STUDENTS at Gordano Sixth Form in Portishead have been celebrating yet another set of outstanding A-level results.
More than three quarters of the grades achieved by students were A*- C grades and for the ninth consecutive year, the pass rate for A-E grades exceeded 99 per cent.
These results were achieved by the largest cohort in the school’s history and the first to enjoy the new sixth form building at the school.
A record 27 students achieved at least one A* grade. A host of exceptional performances was topped by Matt March who achieved four A*s and an extended project A*. Matt is going to study engineering at Cambridge University.
Tom Clough achieved three A*s and will study engineering at Southampton.
With A* and A passes in their chosen subjects, head boy Adam Grey and head girl Eleanor Thornhill are both going on to study medicine at Oxford in October.
Headteacher Gary Lewis said: “This is another wonderful set of results from an outstanding sixth form. Our cohort has expanded once again and it is pleasing to see the number of distinctions on vocational courses as our students excel across a diverse range of study paths.
