100 per cent pass rate at A2 is better than last year, says head
Melksham Oak headteacher Stephen Clark said: “We had 100 per cent pass rate at A2, which accounts to having done better than last year.
“Despite what looks like some changes to the top grade boundaries the students have done very well.
“That performance is all due to hard working students, supportive parents, and committed teachers.
"Every year it's wonderful to see the students so happy with what they have achieved.
"We had some impressive high-achievers, including Lucy Dobson, Georgia Newman, Polly Thompson, Alex Thomson, Emily Slatford and Nicholas Clark."
Matt Williams, 18, from Melksham, said: "I'm pleasantly surprised to get into uni, I'll be going to Bournemouth to study acting.
"I needed to get BCC, and got a BCD, but I had an email this morning saying I had got it, which was great. It'd really good to see everyone here together."
Jamie Collings, 18, from Melksham, said: “It’s good news; I got BCD and got into Plymouth to study history, though Bath was my first choice.
“I’m definitely going to have a few beers tonight to celebrate.”
Emily Slatford, 18, from Melksham, said: “I got three Bs, and I'm hoping to go to Bath Spa to do history. This morning was the worst part, but it's all good now.
"I found out this morning that I got in, but I didn't know what grades I got. I'll be going out with my friends tonight."
