A Level Exam Results 2023

The Hallifordian values of resilience and intellectual curiosity once again shone through as our Upper Sixth demonstrated that consistent hard work and a resolute approach to learning paved the way for some excellent outcomes.

We are delighted that the vast majority of the year group were successful in their applications to their chosen universities. There has been a great deal of talk that perhaps independent education can act as a barrier to entry to the most selective universities, but this is absolutely not the case for us at Halliford School. Our personal approach towards each student’s application sees us working closely with the universities and our students. Judging by the excellent offers our students received this year, these universities clearly cherish what we offer them as a school, and we are thrilled to see our students head off to Birmingham, Nottingham, Manchester, Exeter, York, Portsmouth and Southampton Universities, to name a few. Other students are also moving on to highly valued and competitive apprenticeship courses in line with our mission to support our students in making the best next steps in their life journeys.

Headmaster James Davies said, “I would like to congratulate every Hallifordian warmly on all that they have achieved during their time with us, and we acknowledge that this is so much more than results and university destinations. Behind every grade is a story of endeavour and resilience in the face of two truly extraordinary years. There is also the very special bond that exists between our students and their outstanding teachers who have given so much. We are fortunate indeed to have such a committed and caring group of staff here at Halliford School. I would like to wish all members of our Upper Sixth every success in the future and thank them for their outstanding commitment to our school community. We are going to miss them a great deal!”

GCSE Exam Results 2023

Following on from an excellent series of A Level grades, our Year 11 students are to be congratulated on a splendid set of GCSE grades. These GCSE grades mark a stepping stone in their education journey, and we are delighted that the vast majority will be continuing into the Sixth Form here at Halliford School. We also wish to congratulate a number of Year 10 students who received truly excellent results across a range of GCSE subjects that they have taken a year early, which is a tremendous achievement.

Headmaster James Davies said, “As always at Halliford School, our broad entry criteria mean that measuring GCSE outcomes in pure grades fails to capture the journey of each individual student, and we are incredibly proud of many individual successes that we have seen today. Much as I would love to, I cannot highlight every individual success, and I stand just as proudly alongside those students gaining much-coveted grade 9s as I do those for whom a grade 4 is the absolute pinnacle of their hard work. Today is about celebrating individual successes. This is always a day with a range of emotions, but overwhelmingly today has been about pride as a school in the endeavours of this group of students who have been through so much. Supported by our dedicated and loyal teachers, we have all worked hard to offer bespoke attention and guidance at every stage. That individual support has continued today as we have looked at the next steps with every student. I very much look forward to seeing them progress through to our Sixth Form and supporting them on to their chosen university or apprenticeship routes. I know in this year group, we have an outstanding set of role models and future leaders who will continue to shape and develop Halliford School. In a world with so much change and unrest, I fervently believe that the education and values we offer our students will set them up for life, whatever their chosen path may be. They are an exceptional group of young people, and I wish them every success as they enjoy today and celebrate their many achievements.”
