TRIPLE A* A-level successes by Kasjan Paszkowski helped The Regis School achieve a record number of students gaining universities places.
Kasjan, 18, gained his excellent grades in maths, further maths and physics. He also achieved A in his extended project qualification.
These successes have secured him a place to study maths and acturial science at Southampton University.
“I couldn’t have done any better. I put in the work to get the grades.
“It was a case of coming to school, revising, going home, revising and going to bed every day for at least six months.
“But it has put off and made all the effort worthwhile.”
Kasjan has ambitions to become an actuary and calculate risk in a range of subjects to combine his love of maths with a steady job.
“Maths is logical,” he said. “There’s always a right answer. You just have to look for it.
With a subject like English, there’s no final answer.”
Kasjan’s results formed part of the strongest seen at the school in Westloats Lane in Bognor Regis.
A total of 54 of its A-level students, or two-thirds of the 80 sixth formers, have gained university places.
Congratulating the students, the school’s assistant principal and head of sixth form, Connie James, said: “I am so, so proud of all they have achieved.
“Their hard work and dedication has been well rewarded. They will be sorely missed by me, the sixth form team and their teachers, but we all know they will go on to do brilliant things at their chosen universities and apprenticeship placements.”
The school’s strongest results also included Nafsin Uddin, 18. She achieved an A* in sociology, A in history, B in biology and A in her extended professional qualification.
She is going on to study social anthropology at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
“I am ecstatic about my results. I am looking forward to my next studies at university in my field of interest.
“I am really sad to leave The Regis School as it has really helped me to get my grades.”
Another of the school’s students with the strongest results was Morgan Bryant, 18, with A* maths, A chemistry and B biology to enable him to study pharmacology at university in Bristol.
“I feel over the moon. My results were a surprise in some areas and I am now really looking forward to studying pharmacology next year.”
In all, 43 per cent of the grades gained were awarded A*-B, a rise of seven per cent on last year, and 70 per cent were A*-C, for an even bigger rise of 12 per cent.
Vocational results at the school were equally strong.
