    2017 Results and Destinations of our Students

    We are delighted with the results that our students have achieved this year.  Overall, 41% of entries were awarded A* or A grades or equivalent, an increase of 13% from last year.  Furthermore, 63% of entries were awarded A*-B grades, 84% were awarded A*-C grades and 98% were awarded A*-E grades. Once again we have had a very successful year with our BTEC qualifications with 95% being awarded a Distinction* or Distinction, equivalent in UCAS points to A star and A grades respectively at A-level. Our excellent A Level and BTEC results compare very favourably with other local schools and colleges and demonstrate the real commitment and dedication of both our staff and our students.

    A key aspect of this success is the extensive support network that exists in the college, open to our students through the pastoral care system, made up of a team of specialised sixth form advisors, careers advisors and a dedicated sixth form teaching staff.  The college is committed and passionate about ensuring that every individual students receives specialised support and guidance throughout their time in the sixth form, to ensure they are fully prepared and informed of the many opportunities available to them when they leave. While we encourage all students to consider university as an option we also have a very successful track record for supporting students to secure high quality apprenticeships and permanent positions in employment in this ever increasingly competitive job market.
