Students at St Columba’s College were delighted with their A-Level results this morning, with the vast majority of students securing their first choice university place.
Despite the number of top-level grades falling for a second consecutive year, the overall performance of the students was still very high.
Pupils in the upper-sixth scored an average of 340 UCAS points - equivalent to two As and a B.
Particular credit was paid to five boys who managed to secure more than 500 UCAS points: Sam Crawshaw, Edward Gamblin, Michael Taylor, Daniel Thomas and Jack Gray.
Sam Crawshaw takes his place at Corpus Christi, Oxford, to read Natural Sciences having achieved 3 A*s in Biology, Chemistry and Mathematics alongside an A* in the AS extended project qualification and the A grade in his AS Physics.
