Colston’s students rise to challenge
Published on: 26 Aug 2016
HEADMASTER Jeremy McCullough has praised students at Colston’s School following a strong set of A-level results.
More than a third of passes were at A* or A grades and one in four Colstonians achieved the equivalent of straight A grades or better.
Mr McCullough said: “These grades are the reward for a great deal of hard work from pupils and staff.
"Colston's students are a diverse and talented bunch and the school's holistic approach to education allows each individual to feel valued for being the best possible version of themselves. This includes a broad and stretching extra-curricular programme that strengthens academic performance. Well done everyone."
It has been another very successful year for university entrance. Notable individual successes include: Elliot Bloom, Josh Callaway and Alex Logan who secured places to study English at Exeter, History at Warwick and Natural Sciences at Bath respectively. Other students are headed to a range of universities including the Russell Group universities of UCL, Birmingham and Cardiff.
There were also noteworthy success among those students sitting BTEC courses, particularly Toby Shiu, Joe Grant and Tom Fisher.
