COLSTON’S Girls’ School is celebrating a fantastic set of A level results with many exceptional individual performances.

Three CGS students who all achieved perfect A/A* grades will be studying at Exeter University: Emma Hilton (A*A*A*A) will read Mathematics; Ellis Deeny (A*A*A and A in the Extended Project Qualification) will read Liberal Arts with study abroad; whilst Emily Craner (A*A*A) will read English.

They praised the help they had been given at CGS. Ellis said: “CGS has always been a school that I have loved and the teachers will never be forgotten.”

Emma added: “Having been here since Year 7 I have known some of my teachers for years and they have all been really supportive and have helped me to achieve my best.”

Almost one quarter of all results were A/A*, 58% were A*-B, 79% A*-C and 96% A*-D. 

Head of Sixth Form, Kerry McCullagh, said: “I am so delighted with this outstanding set of results. The hard work and talent of the students, with the support of our fantastic teachers, has led to wonderful grades. Whilst I am so impressed by the exceptional individual achievements of those with perfect A/A*s, we are very proud of all our students and especially those who have made significant amounts of progress over the last two academic years. For example, Hania Rasool and Rahma Duale smashed their target grades, both achieving A*BB.”

Other achievements include Emilie Farrow (A*AB and B in the Extended Project Qualification), who will read Fine Art at De Montfort University; Mawadah Mohammed Odeh (A*AB), who will read Law at Bristol;  Hanna Paul (A*AB) who will read Architecture at UWE; Monika Sandhu (AAA), who will read Forensic Computing and Security at UWE; Jodie Miller (AAB) will read Russian with Czech at the University of Sheffield.

Jodie said: “Colston’s Girls’ has set me up for life. I’m going to miss everything about the school after seven years! The Languages Department is fantastic - Miss Phillips has inspired me and made me so excited and optimistic about the future.”
