It seems some time since our Sixth Form students sat their exams in June but finally the wait was over today when they collected their results. The college provided breakfast and the atmosphere was electric!
Some students already knew that their university place was secure as they had received an email but they didn’t actually know their grades so it was still a memorable moment for them. The majority of our students who have applied for university look set to gain their first choice place this year which is a credit to them.
Principal Sally Cox said “This morning has been a wonderful opportunity to share with students, parents, carers and staff the results of consistent hard work. To witness this being rewarded with good exam results is fantastic. They have reaped the rewards of good teaching. We are really proud of their efforts and wish our young people every success for their future”.
We had some exceptional individual performances, a notable result came from Alex Thornhill who achieved three A*s and one A. Alex gained maximum scores in both his Physics Exam papers and 99% in his Chemistry exam paper! He said “The teachers here have been very helpful and supportive”. Alex now moves on to study at the University of Newcastle where we know he will continue to excel.
Other outstanding performances came from Conor Vale gaining two A * s, two As and a B.
Eddie Lyons with two A* s and an A.
Lydia Weedon achieved A* and two As.
Annie Morris gained two A* s and a B.
Emily Lilley achieved three As.
Ben Barnes, Alex Mullineaux and Chloe Rogers all received A* A B whilst four students achieved A A B, congratulations go to Yasmin Filali Georgia Flude Jake Green and Billie Parnham.
Our top four achievers at AS level were Adam Green and Olivia Harnedy (four As) Charlotte Sarsby (three As and an A) and Head Girl Laura Heybrook (three As).
There are many many more great results that we could list but there isn’t room!
Chair of Governors, Colin Gore said “It’s been delightful to see so many smiling faces from students whose hard work has been rewarded with the results they want and needed. As a college we are naturally sorry to see them go but we know that they will do well in their future studies and careers”.
Congratulations to all our students and we wish them all the very best.
Keep us in touch with your next moves!
