this is a great testimony to the hard work and commitment of all the students and staff at the College and comes at the end of a great year for us. Regardless of what people say about A Levels getting easier we see how hard these young people have worked to get their results today. Many of our students will now be going on to university level study, some right here at the college! We are all so delighted with our fantastic results and wish all our students well for the future.”

Around 300 students choose to study their A Levels with the outstanding local college; around 100 students received their A2 results in the year.

Sarah Sargison was celebrating a clean sweep of top grades, achieving an A in Business Studies and a B in English Language and a C in Psychology. Sarah will now progress on to further study to become a teacher.
