Students at Clevedon School collected their A-level results this morning (Thursday) as their time at the school officially came to an end.

Some 21 per cent of students achieved the top A*-A grades and will be starting courses at a range of universities next month.

The Valley Road school had an overall pass rate of 97 per cent this year – down from last year’s 100 per cent pass rate – and 74 per cent of pupils achieved A*-C grades.

The school’s head of sixth form, Jeremy Newall, said teachers were delighted with how students had performed.

He said: “They have every reason to feel very proud of their excellent achievements, and equally as impressive has

been the way they have supported each other and younger members of the school.”
