Sixth Form students at Gordano School have been celebrating the best A Level results in the school’s history, with record percentages of A*, A and B grades. 32% of grades were at A* or A grade, 59% of grades were at A*-B and 82% at A*-C. It was also another exceptional year overall for Level 3 vocational qualifications (BTECs and Cambridge Technicals), with over 90% of grades being achieved at Distinction or Distinction*.
A host of exceptional performances included ten students with at least two A*s and one A, and 22 students with 3 As or better. Top of the pile was Eve Pope who secured four A*s and who will study Natural Sciences at Cambridge University. Amy Jackson secured three A*s (and another in her Extended Project Qualification) and will study Earth Sciences at Oxford University. Bethan Collins, Will Gullock, Emon Islam, Lydia Moxham, Ewan Nicol, Zander Snow, Harriet Wall and Dan Wring all secured at least two A*s and an A.
As well as at least three successful applicants to Oxford and Cambridge Universities, another five students will progress onto medical or veterinary courses. Jess King has secured a naval scholarship and a number of students have secured prestigious apprenticeships with leading firms.
Headteacher, Tom Inman, commented, “I’m absolutely thrilled for our students that their immense hard work has paid off to produce another brilliant year of results. Their unparalleled success is testament to the way that the students have worked so hard and supported each other so well as a year group through the challenges of the new courses.
There are so many success stories, and not just from the brilliant young people that grab the headlines. We pride ourselves on being a really comprehensive Sixth Form and it’s wonderful to see so many students meet and surpass their own personal targets, sometimes in very challenging circumstances.
This success is also significantly the result of the dedication of our amazing staff, as well as the parents of our young people who do so much to help and support.
Huge congratulations to all concerned and we wish them every continued success in their futures. There will be champagne corks popping this evening!”
