Stories from our international boarding schools

Congratulations to our 2019 A-Level students – Results from Oxford and Torbay!

The A-Levels are considered the top qualification among British universities. Secondary school students in this program are able to specialize in their subjects and often go on to great academic achievement in university. At EF Academy, we’ve watched our A-Level students grow confident in their subjects and in themselves. It’s through this assurance that our students have had such impressive results.

At Torbay, we are very proud to announce a 96% pass rate for students, with more than 50% of our students receiving top grades, the second-highest grades in the school’s history. At Oxford, there was an 84% pass rate, with 36% of our students receiving top grades. These high grades have put students in line to attend some of the very best universities in the world.

Students this year have places for Chemical Engineering at the University of Surrey, English Language at Swansea University, Urban Planning in Newcastle University, and Business at Hult International Business School.
