Pupils at Hill House are celebrating as they receive another year of outstanding A levels, despite national predictions of a significant downturn in grades post COVID.

A massive 51% of A levels were graded at A*/A, with 37% of pupils gaining straight As and A*s, and the school securing its fifth consecutive year of a 100% pass rate. A fantastic 75% of results were at grade B and above.

Sam Honeybone, a mainstay of Doncaster and Hill House Music, secured 4 A*s and joins Jesus College, Oxford, to study Classics. Hannah Simpson also heads to Oxford for a place studying Theology and Religion at Mansfield College, where both will be joined by Tasneem Mazai who enters Somerville College to study Medicine.

Head Girl Anna Russin will join Columbia University, New York, while Liberty Elliott’s 2 A*s and 1A take her to King's College London to study Neuroscience. Head Boy, James Burley, who combined his studies with playing hockey for England and Doncaster Hockey Club, heads to Nottingham Trent to study Sports and Exercise Science.

Other star performers included Abhishek Vashista, who achieved 3A*s, and Ameya Garg and Mollie Tomlinson, who both gained 2A*s and 2As. Leading musician Emily Schmidt is delighted to have won a place at Edinburgh for Veterinary Science, while tennis star Emily Busby goes to Manchester to study Medicine.

Headmaster David Holland was delighted with the results, saying "it is wonderful to see these pupils doing so well. They and their teachers worked so very hard, both in school and online during various lockdowns.

We should also remember that this is the group of pupils for whom these were their first public examinations, having not sat their GCSEs due to COVID. Warmest congratulations to all pupils, parents and staff."
