Improved A-level results for Abbeywood School

Buildings at Abbeywood Community School, Stoke Gifford, Bristol.

Students at Abbeywood Community School have achieved good results in their A-level examinations, despite the school being placed into ‘special measures’ by Ofsted last year.

Dave Baker, Executive Headteacher, today described the results as being “even better than last year’s best ever”.

From the 126 examinations entries, 25% were award A* or A grades, an improvement on the 21% achieved last year and close to the national average of 26.6%.

Some 49% of the entries achieved grades in the A* to B range, while 76% were between A* and C.

All entries were awarded at least an E grade, meaning that 100% of students passed all their A-levels.

Mr Baker, who is also the headteacher at Bradley Stoke Community School, commented:

“As things stand, most students who needed grades to go onto higher education or training have what they need. We are pleased with the overall outcomes and obviously delighted for the individuals who have matched or exceeded expectations and are now celebrating – there were a lot of happy faces in both schools this morning.”

The average point score per candidate at Abbeywood has increased from 648 in 2010 to 733 this year, while the average point score per entry has risen from 198 to 213.5 over the same period.
