The college was celebrating its best-ever pass rate – 99.5%
More than half of the students at the college achieved A*B grades – which means many are celebrating getting into the universities of their choice or securing their next steps in to their dream apprenticeship.
Harry Linkhorn achieved two A* grades in chemistry and maths and two A grades in physics and further maths. He’s now looking forward to going on to study chemistry at Imperial College London.
He said: “I’m really happy, I had looked at UCAS to check that I had got in before I came in to collect my results.”
“I was really nervous this morning – I thought I was going to pass out, but I’m so happy with my results. I can’t wait to start my apprenticeship – I’ll be learning on the job, which I really wanted to do. I’m on my way!”
It was an emotional morning for Madeleine Crosby-Wilsher, who was delighted to receive dream results which means she is rethinking her initial plans.
Her A* in law and two A grades in photography and sociology mean she is now looking to go through the Cambridge Adjustment process with aim of studying human, social and political science at the prestigious university.
She said: “I had no idea I would do so well – I’m really happy and hopefully I’ll be able to get a place at Cambridge through Adjustment.
“I’ve got the grades I wanted and I want to see my lecturers to say thank you. The support has been great.”
