Students and staff at St Mary’s Crosby celebrate A-level results





Students and staff at St Mary’s College in Crosby celebrated another excellent set of A-level results this summer. The ‘class of 2023’ recorded a 99% pass rate in the key examinations, with almost a third of students achieving three or more A*, A or B grades. Overall, a fifth of all passes were at the highest A*/A grades, and more than half were at A*, A or B grade. Almost a fifth of the cohort achieved three or more A* or A grades, an increase on last year. 18-year-old Sami Al-Machhoor achieved four incredible A* passes in biology, chemistry, maths and further maths. Sami is heading to Imperial College London to study medicine. Sami commented: “I’m really pleased with my results and would like to thank my family and my teachers for their incredible support. I owe a lot to the St Mary’s community for making me the person I am today – I’ll definitely keep in touch.” Head girl, 18-year-old Rachael Fraser, recorded A* passes in English literature and Spanish and an A grade in history. She will study Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Oxford. Two students who only arrived in the UK from Hong Kong with their families two years ago also achieved excellent A-level results. Jasmine Law, aged 18, recorded an A* in art and design and two As in maths and business. Serena Tang, 17, achieved an A* in maths, an A in biology and a B in chemistry. St Mary’s College principal, Mike Kennedy, commented: “We are very proud of all our students who have worked incredibly hard to achieve these results, despite the challenges they have faced over the last few years. “They deserve credit for their commitment, resilience and positivity, and we congratulate them on this excellent set of results.”
