Academic Results 2023
Every year, there is a sense of nervousness on results day among students, parents, and teachers. So, how did the 2023 examinations go? Was it a time of celebration, or did people’s worst fears materialise? As always, the students achieved a fantastic set of results. These results are a just reward for the tremendous effort and resillience the students have shown over the last few years.
- Our IGCSE students obtained an incredible 40% A star/A grades and achieved a 100% pass rate.
- The Year 13 BTEC students achieved a remarkable 27% distinction star (the highest possible grade at BTEC, equivalent to an A at A-level) and also achieved a 100% pass rate.
- Lastly, our A-level students attained 23% A star/A grades and a 98% pass rate.
These are phenomenal results that once again set the bar very high for our new Year 11 and 13 students. However, I should add that our Year 12s achieved 25% A grades in their AS levels. As this is the highest possible grade at AS level it seems they are gearing up to take on this challenge already!
Although these are fantastic results the true successes come from examining the individual stories behind each grade and seeing how students overcame their personal challenges to obtain results they did not believe were possible. Success like this is driven by the hard work of the students, supported by their parents, teachers, and the wider school community. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to offer thanks to all of you for your contributions, whether they were large or small.
The banners below showcase some of the highest-achieving students of this academic year,but all of our students deserve praise for what they have achieved.
Secondary Students Achieving Top in Thailand & Top in World
With over 10,000 Cambridge schools worldwide in 160 different countries, there are over 1.2 million examination entries for Cambridge IGCSE, AS and A Level qualifications on an annual basis. In Thailand alone, there are over 100 schools offering these qualifications and thousands of students completing them. This makes the following news quite exceptional indeed! In October of each year, Cambridge announces those students who have scored the highest marks in their exams within Thailand, as well as in the world. HeadStart students have regularly received ‘Top in Thailand’ awards over the last nine years. However, this year our student’s performance in their exams has been truly exceptional. 14 of our students have scored the highest marks in Thailand and for the first time, one of those students scored the highest marks in the world! The diversity of the subjects that have received such high marks is incredible: Literature, Mathematics, the Sciences, Humanities, Computing, Language and the Creative Arts. The success of these students is a result of sustained hard work, effort and dedication on their part, and outstanding teachers and supportive parents helping them to achieve success.
