Students and staff at Dr Challoner’s High School in Little Chalfont are celebrating excellent A level results. 54% of all grades were A* or A, and 20% were A*. Headteacher Alan Roe said, "We are incredibly pleased that our wonderful Year 13 students have done so well and would like to heartily congratulate them on their success. I would also like to thank our passionate and hard-working staff for the great job they have done.”
Skye joined Challoner’s High in Year 12 and was thrilled with her two A*s and an A grade and is going to Nottingham to study Chemistry. She said, “I joined in the Sixth Form – it was the best decision ever.”
Adhvika achieved three A*s and an A grade and is studying Engineering at Cambridge and said, “I have been here since Year 7 and have loved every minute.” It was a bumper year for university admissions success with record numbers securing places at Oxford and Cambridge and the vast majority of students gaining entry to their first-choice university. Many of the girls paid tribute to their wonderful teachers including Ella, who will study Medicine at Exeter and said, “I couldn’t have done it without the teacher’s support.”
“Across our staff there is an overwhelming sense of how proud we are of Year 13”, said Alan Roe. “We have seen them grow and thrive to become confident, fun, intellectually ambitious, respectful and enormously decent young women. We thank them for enriching our lives, wish them well and encourage them to get out there and shape the world.”

Note: In 2020 qualifications were awarded through the provision of a centre assessed grade, and in 2021 through teacher assessed grades, because of the cancellation of public examinations. As such those results are not comparable with previous years' outcomes and have not been published nationally.
Given the uneven impact of the pandemic on school and college performance data, the government has said you should not make direct comparisons between the performance data for one school or college and another, or to data from previous years.
