A group of Year 11 pupils at Colston’s School are celebrating outstanding success after sitting GCSE mathematics seven months ahead of the usual examination season.
Members of the top set, who took the exam in November, received their results on Wednesday. They gained 24 A-star grades and two A grades. The momentum gained enables pupils to start a mathematics AS Level statistics module alongside the rest of their GCSEs.
Headmaster Peter Fraser said: “This is a repeat of last year’s success, and everyone concerned should be congratulated on their outstanding achievement.
“In last summer’s GCSE exams, mathematics was the most successful subject at Colston’s, followed closely by English Language, English Literature and Drama.”
“One of our traditional strengths is to enable pupils of all abilities to realise their potential, and these first results of 2008 demonstrate the success that able boys and girls are achieving at Colston’s.”
