AN impressive set of A-level results was achieved by delighted year 13 students at Nailsea School this year.

Cheers of excitement filled the school as students ripped open their results and celebrated with friends.

Out of the papers graded, 73.2 per cent were A*-C while 22.1 per cent were A*-A.

Among the top scorers were student presidents Oli Presland and Alice Keyworth who achieved an A* and A in mathematics, respectively, with Oli also scoring three Bs and Alice achieving one B and one C.

Twins Hollie and Jessica Atkinson were delighted to receive identical results in the same subjects with two A*s and an A.

Hollie is going on to Exeter University to study biological sciences while Jessica is heading to King’s College to do biomedical sciences.

Harry George scored three As and one A* to enable him to read mathematics at Exeter University and Sophie Williams also received three A grades. Headteacher Chris Wade said: “With the national picture being one of lower grades, it is great to see Nailsea students competing for and securing the top university places. “Of course, not all students achieve the highest grades, but they all work incredibly hard to achieve the best grades possible.
