A Level and BTEC Results 2023

All of Cheney’s staff want to say huge congratulations to our fantastic departing students, to say how proud of them we all are, and to wish them all the best for their next steps.

We are delighted to report an excellent set of results from this summer’s exams, and (more importantly) lots of our Year 13 students going on to their choice of university, apprenticeship or other destinations. It should be remembered that these A Levels were the only public exams that this cohort had done, as they were one of the years affected by the Covid cancellation of exams. It is all the more pleasing that they have done so well, especially in a year where everything is supposed to have gone back to normal, with very few adjustments to take account of disruption to learning.

Overall, including BTEC results, 28% of grades were A or A* and over 80% of A Levels were graded C or higher. There have been some fantastic individual results, including 4 places at Oxford or Cambridge and 4 for medicine. Some of our outstanding results include:

  • Faith Woodruffe-Peacock gained 4 A* grades in Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Geography, and has a place at Bristol to study Economics and Maths.
  • Tobias Doye gained 4 A* in Maths, Further Maths, Biology and Chemistry, together with some exceptional results in Maths Step, to read Maths at Cambridge.
