A Level Results 2023
Bristol Free School is celebrating another terrific set of A Level and BTEC Results. Despite these students being significantly disrupted by the pandemic over a number of years, they demonstrated exceedingly high levels of resilience and dedication and have been amply rewarded for their efforts.
34% of students have been accepted onto courses at Russell Group universities (a group of the most academically selective universities in the country) compared to a national average of 27%. 35% of students achieved at least one A* or A grade and all three of our students who applied for Medicine were successful in taking up their place. It was also another excellent year for performance in the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) with 100% of students achieving between an A* and a B. Finally, we are particularly proud of the significant number of students who will be in the first generation of their family to go to university or to study for a degree apprenticeship.
Head of Sixth Form, Mr Smith, commented that 'Pupils from Bristol Free School will be leaving here to enrol at university courses from Exeter to Edinburgh and in a diverse set of fields ranging from Architectural Engineering to Ecology to Aerospace Engineering. A number of students are also taking up lucrative apprenticeship and employment opportunities. It has been a privilege to witness the enthusiasm, passion and drive which has been applied by this cohort of students and we wish them all the best of luck as they set out on pastures new'.
