Andy Hume, Chak Kwok and Eddie Mumby helped make Bourne Academy's A-level results this year the 'best ever', according to headteacher Laurence Reilly.

 

Students embraced recent changes to their A-levels with relish at Bourne Academy where the pass rate reached a record level.

About 99.5 per cent of the 85 students taking A-level exams this summer achieved passes, with just under 60 per cent collecting grades of C or above.

Among the leading students were Andy Hume (18) who achieved an A* in maths and A grades in further maths, physics and chemistry to secure a place at Imperial College, London, to study computer science.

Meanwhile, Chak Kwok (18) will fly back to Hong Kong to study engineering after achieving an A* in further maths and As in maths and physics.

There were four As for Eddie Mumby (18) in maths, Engish Literature, sociology and general studies, with a place at Surrey University to study politics and sociology now waiting for him.

Bourne Academy headteacher Laurence Reilly said: “I am absolutely delighted with our 99.5 per cent pass rate at A-level which is our best ever result and particularly pleasing in a year when more stringent conditions were applied as all students had to sit their examination in the summer at the end of their course.”
