Great results for Porches international school students

Students from the International School of the Algarve (EIA) in Lagoa gained high grades at both GCSE and A Level.

Following reports of the difficulties facing students looking for university places in the UK, the school was pleased to announce that all but one of their A Level students were accepted to their first or second choice university.

Former pupils will now be heading off for further education at the universities of Dundee, Birmingham, Worcester and Manchester, while others will be travelling to Canada, South Africa and Holland.

The overall pass rate at A Level, both in the UK and at the International School of the Algarve, was almost 98 per cent.

Some of the best individual results came from Rory McGregor, who gained two A*s and an A grade, and James Geers with one A* and two As.

Headmaster John Butterworth said: “It is very rewarding each year to see Algarve students succeed and move on with confidence to the next stage of their education.”
