Pride in staff and young people as results are revealed
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.
