Gloucestershire Echo - - NEWS -

CLEEVE School bosses said “fond mem­o­ries” had been made a year on from the open­ing of its £5mil­lion new sixth form cen­tre.

The vice prin­ci­pal and di­rec­tor of the sixth form at the school in Bishop’s Cleeve, near Chel­tenham, is Ben Slat­ter.

He said: “The sixth form team will al­ways hold such fond mem­o­ries of our first co­hort in the new cen­tre of ex­cel­lence.”

He was de­lighted with the over­all re­sults, which saw 28.5 per cent of the 131 pupils get­ting A* to A grades. Fifty per cent got A* to B and 76.8 per cent achieved A* to C.

He added: “This year’s re­sults are a tes­ta­ment to the hard work of both our stu­dents and the staff at school who have sup­ported them over the two years.

“We are very proud of the stu­dents and the ex­cep­tional path­ways they are mov­ing on to, as well as the progress that many have made with us, both in terms of their aca­demic achieve­ment and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment, which is equally as im­por­tant to us when evaluating the suc­cess of the sixth form. Al­fie Howis was the top achiever at the school, get­ting A* grades in His­tory and Eco­nomics and A in Geog­ra­phy.

The 18-year-old, who lives in Bishop’s Cleeve, plans to go on to study Hu­man, So­cial and Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence at Cam­bridge Univer­sity.

Pate’s Harry Folkard who got three A* and is off to Ox­ford to study PPE, Beth Tay­lor who got three A*off to Cam­bridge to en­gi­neer­ing and Dan Cot­ton who got A* off to Ox­ford to study en­gi­neer­ing
