Another year of A-level Success at Castle School Sixth Form

Another year of examination success is being celebrated at Thornbury’s Castle School Sixth Form, where A-level results have again shown very high achievement.     From the 152 students, 82% of the entries achieved A*-C grades, with 31% of the entries obtaining an A or A* grade.

The highest achievers were  Joe Baldwin, Reuben Hendy, Luke Turvey and Sarah Tyrer who have all got 4 or 5 A-level qualifications, including  3  A* grades each.  In addition, Lucy Rowan achieved A*A*AA, while Pfeiffer Georgi and Megan McLaughlin both obtained A*A*A.  Altogether, 19 students achieved at least 3 A grades across their A-levels. 2 students – Lizzie O’Brien and Megan Allen – have won places to study Medicine, and Bethany Wong will be studying Veterinary Science.

Will Roberts, Executive Headteacher said

“The performance of students in our Sixth Form remains a very strong feature of the school, and we consistently see excellent progress by students of all abilities. These results are even better than the excellent ones last year;  I’m really pleased for the students, and very grateful to all their teachers for the outstanding support they’ve provided.”

Sarah Ockenden, Head of Sixth Form, added

“It has been a pleasure and a privilege for all of us to have worked with this talented group of students.  This excellent set of results is richly deserved and is testament to the students’ sheer hard work, their motivation and their resilience.  Success comes in many forms, and it is not just those students with the highest grades who will be celebrating today. Some have gained results well beyond their expectations, whilst others have made life-changing progress in the course of their sixth form studies. They are now able to take the next steps towards achieving their goals, and we wish them all the very best for their future.”
