A Level Success in 2017

Colston’s students have again done very well in their Sixth Form studies and have secured impressive A Level and BTEC results. While the headline figures make great reading, every individual grade has been hard fought for and our students deserve huge congratulations for all their hard work over the two year courses. 38% of A Levels were awarded at grades A*/A, 71% of A Levels at grades A*/B and the pass rate was 100%. 22% of students achieved AAA or better and 42% ABB or better.

The majority of our students have secured places on their first or second choice university courses and, importantly, through the innovative Future Leaders employability programme and via their study for Extended Project Qualifications, our leavers will be in strong positions to make the most of their next steps.

Indeed, a number of our high-performing students have decided to follow higher level apprenticeships and we are delighted that Isaac Butler, Elliott Dando and Jack Churchill will be joining Rolls Royce, Dyson and Grant Thornton, respectively.

Jeremy McCullough, Headmaster, said “While it is inevitable that some of the headlines will be grabbed by the very high scoring candidates, we take great pleasure in each student’s grades being the best that they can be for that individual. It is also very important to us that these young people will have learned so much more at school than how to pass exams. We wish them all the very best for the future.”
