De­light as hard-work tri­umphs

Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

BALCARRAS School in Charl­ton Kings, Chel­tenham, was a happy place to be as it achieved its best re­sults since its sixth form opened in 1998.

Ninety-one per cent of the 185 pupils taking A-lev­els got A* to C grades, 70 per cent got A* to B and 37 per cent achieved A* to A.

It had head­teacher Do­minic Burke pur­ring with de­light to­day.

He said: “It’s the best ever in terms of A* to B and A* to C. We’re ab­so­lutely de­lighted.

“The stu­dents have done re­ally well.

“It was such a great at­mos­phere in the com­mon room - lots of kids ab­so­lutely de­lighted, go­ing off to their cho­sen uni­ver­si­ties.

“The stu­dents have worked ever so hard. They’ve been such a com­mit­ted group, won­der­fully sup­ported by their teach­ers.

“The qual­ity of teach­ing is cru­cial to ev­ery­thing.”
