Nicholas Dyer, Headmaster, commented: “I am delighted at this year’s A Level results at The Crypt School. In a year when many students were studying the new reformed A Levels, our Year 13 results are very impressive indeed.

This success is the product of two years of hard work by our students and the dedicated support of their teachers. I am also delighted with the impressive set of university destinations that our students are heading to in the autumn and equally pleased to see a very good number of students who have now secured leading apprenticeships with local and national companies, that combine work with studying for a degree. 

These A Level results are the very best the School has ever achieved and a send out a very strong signal to those students in Year 11 who are thinking of coming to The Crypt to study for their A Levels, that they too can achieve highly in our outstanding sixth form.”
