Colston’s Girls’ School celebrates outstanding results

Colston’s Girls’ School is celebrating a fantastic set of A-level results, with many exceptional individual performances.

CGS has improved on its previous best performance in terms of the number of students achieving perfect A/A* grades, with over 20% of all results this year scoring A or A*.

Taking up places at Oxford in September are Danlei Zhu: A*A*A and A* EPQ (Mathematics and Computer Science); and Chantelle Richter: A*A*A and A* EPQ (Law with French Law).

Head student Zainab Adelopo: A*A*A will read Law with Hispanic Law at UCL; Naomi Richter: A*A*A A in EPQ will apply to Oxbridge after a gap year abroad; Olivia Wright: A*A*A will read Mathematics at Nottingham; Carla Hennell: A*AA will read Psychology at Bristol; Isabelle Jinadu: A*AA will read Combined Honours in Social Sciences at Durham; Kristina Brocklebank: AAA will read Physics with Astronomy at Southampton; Chelsea Kent: AAA will read Law at Exeter; and Yasmin Rees Kahn: AAA and A* in EPQ will read Medicine at UCL.

Head of Sixth Form Kerry McCullagh, said: “I am delighted with this outstanding set of results. The hard work and talent of the students, with the support of our dedicated teachers, has resulted in wonderful grades. Whilst I am impressed by the exceptional individual achievements of those with perfect A/A*s, I am equally proud of those students who have made considerable progress in the Sixth Form, for example, Amara Jimenez Canizares who smashed her target grades with ABB and a B in EPQ. Well done to everyone.”

Principal John Whitehead added: “I am incredibly proud of the students who have worked so hard and contributed so much to the development of the school in recent years. I have no doubt that they will go on to help transform their communities for the better over the coming years. Congratulations to all our students and best wishes for the future”.
