Details of this year’s Post-16 examination results for students at Patchway Community School show that 44 percent of all grades awarded were in the A*-B band (compared to 51 percent in 2017). The overall pass rate was 98 percent.

Students’ performance in vocational subjects remains strong, with 74 percent of all grades awarded being at Distinction level or above, which the school attributes in part to bespoke learning projects carried out in partnership with organisations such as British Aerospace, Airbus, Rowan Dartington and Rolls-Royce.

“Many students now have the high grades they need to get into the university degree courses of their choice and we are confident that we can sustain and accelerate this progress in the years to come. We would like to congratulate all students on their achievements and recognise our staff for their continued hard work and commitment.”

Subject highlights singled out by the school include:

  • In English literature, 75 percent of grades awarded were A*-B
  • One hundred percent of students were awarded A*-B grades in textiles and three A-level students have been offered places to study fashion design at university

Students at Patchway Community College have achieved record results in this year’s post-16 examinations.

Fifty-one percent of all grades were A*-B or equivalent and 80 percent were A*-C. The pass rate was 99 percent.

Headteacher Karen Cornick praised the hard work and commitment of students and staff:

“We are thrilled with this set of results! Our students have worked incredibly hard to gain these fantastic results and we are so proud of their achievements. Half of all grades were A* to B and this means that our students are going to top universities. Patchway Sixth Form is a really happy and successful place to study where it’s evident from results that students receive first class teaching which enables them to achieve the highest aims.”

Top achievers in the school included Emma Barrow, who has A* in sociology, A in history and Distinction* in health & social care, and is going to Bristol University to study education. She was delighted with her results and said: “I revised a lot and got loads of support from school.”

Three students will be going to Cardiff University in September, including Jack Hamblin who gained A* in psychology, A in biology and B in philosophy, describing the grades he achieved as “testament to the hard work and quality of teaching” at Patchway. He will be joined by Sam Hughes (AAB) and Portia Moore (AAC) who will both be studying law.
