Students and staff at Commonweal sixth form are celebrating another year of success at A-level. 

The school's largest cohort of post-16 students achieved an A*-E pass rate of 99.5 per cent with 45 per cent of those grades being A*-B. 

One of the successful students was Isabelle Harding, who achieved an A in geography, a B in biology and a C in maths, who said: "I'm one mark off a B in maths so i'm definitely going to get that re-marked. 

"College has been okay, it's a bit of a jump up from GCSE's to A-level, especially going from old GCSE's to new A-levels but overall I found it alright. 

"Next I'll be heading to Southampton University to do environmental science."

James Matcham, head of sixth form, said: "We are all delighted with the achievement of our students and particularly the high standards achieved across such a wide range of subject areas. 

"Our goal has always been to provide the highest standards of education at 16-18 and make a significant contribution to increasing the number of students from the Swindon area progressing into higher education - these results represent another significant steap towards those goals."
