THE number of A-level exams passed with A*-A grades at Clevedon School has rocketed this year.
With results papers handed out this morning (Thurs), the Valley Road school has seen a 10 per cent increase in the number of exams passed with the top grades compared with 2013.
More students than ever before have also secured places at their first choice university, apprenticeship or job. This includes the school’s highest number of Oxford University and Russell Group universities.
Head of sixth form Jeremy Newall said: “By every measure I am proud of all the students and their results.
“The reward is fully justified when you consider their hard work, the commitment of staff who teach them as well as the support they receive from home.”
