Based in Stoke Gifford, BTE Academy is one of the UK’s University Technical Colleges (UTCs), which focus on the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Over half – 52 per cent - of all A-level grades at BTE Academy in maths/further maths were at A* or A while 76 per cent of grades in maths and science were A*-C, with a 100 per cent pass rate. Meanwhile 76 per cent of engineering grades were at Distinction* or Distinction, with 14 students achieving maximum marks across all units.
Principal Rhian Priest said: “I am incredibly proud of our Year 13 students, many of whom are among our first four-year cohort. There are some wonderful individual successes which are richly deserved. Every single university applicant has gained their first choice place with a significant number taking up their first choice apprenticeship. This group of young people and their teachers are the most conscientious and talented I have ever had the privilege to work with.”
