ST Brendan’s Sixth Form College, the largest A-level centre in the area, is celebrating another year of amazing achievement by more than 600 students.
The A-level pass rate was 97.4 per cent with two thirds of students achieving grades A*-C. St Brendan’s provides a choice of 47 different A-level courses. Vocational (BTEC) results were equally impressive with a 100 per cent pass rate.
Proud Principal Michael Jaffrain commented: “This is another fantastic year of results across the board, with our BTEC courses retaining their 100% pass rate and our A-levels having improved again for the third year in a row. ”
Some students are moving on to an exciting range of Apprenticeships, among them Lakshmi Sood from Winterbourne who will begin a Finance Apprenticeship with the Ministry of Defence (MOD).
Mr Jaffrain added: “I want to say a massive congratulations to all our students and to wish them the very best for the future. I also would like to thank all my staff for their incredible dedication over the past year. St Brendan’s is proud to be contributing to the educational success of Bristol as a Learning City. I believe that these excellent results will impact positively on the lives of the young people and the communities that they live in.”
