A Level and BTEC Results 2019

The North Bristol Post 16 Centre is a comprehensive collaboration between Cotham and Redland Green Schools with over 800 students studying a wide range of Post 16 courses.


The North Bristol Post 16 Centre is extremely pleased with this year’s A level and BTEC results, which reflect two years of hard work and effort by students and staff. Over half of our A level entries achieved a B or above, with 59 North Bristol Post 16 Centre students achieving 3 or more A/A* grades and over 80% of Level 3 BTEC entries achieving a merit grade or above. Young people who studied French, further maths, film studies, maths, economics, photography, physics, English literature and fine art at the North Bristol Post 16 Centre have done exceptionally well, with more than 70% of students in these subjects achieving a B grade or higher. Students have also been very successful in enhancement courses which are studied alongside their main BTEC or A level courses. These include the Level 3 extended project, Pre-U Global Perspectives Research, and our one-year core mathematics qualification. Results in these courses have been a real highlight, and demonstrate the breadth of experience on offer at the North Bristol Post 16 Centre.


Over 250 North Bristol Post 16 Centre students will be taking up a place at university, with over two thirds heading to their first choice institution and more than half moving on to a Russell Group establishment. Special congratulations go to our 14 students who take up their places at Oxford and Cambridge universities, and to a further 11 who move on to medical school. Other centre students have taken up places on higher level apprenticeships, art foundation courses or are pursuing employment opportunities in a diverse range of settings.


Headteachers Louise Blundell (Redland Green School) and Joanne Butler (Cotham School), and Assistant Headteachers Owen Tiplady (Redland Green School) and Aimi Potter (Cotham School) say:


“We couldn’t be more proud of this fantastic group of young people who are celebrating today. These results are a reflection of the determination of our students to achieve the very best they are capable of, with the dedicated support and care of staff at the centre."


“For more than ten years, our schools have been working together, as the North Bristol Post 16 Centre, to make sure that every student has the opportunity, support and skillset they need to reach (and extend far beyond) their goals.”
