Bright futures ahead for the cohort of 2023
Despite the Government return to the pre-pandemic grade boundaries of 2019, Berkhamsted students have performed admirably in their A Levels with 89% of those who applied securing their place onto their chosen university.
Alongside an array of achievements in aesthetic, athletic and adventurous activities we applaud the character of this year group refined through tough exposure in the pandemic which shone through in leadership of the pupil body, ambition, innovation, and mutual care.
The last five years have represented a period of uncertainty, not least in the assessment of young people aged 18. At the same time as celebrating the achievements and flourishing of our leavers, we look forward to a period when all school leavers in the UK can rely on a predictable and fair system of assessment for entry into higher education or the workplace.
Our leavers have gained so much more than exam grades during their time at Berkhamsted that they can be proud of, and skills that will be the foundations for their bright futures. We look forward to watching the development of our remarkable students as Old Berkhamstedians.
