MANY students across the Yate and Chipping Sodbury area are preparing for university and apprenticeships after receiving their A-level results.

South Gloucestershire Council said the recently published exam results suggested it had been another successful year for schools in the district, with a number showing improved results on last year.

It highlighted comprehensives such as Chipping Sodbury School for having “significantly improved results” compared with 2015.

At Brimsham Green School, Yate, head teacher Kim Garland said: “Our students have made excellent progress and gained the qualifications they deserve.

“Consequently, they are able to embark on the next exciting stage of their careers, beginning apprenticeships and taking up university places.”

Ms Garland said in matching last year’s achievement, 13 per cent of the students were awarded at least two A grades and one B grade in subjects especially valued by the leading UK universities.

She said a significant number of students had also secured sought-after apprenticeships with fully funded degrees with companies such as Renishaw and Giacomini, at Bristol Dental Hospital and with the Ministry of Defence.
