Excellent 'A' level results
Excellent 'A' level results
17.08.2012 - 100% pass rate
Bristol Grammar School has had another successful year of ‘A’ level results with a 100 per cent pass rate. Students have demonstrated their many and varied interests and abilities in the results they have achieved this year.
In addition to our excellent results, five students have secured places at Oxford or Cambridge taking courses in Classics, Law, Medicine and Mathematics.
Future prospects for BGS students are equally diverse, with many students securing places at the UK’s top universities: eight are preparing to study Medicine; two to study Veterinary Science and two to study Dentistry, between them achieving fifteen A*s, twenty As, two Bs and three EPQ grades A* or A. A group of five students have secured places on the respected and sought-after Foundation Degree Art course at Weston College.
Particular individual successes include:
, of Bradley Stoke, who scored 100 per cent in his Biology modules and, overall achieved four A*s in Maths, French, Biology and Chemistry as well as an A grade AS level in Further Maths. James is going on to study Medicine at Cambridge.
He said: “I’ve been thinking about Medicine for a couple of years now and my work experience and volunteering activities confirmed that I wanted to work in an area that focuses on people.”
Nicholas and Michael Brook,
who each achieved two A*s and an A in (respectively) Spanish, Maths and Economics; and Biology, Maths and Economics. Both will be going on to study Economics at university – although in different places!
of Stoke Bishop

Commenting on his unusual choice of EPQ topic, he says, “I looked at some of the more typical subjects that others were studying and decided I wanted to do something more offbeat. I’m a real foodie so this topic tied in with my passion too.”
