Patchway Community College has maintained its record A-level results from last year, with 19% of grades in 2013 being at A or A*, and 70% at A*-C.
Some fantastic individual performances included Zainab Bello with three A grades in Biology, Chemistry and Maths; Leah Tozer with three As in Drama, English Literature and Psychology; and Abigail Edwards with an A* in Biology, A in Chemistry and B in Maths.
The college’s excellence in Art and Textiles continued, with 29% of candidates being awarded A* grades.
Headteacher Jane Millicent said:
“We are delighted with the results this year, which do credit to all of the hard work and skills of students and staff. We are especially pleased to see such great results over such a wide range of subjects. Art, Biology, Chemistry, English Literature, Financial Studies and Textiles all achieved exceptionally well, with at least half of students gaining A*, A or B grades.”
“It is wonderful to see so many young people fulfilling their dreams by being able to move onto university courses, apprenticeships or jobs because of their good grades.”
Abigail Edwards’ grades secured her a place at Bristol University to study Celluar and Molecular Medicine. Twin sisters Hannah and Amy Drew were both delighted to secure their first choice places, to study Interior Design and Nursing respectively. Aghnia Mardiyah was one of several students to win a place studying Illustration, helped by her A* in Textiles and A in Art.
In line with the national trend, around 50% of Patchway students sought places in higher education; others, including Joe Davies and Jack Capaldi, were delighted to secure apprenticeships in their chosen engineering fields.
