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.

The governors, headmaster and staff at St Columba’s are said to be extremely pleased with the results and would like to congratulate the students on the quality of their results, a testimony to their talent and hard work.
