Excellent A Level Results

Students in Year 13 at Chew Valley were celebrating an excellent set of A level results today. These results continue - and in many aspects surpass - the superb performance of Chew Valley sixth-formers in recent years, and provide a springboard for an extremely wide range of higher education and employment opportunities.

Chew students continue to be accepted into the country’s most competitive universities.  Toby Harding (A*A*A*) is heading overseas and will soon be studying at the prestigious Dartmouth College in the USA. Harriet Coombs (A*A*A*) will be studying History at Exeter University, while Jos Barker (A*A*AA) is off to Oxford University to study Earth Sciences.  Rosie Pope (A*A*AB) will be studying medicine at Manchester University. The number of students achieving A* grades is up on recent years, and the year group deserve huge credit across the board for the hard work they have put in throughout their Sixth Form studies.

Chew students are also looking to build their careers through the professional apprenticeship route. Chloe Morris has already started a management apprenticeship with Wessex Water, Amy Ford has joined Marriott Hotels, Jamie Harvey is with Select Electrics, while Chrissie Francomb is the latest Chew student to join Debbie Fortune Estate Agents - just 3 days after her exams ended! The student travelling the furthest is Ciara Banks who will spend this year in New Zealand in a programme organised by Young Farmers. As Headteacher Gareth Beynon commented “This is a wonderful set of results from a very impressive group of young people. Congratulations to them all!”
