Early indications for A-level results suggest that it has been another successful year for schools in South Gloucestershire.
Overall, schools in the area are showing improved results on last year. All schools have highlighted some special achievements and success for individual students, with many not only progressing to their first choice university places, but also in to employment and apprenticeships.
The Castle School (Thornbury) has recorded particularly high results and Chipping Sodbury School, Marlwood School (Alveston), Bradley Stoke Community School and Abbeywood Community School (Stoke Gifford) are also celebrating improved results compared with the previous year.
Leader of South Gloucestershire Council with Cabinet responsibility for schools, Councillor Toby Savage said: “It has been another great results day for many of our A-level students across South Gloucestershire and I am delighted to be able to share in the experience.
“Even though the results are still provisional at this stage, there is clearly a lot to celebrate and I would like to congratulate our students and wish them the best for this important next step in their lives, whether they are going on to university, a new job, apprenticeship or a vocational qualification.”
