THE Cotswold School celebrated tremendous achievements today as sixth form students received their much anticipated A-Level results.
87 per cent of students at the Bourton-on-the-Water school were awarded grades A* to C with 33 per cent awarded an A* or A. An incredible 21 per cent of students achieved at least one A* grade.
One student, Callum Haseler, opened his results to find he had achieved a spectacular five A* in Biology, Chemistry, Maths, Further Maths, and the Extended Project.
"If you work hard for what you want you will never be disappointed with what you have," Callum said. "The university place is what really matters and, for me, Cambridge is just fantastic in every conceivable way.
"Will I miss The Cotswold School? I'm really at the stage where I just want to get started, but I don't think I'll ever really forget the good friends I've made."
Saskia Woodd (CORR) also acheived incredible results and is due to celebrate with her family tonight: "I'm absolutely thrilled and delighted," she said. "I put in hours and hours of work and revision and I'm relieved it's all paid off. I can't wait to go to university to study something that really interests me.
Saskia was awarded two A* grades and two A grades and has won a place at the University of Nottingham to read Medicine.
Headteacher Will Morgan said he was incredibly proud of the sixth formers, the staff and the supportive parents.
"All have played an important part in the achievement of these excellent results. Our students thoroughly deserve their success through their commitment, determination and hard work. They are great role models for younger students."
Head of Sixth Form Phil White said: "There have been tremendous achievements in the sciences, the creative subjects, humanities and languages. Our sixth formers have excelled themselves, many gaining places on competitive courses at top universities."
