SIXTH form pupils at Clevedon School have achieved another impressive set of A-level results.
It was revealed this morning (Thurs) that 40 per cent of all grades were set at A*-B, enabling students to pursue their ambitions to study at university or to embark on their chosen careers.
Nervous and excited pupils filled the hall at the Valley Road school to collect their envelopes and among them were some high-achievers, including Laura Jones, Georgia Longstaff, Josie Vickers and Anna Coleman, who achieved results which were all graded at A or A*.
The overall pass rate for Clevedon School students was 96 per cent and 18 per cent of exams were passed with A* or A grades.
