RECORDS have been broken again this year at Cotswold School with 68 per cent of all A-Level grades being at A*, A or B.
Students at the school in Bourton-on-the-Water celebrated this morning after anxiously opening the envelopes they had been waiting for all summer.
Molly Crouch was overjoyed to discover she had achieved three A’s in English literature, physics and history. She will be going to Leeds University in September to study English literature.
“I found out earlier this morning that I had got into Leeds but it was still nerve-wracking coming in today,” said Molly. “I’m looking forward to going to live in a city and moving onto something more exciting.”
This year at Cotswold School 34 per cent of exams were awarded A* or A with nine per cent at A*.
Head of sixth form Phil White said he was chuffed to bits with the results.
“The students really have excelled. The school has had an extremely strong reputation over a number of years but this year we have performed extremely well,” he said.
Headteacher at Cotswold School Will Morgan said results day was his favourite day of the school year.
“It’s the culmination of everything we are trying to do at the school,” he said. “To see these results and see our students go off to university and start their careers as part of the work we do is the most special job in the world.”
Head boy Charlie Meyrick achieved an A* in History and three A’s in maths, English literature and general studies. His successful grades means he is off to Bristol University after he has taken a gap year working at a ski resort in France.
“It’s a relief,” he said. “Last night I was nervous. I did not know what to expect. I can relax now though I know where I’m going."
