A Level students visited Harrodian for results day on 10th August 2021

When Harrodian A Level students gathered at the school to receive their A Level exam results on Tuesday 10th August the mood was as upbeat and sunny as the weather.  And with good reason. Despite all of the disruption caused by the pandemic and the challenges presented by remote working, 90 per cent of our Upper Sixth Formers succeeded in attaining their first choice destination this year, with 80 per cent of them gaining a place at a prestigious Russell Group University.

David Behan, Head of Sixth Form

David Behan, Head of Harrodian Sixth Form is delighted for his students. ‘I’m thrilled that so many Harrodians secured their first choice Higher Education destination after two two incredibly challenging years of education’, he said. ‘Despite the need to adapt to education online, our Upper Sixth students continued the improving academic trend of the last ten years. The quality of their destinations is impressive and the broad range of their course choices reflects the continuing diversity of our students’ interests and aspirations.’

The range of subject choice ranges widely with Economics, Business, and Science leading the way but with English, History, Geography Art, Architecture, Psychology and Philosophy all continuing to feature strongly.
