 2 A* and an A in History and Politics and Drama. He will now go onto Leeds University to study Drama.
Seb said: “I’m feeling positive and relieved. Throughout my time at Eltham College I’ve been involved in a lot of co-curricular activities taking part in all drama productions, including lead roles. I have also done some directing and been involved in many house events, from water polo and football to drama and music. To have all these opportunities and to get great results is just amazing.”
Well done to all students. We wish you well for the future.
