CHIPPING Sodbury School has added to its best ever A-level results with record GCSE results.

The school is celebrating 60 per cent of students achieving five or more A* to C grades including English and maths, the government’s benchmark for measuring achieving, compared to 56 per cent last year.

It is the second year in a row the school has broken its own records and comes after Ofsted inspectors said improvements needed to be made in achievement earlier this year.

The school has been named as one of three of South Gloucestershire's most improved for results with the number of students achieving five or more subjects at C or above five per cent above the district average.

Head teacher Gareth Millington said: “This is a solid performance in light of the national changes to the exam system this year.

“We are delighted for our students who have worked incredibly hard to achieve these grades. ”

Outstanding results included Beth Adams who scored six A*s, two As and two Bs, Ellen Vines who gained five A*s, four As and a B and Millie Woods who was awarded four A*s, four As and two Bs.
