Webber Celebrates an Incredible 100% A* - C A Level Results

A2 and AS students from The Webber Independent School are rejoicing, having received an impressive best ever set of A Level grades. Months of hard work and dedication culminated in 100% of students achieving A* - C grades at A Level with 58% achieving A* - B grades.

This is up an incredible 19% on last year’s results as the school continues to go from strength to strength as the number one performing school in the new city.

Most importantly 100% of the students have successfully secured their first choice university place.

Head Boy, Sammy Oram-Jones was delighted with his confirmed place at Durham University to read Business and Management. "Webber has invested so much time and energy in helping me to  gain this top UK university place and giving me so many other fabulous opportunities along the way."

Our high flying Head Girl, Monika Vashani, was over the moon with her results securing her place at Bath Spa to read Human Geography, "Oh my goodness I can’t quite believe it! I am delighted with my results. I would like to thank the Webber staff and students and my parents for all their support to get me on this path for my future career."

Class Swap Day

This week children in the Pre-Prep and Prep have enjoyed class swap and transition days. This was a great opportunity for the children to meet their new teachers and for children joining Webber in September to meet their classmates.

In Mr Jeacock's Year 4 lesson the children created their own runes of their name as part of the History topic 'Anglo Saxons, Romans and Vikings'.

Chemistry at Work

Year 8 Science and Year 9 Chemistry students recently attended a Chemistry at Work workshop at the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centre. They saw eight different demonstrations, including experiments with oxygen and how snails, slugs and worms use chemistry to live. The students also learnt about how chemistry is used in the cosmetics industry and much more. The trip showed them how Chemistry is used in the ‘real world’ and that it isn’t just a subject you learn about in school. The students thoroughly enjoyed the trip and hope to go back to the Discovery Centre again next year.
