10th August 2021 — Despite the difficulties and uncertainties of the past two years, the Stover School 2021 Year 13 cohort have produced the best A Level results on school record. Stover pupils achieved a 100% pass rate, with 65% of grades being awarded at A* to B. The targeted support offered by the school staff and tremendous work ethic displayed by the pupils has resulted, on average, with each candidate exceeding their expected results by a cumulative 1.2 grades.

Particular congratulations should go to Head Girl, Darcy Maxwell, who joined Stover 15 years ago in the Nursery, and achieved 2A*s and an A grade in Economics, History and French, as well as an EPQ and is going on to read Politics and International Studies at Warwick University. Xavier Osei-Owusu, Head Boy and a full boarder, who achieved an A* and 2 A grades in Maths, Further Maths and Physics in addition to an EPQ and will be studying Engineering at Durham University in September; and Elliot Lukies, who gained A*, A and B grades in Business, Economics and Maths plus an AS in Further Maths and will be reading Economics at York.

Headmaster, Richard Notman, said “I am immensely proud of both my pupils and the staff, who have demonstrated resilience, flexibility and dedication in abundance over the last 24 months. The uncertainty of not knowing how pupils were to be assessed along with Covid alterations to school regimes was extremely taxing for all; to come out of the circumstance with results that eclipse any previously achieved by the school is nothing short of incredible. Very well done to all of the candidates and the staff who helped them through a very testing 2 years of A level study and assessment.”

Stover School (Coed 3-18) is a day and boarding school in Devon.
