Top universities await students
MANY jubilant teenagers from Backwell School are off to university later this year due to ‘excellent’ A-level results.
A quarter of sixth form students scooped grade A* or A, and more than 20 gained at least three A* or As.
Outstanding performances spanned a wide- range of subjects, including a creative and media diploma, in which Chloe Howse and Dan Leaman shined with Dan achieving four A* grades, and Chloe twoA*s and an A.
Head boy Matt John was awarded four A*s plus a distinction in the Advanced Extension Award, and will study Maths at Cambridge University, where he will be joined by Sarah Hill with her four A*s and Adam Mason with three A*s and an A.
Katie MacMahon, who got three As, and head girl Alice Wilcox with an A* and two As have chosen the blues of Oxford University.
