STUDENTS and staff alike are celebrating at Rednock School in Dursley as they achieved their best ever A-level results.
A large number of year 13s at the school can now look forward to the Summer, knowing their first choice place at university awaits them in September as the number achieving grades A* to C rose by five per cent to 66.1 per cent.
Out of the 82 A-level students, those earning the top grades of A* to B rose sharply by 7.14 per cent to 41.5 per cent.
In addition, Rednock’s sixth form is now classed as in the top ten per cent of the country for its provision of maths and media.
Headteacher David Alexander was jubilant that grades had improved across the board.
"As far as I am aware the majority of students have got their place and can move forward onto what they want to do, which is obviously the important thing," he said.
"They have been really, really good results and we are very pleased. We have become far more concerned on making sure we are really tight on what the students need to do to get that result. We’ve really pushed the school forward and it has made a huge difference."
Star student Tom Bell, 18, from Springhill in Cam bagged four A*s in maths, further maths, physics and chemistry and is now on his way to Cambridge to study natural sciences.
"I was expecting a couple of As so this was a lot better, I’m really happy," he said.
"Now I think I’m going to relax and go away for a week or two before university starts."
Callum Mynett, 18, from Windsor Road in Dursley said he was looking forward to going to Sheffield University to study biochemistry after earning an A* in chemistry, A in biology, A in general studies and a B in maths.
"It was better than expected, absolutely. I didn’t expect to get an A* at all," he said.
"After university I think I would like to go into research but I am not sure what in yet."
Another happy student is Kathryn White, 18, from Cambridge who achieved an A* in English literature, A in maths, B in history and B in religious education.
"Now I am going to Manchester to study politics and modern history," she said.
"The English result was much better than I expected, I am really excited about going to university."
