Charles Darwin School

Excellent A Level Results


With a tradition of high academic achievement and dedication to nurturing young minds, Charles Darwin School once again demonstrated excellent results, showcasing the hard work and determination of its students.

It is a great privilege to be able to pay tribute to our pupils, individually and collectively. It has been widely publicised in the media that results nationally were returning to that similar to 2019 levels and we are pleased that our results have surpassed our 2019 level in many areas, this was the case in the important measure of proportion of grades at A*-C, of which we had 74%.

These achievements are particularly commendable considering the unique challenges faced over the past couple of years, with students having not sat public exams since primary school.

The students have achieved these fantastic results, however it has been made possible through some truly excellent teaching and support from the staff here at Charles Darwin School and I would like to thank them all for this.” Mr Smith also went on to say that “the achievements of Charles Darwin students were not limited to just academics.
