“These results are extremely impressive”, said the Principal Mrs Rachel Hutchinson, “and they are a true reward for both the hard work of our students and the high quality teaching at the College. A large number of staff across a range of subjects have been robust in tackling the new and more demanding specifications and assessment criteria this year. These impressive results clearly indicate the high standards of the College and demonstrate what our students are capable of. Many students have exceeded their target grades, achieving strong passes in subjects such as Science, with 94% of entries achieving strong passes in Physics, Chemistry and Biology.”
While at A Level students achieved 99% pass rate. Over 200 students achieved A Level grades with over 50% of all entries at Grade B, A or A*, enabling another group of talented students to progress to top universities. With these results the College continues to rank amongst the top Sixth Form Colleges.
30% of our university students are heading for top Universities, on courses ranging from Natural Sciences at Cambridge, Bath and Durham to Engineering at Imperial College, Psychology and Astro-Physics at Exeter, Economics at Cardiff, and Languages and History in London. 30% of all grades were A and above with 20% of all students achieving A or A* Grades.
Rachel Hutchinson, the Principal said, " We are particularly proud of the continued increase in the percentage of students getting the very high grades that are in such demand. These results are a reminder of the hard work of our students and staff, which means that our students are ideally placed to progress to the UK's top competitive universities as well as taking up exciting and challenging job opportunities."
