The school also reports that 33% of all grades were A*-B – “amongst a larger and more diverse Year 13 of 105 students”.
Average points per student dipped to 683 (733 last year) because fewer students studied the Extended Project qualification in order to allow greater focus on their A-level subjects.
Individual successes highlighted by BSCS executive headteacher Dave Baker (pictured right) are:

Stoke Gifford’s Abbeywood Community School (ACS), which is linked with BSCS through the Olympus Academy Trust, has made further progress to consolidate last year’s status as one of the top post-16 centres in South Gloucestershire (based on average point score per entry) with an increase to 216 points per entry (213 last year).
Average points per student at ACS has been maintained as a strength (728 compared with 733 last year) and once again all students passed in every subject and 52% of all grades were A*-B.
Elsewhere, Patchway Community College reports that it has maintained its record A-level results from last year, with 19% of grades in 2013 being at A or A*, and 70% at A*-C.
More A-level reports and analysis will appear in the September edition of the Bradley Stoke Journal magazine, published on 7th September.
