Colston’s students have again done very well in their Sixth Form studies and have secured impressive A-level and BTEC results. 

Thirty eight per cent of   grades were A*/A and 71 per cent A*/B. Twenty two per cent of students achieved AAA or better and 42 per cent ABB or better.

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

A number of high-performing students have decided to follow higher level apprenticeships and the school is delighted that Colstonians will be joining Rolls-Royce, Dyson and Grant Thornton.

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.”
