Redland High School celebrates another excellent set of A Level ResultsAugust 24th, 2014
Pupils at Redland High School are celebrating after another excellent set of A Level results.
The School has excelled across the curriculum with a 100% pass rate in all subjects and the girls have once again bucked the national trend by achieving outstanding success in the Sciences. Nearly half of all pupils sitting their A Levels at Redland High this year studied at least one of the three Science subjects (Physics, Chemistry or Biology) and over 75% of the grades awarded in these subjects were top A*/A grade. Girls hoping to study Medicine at university have achieved the required grades to take up their place.
Success was not confined to the Sciences. Of those studying Modern Languages, 65% of pupils were awarded the top A*/A grade while all girls studying Art and Design and 86% of those studying English Literature achieved A* – B grades.
Redland High School also offers the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), a skills-based qualification that develops the independent research skills of students and is viewed by leading universities as the qualification that gives a student’s application the edge. All candidates taking the EPQ achieved top A*/A grades for the third consecutive year.
Gloria Lau from Clifton, Bristol, and Madeleine Tickell from Bishopston, Bristol, have both achieved four A* grades, including the EPQ, securing their places at their chosen universities. Gloria, who studied Chemistry, Biology and Mathematics, will be reading Medicine at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge and Madeleine will be reading History at the University of York. Madeleine Taylor-Laidler from Redland, Bristol, will also be taking up her place at Downing College, Cambridge to read Modern and Medieval Languages having achieved 3 A* grades in English Literature, French and German.
Mrs Caroline Bateson, Headmistress of Redland High, congratulated all her students, “I am delighted that this year has been another outstanding year for the School. There is certainly no shortage of girls interested in STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at Redland High and we are proud to see our pupils excelling right across the curriculum. We wish them well as they progress on to the next stage of their lives.”Tags: A Level results, Ashley Down, Bishopston, Bristol, Bristol free magazine, community, Gloucester Road, Horfield, local, Redland, Redland High School, St Andrews, voice Back to news
