Students celebrate A Level results at The Cotswold School

Students at The Cotswold School have today received their A Level and Level 3 Vocational qualifications results. Their achievements are testament to the impressive commitment, energy, and enthusiasm that students have shown throughout their courses.

A third of all grades were either an A* or A, with over 60% of all grades either A*, A or B. At least 86% were awarded A*to C, with an overall pass rate of 99.8%.

Many of our students will now move on to universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Bath, Exeter, St Andrews, Leeds, Imperial College London, University College London, Manchester, Newcastle and Camberwell College of Arts.

Head of Sixth Form, Phil White, said,

“Congratulations to all of the Year 13 students on the brilliant results they have achieved today, which is a reflection of their hard work and dedication.”

“Thank you to their supportive families and to all of the exceptional teachers and staff at The Cotswold School, who have worked with such care and skill, going above and beyond, often providing extra work sessions after school and during the holidays on top of the great lessons they teach day in, day out.”

“Our students’ enthusiasm and commitment have been fantastic and they can now look forward to very bright futures.”

Will Morgan, Headteacher at The Cotswold School, echoed these sentiments, saying,

“Well done to all of our Sixth Formers on their achievements today – I am extremely proud of all of our students. Throughout their time at The Cotswold School they have shown great strength and resilience – not least having their studies interrupted by Covid and their results returning to pre pandemic levels – and their efforts have been rewarded with the great results that we have seen today. It is a testament to the hard work of our students and staff which has helped to achieve such positive outcomes.”

“We wish you the best of luck in your next steps.”
