Head of Department, A Levels and GCSEs, Ginette Cox said:

“Our students have worked really hard and produced an excellent set of results. Those who completed their A Levels this summer once again achieved an overall pass rate of 100% - maintaining the high standard set last year. Students achieved eight A*s across the board in Maths, Sociology, English and Photography. Everyone has fulfilled their potential, this is testament to their hard work but also that of their teachers, who support them tirelessly throughout their time with us at college.

“I am excited about the next steps for these young people who will now be moving into their careers or further study at university. It was great to see students returning to college today and I wish them all well in the future.”
