North Bristol Post 16 Centre recorded a strong set of A-level results this year as students overcame the challenges of the ‘post-Covid’ era.
Directors Aimi Potter (Cotham School) and Owen Tiplady (Redland Green School) said: “We could not be more proud of this year group. Against a national backdrop of uncertainty and disruption they have worked hard with their teachers to achieve amazing results.
“As always, we also celebrate the immeasurable personal achievements of our young people over the past two years. This cohort of students leaves us not only with their hard earned qualifications, but also a developed and confident sense of themselves and their place in the world.
“Every set of grades represents a personal challenge overcome, from our seven students who move on to Oxford and Cambridge Universities, to those moving into competitive apprenticeships in law, business and engineering – everyone has something to be proud of”.
RGS head Ben Houghton added: “This was a year group whose secondary school education was significantly impacted due to the Covid pandemic and for them to achieve the results they have done is testament to their hard work and perseverance.
“Well over half of all grades achieved by RGS students were at a B or above which is stark contrast to the national trend for a drop in students achieve top grade passes this year.
“Being part of the North Bristol Post 16 gives our students the advantage being able to study a wide range of courses across two high performing secondary schools.”
