Although grades nationally returned to pre-pandemic standards, HBS grades exceeded those for 2021, 2020 and 2019.These placed HBS above all schools (state and independent) in the country, according to The Times newspaper in its league tables published on 25th August 2023. Our A Levels were 6% above our 2019 figure for A* grades at 35%. 75% were A* or A and 91% were grades A*-B. 28 students met their Oxbridge offers (17 to Cambridge and 11 to Oxford).
