GCSE and A Level Results Summer 2023

Congratulations to all of my GCSE and A level students on their super results! After the anxious wait through the summer months, they can now move forwards into the next stage of their lives with confidence having secured the grades they needed in English.

Below is a selection of the lovely messages I’ve received on the GCSE and A level results days. You will see a range of grades below as I help students of all abilities to achieve their potential.

Each one of these students presented different challenges and pleasures over the time I worked with them and I wish them all well for the future.


Hi Jonathan

I got an 8 Lit and a 9 in Lang – who was expecting that? Thanks so much, three years of your tutoring paid off!

Hi Jonathan

We just wanted to let you know Caiden’s English results which we are over the moon with! An 8 in Literature and a 7 in Language. We can’t thank you enough for all your help.

Emily got a 6 in Language and a 4 in Literature. We are absolutely delighted with the results. Thank you so much, she would not have got there without your help.

Hi Jonathan

Morning!  I believe the boys both messaged you with their results. So a big thank you for getting them across the line!

Hi Jonathan

I just wanted to thank you for helping me to a B in English Language A level. From a predicted grade of D at Christmas you really helped me turn it around. I knew my coursework was good enough after your advice and the redrafting I did and this gave me a push at just the right time to get my focus right. I could not have done it without you. Especially all the work on Child Language Acquisition I had been struggling with! Thanks so much.

Will Stone


Hi Jonathan

I did it! The A in my Lit A level I needed to get me into my first choice university. Am so happy – thanks for all the help and making me learn my notes properly. But most of all, thanks for the encouragement and help with my writing style.

GCSE and A Level Results Success


All twelve of my GCSE and A Level cohort for summer 2022 have now received their results and, without exception, they have performed extremely well. All at least matched their predicted grades in Language and Literature and in over 90 % of cases the final grades were above those predicted.

I am absolutely thrilled for all of them and pleased too that such kind feedback was sent to me on results day. It has been a tough couple of years for these students and the rewards they have received for their outstanding efforts make everything worthwhile.

Below is a selection of comments from parents and students to give you a flavour of how important success is to each of them. I am really proud to have had the opportunity to work with all of them.

Hi Jonathan,

I got my A level results yesterday, and I got three A*s! Thank you so much for all of your help with my personal statement and interview prep, as well as all of our sessions over lockdown. I really appreciate it and feel like they’ve prepared me well for Cambridge!


We wanted to let you know that we can’t express in just a few words our gratitude for the possibilities and opportunities you have given to Aurélia to explore.  This journey wouldn’t have been the same without your professional guidance, all your care and attention.  We know it was going to be difficult to be home-schooled. We needed the best teachers. We feel very privileged and blessed to have found you😊

Not only did you help her reach the highest grade in English literature with a  A* as well as a  A in English in her IGCSE but you also gave her the confidence to move forward and beyond in her learning.


Hi Jonathan

I got an 8 in English Literature and a 9 in Language! Thank you so much for all your help and I’ve decided I’m definitely doing English Literature for a-level.


To Jonathan

I got a 7 in English language and 6 in English lit!!!!!! After getting 5 and 6s the whole of year 10 and 11!

Thank you so much


Hi Jonathan

Thought you would want to know that Charlotte got 7s in both Lit and Lang, she is so pleased!!


Hi Jonathan,

Killian got grade 5 in English Language and 4 in English Literature!

We are really pleased for him,  he is delighted. Thank you so much for all you did.

Kind Regards,


Hi Jonathan

I hope you are well. I wanted to let you know that Shaan got grade 9s in English literature and English language.

Thanks so much for your support and looking forward to continuing working with you in Sept.

Kind regards,


GCSE resits success!

Congratulations to all my GCSE English resit students for their super results in the November exams.

Every single one of them secured at least the equivalent of a pass, with a couple of students performing superbly to secure grade 7, or what used to be thought of as a low A.  I received some really kind feedback from one of their parents:

‘I wanted to let you know that William boosted his English grade and got a 7- we are all so happy!

Thanks again for all your help – couldn’t have done it without you.

Thanks again,
Kathryn Edward and William’

Congratulations to all my students on their excellent  English GCSE and A level results.

Some intensive last minute revision has helped significantly in a number of cases, with the final grades much better than those predicted by the schools after the mocks.  Overall, pleased to have helped so many students get the grades they need for the next stage of their lives!


Great results at GCSE and A level

note books

Great examination results all round!

A big well done to all my students for their great results in both GCSE and A level examinations this year! I am delighted that the hard work has paid off for all of them.

The wait for GCSE students eager to see how they performed under the new 1-9 grading system with AQA has been worthwhile, with 75% of the grades given to my tutees coming in at 9, the very top grade, and 25% of them at grade 8. I am absolutely delighted for all of them! Continue reading “Great results at GCSE and A level”
