CLEVEDON School pupils have been celebrating some outstanding A-level results this morning (Thurs).
Teenagers went to the Valley Road school to pick up their results after taking exams earlier in the year.
The percentage of A* and A grades this year has increased by six per cent and the A*-B percentage by more than eight per cent.
Three quarters of the grades achieved by pupils ranged from from A*-C.
Headteacher John Wells said: “It is a great pleasure to know that out sixth form students have achieved this level of performance in an extremely competitive field and will now be able to accept places at their chosen university or apprenticeship.
“I am pleased for all students across the whole grade range. They have worked really hard and the excellent relationships with the teachers and the high level of teaching and learning have secured outstanding results.”
The school’s two highest performers were Rebekah Hilder and Helen Price who both achieved four A* grades.
Rebekah now plans to study medicine at Leeds and Helen will study maths at Edinburgh University.
In an unusual fete for the school’s science department, three female students, Laetitia Adkins, Alice Coles and Sadie Peacock, will go on to study physics at Manchester University after all achieving A* and A grades.
