LHS celebrates A Level success! 18.08.16

Congratulations to all of our Year 13 students who have received their A Level results today.

Loughborough High School Year 13 students have produced another outstanding set of A level results. I am delighted for them all and hope they are very proud of their hard work and achievements. As a result of their success, they will pursue a broad range of challenging courses and careers, both in the UK and overseas. They leave LHS as confident, ambitious young adults, ready to embrace all of the new opportunities ahead of them. I am grateful to my staff and the students’ families who have supported them throughout their time with us
Headmistress, Gwen Byrom

Students at Loughborough High School receiving their A level results today will go on to study traditional subjects ranging from Medicine and History to the less traditional Equine Studies and International Politics and Intelligence Services.
