There were smiles and celebrations at Clifton College as students received their A Level results with 36 students scoring only A* and A grades.
In total, 75% of grades were A* to B and 45% were A* to A. In Languages and Classics 100% of grades were A* to B while a range of subjects saw more than 80% of grades at A* to B, including popular subjects such as Economics (86%), Mathematics (83%), Further Mathematics (83%), Chemistry (82%) and Geography (82%).
Three students – Matt Coleclough, Constance Everett-Pite and Daria Sadowska – achieved four A*s.
Around 85% of students are expected to have won a place at their chosen university, including six students securing places at Oxford and Cambridge and one student winning a place at the prestigious Central School of Speech and Drama.
Deputy Head Academic Gilbert Simmons said: “Most subjects have now moved over to the new linear A Levels and we are really proud of the way students and staff have adapted to this change and risen to the challenge to excel across a broad range of subject areas.”
Head of College Dr Tim Greene said: “Our students have achieved an impressive set of results alongside their many other achievements across all areas of college life. I would like to congratulate them on the hard work and dedication they have shown over the past few years.
“It is fantastic to see our students prepare for the next chapter after their time with us, some of whom started at Clifton College in the Pre-Prep or Preparatory Schools, and we wish them all the very best for the future.”
