Students at Patchway Community College secured the school’s best ever results this year with 56% obtaining 5A*-C including English and Maths.
The school says these results have risen by 14% over the last five years, and have doubled since 2006, with students’ individual progress across subjects being particularly impressive.
Stand out individual performances included: Edmund Smith with 8A*s, 3As and a BTEC distinction; Jordan Davies with 7A*s, 2As and a BTEC distinction; Kyle Ashcroft with 6A*s, 5As and a BTEC distinction; Asa White with 6A*s, 3As and a BTEC distinction; Connor Hopwood with 5A*s, 2As and a BTEC distinction*; and Charis Wilcox with 4A*s and 4As.
Overall, some 75% of students obtained five or more A*-C grades.
Headteacher Jane Millicent said:
“It was wonderful to see so many happy smiling faces this morning when students opened their results.”
“The most impressive aspect of these results is the amount of progress students have made during their time at Patchway, which is way above national expectations, with pupils of all abilities getting great grades that fulfilled their potential.”
“Staff, students and parents have worked hard together to make these results possible and should all feel proud today.”
The school last week celebrated record-breaking A-level results that saw 47% of entries achieving grades in the A* to B range.
