A-level results

Exam results at Chetham’s are consistently excellent.  Over the past five years, 90% of A-level students and 96% of GCSE students have passed with grades from A*-C.  Many students take Music exams one year early, in Year 10 and Year 12, and some also sit Maths and Language exams early, depending on the ability of the individual student and the year group as a whole.  For this reason, numbers and grade distributions can vary year by year.

Around one third of the school day at Chetham’s is committed to music, and for this reason students may take fewer academic subjects than in other schools.  However, excellent teaching and facilities, and small class sizes help to ensure that their grades in these subjects are more than sufficient to support their future plans – whether musical or academic.
