GCE Results Summer 2017

Clevedon School is celebrating outstanding results with their Year 13 students. This is despite an incredibly challenging year for the students and staff community in which they tragically lost their beloved Head of sixth form, Jeremy Newall. The students’ results are a fitting tribute to his enthusiasm and passionate leadership over the years. The Year group have courageously pulled together with almost half of the results at A* to B.

Head of School Jim Smith said: "We are delighted and immensely proud of our amazing students. They have worked extremely hard and achieved incredible success which has led to the vast majority gaining their first choices at University and competitively sought after apprenticeships. This includes several students who will be reading medicine or dentistry at leading universities."



GCSE Results Summer 2017

There was much to celebrate at Clevedon School with students opening envelopes that revealed some outstanding GCSE results. With much nervousness around the new, more challenging syllabus changes in English and Maths the school still recorded:
- 65% of students achieving GCSE English and Maths (9-4)
- 38% of students achieving GCSE English and Maths (9-5)
- 1 in 10 students achieving these at Level 7 or above (equivalent to A*-A).
Nine students achieved the coveted grade 9 in either English or Maths with Hannah Filer, Charlotte Loving and Lauren Sharp all securing two of the top grades. Twins Rory and Grace McGuigan had much to celebrate securing the equivalent of 9 A*/A passes each whilst Grace Cherry was celebrating 11 A*/As.

Head of School Jim Smith enthused, “These results represent the hard work of students, their families and the Staff of Clevedon School. I am delighted that the hard work has paid off and this includes some very special achievements at either end of the grade scale which is testament to the work around aspiration and inclusion”.

Commenting further, Jim Smith added, “I am particularly pleased with the English results that saw one of our highest ever pass rates including a very strong performance around the highest Level 9 award”.

Executive Headteacher of Clevedon Learning Trust, John Wells, “My congratulations go to everyone involved – not only has this year group achieved some exceptional results they also have embraced everything that Clevedon School has to offer. I am very proud of everything that has been achieved.”
