This year, 65 per cent of students achieved five A*-C grades including English and maths – a rise of 18 per cent over the past three years.
Headteacher Chris Wade paid tribute to the efforts of the students. He said: “This year I have been so proud of the commitment and hard work that our year 11s put in.
“The maturity and work ethic they displayed has really paid off with some outstanding results. The dedication and tenacity of our teaching staff has also helped make such a difference.
“We are proud to have a can-do and positive culture in the school which really supports the students to push themselves.
“To improve our results each year is great, but there is still much to do and I expect to see these results continue to rise in the future.
“All the students deserve recognition for their individual results, at whatever grade, particularly if they achieved better than expected.”
Some of the high achievers include Jasmine Wood who achieved 12A*s, Fin Elskamp who got seven A*s and five As, Sam Schaeffer with seven A*s and four As, Natalia Jarvis with seven A*s and two As, Cat Coates with five A*s and five As, Meg Walker with three A*s and eight and Charlie Cayzer with three A*s and seven As.
Mr Wade added: “Whether they are staying on to the sixth form, moving on to another educational setting, or entering the world of work, the staff at Nailsea School wish every year 11 student the very best for the future.”
