Our Results and 2019 leavers
We have a reputation as one of the best Sixth Form Colleges nationally. In 2019, 30 of our A level subjects achieved a 100% pass rate, with approaching 1 out of every 2 gaining a high grade (A* to B). A level results are particularly strong in sciences and creative arts, with many outcomes at a nationally leading level. The college’s BTEC students perform in the top ten percent nationally with around 90% high grades across a wide variety of vocationally centred courses.
Our staff are experts in their field, with many bringing industry experience to the classroom through their own experience or through their links with industry and Higher Education. Around 70% of our students progress to universities across the UK, including a higher than average progression 26% to prestigious Russell Group universities.
We are also successful in supporting applications to globally prestigious universities such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the USA. Equally, many of our students are expertly guided to progress on to employment or high quality apprenticeships with leading local or national industries. The college has a vibrant mix of students, coming to us from local, regional and international schools and this diverse mix creates an exciting atmosphere.
To supplement our academic programmes, our students are involved in over 50 societies, clubs and interest groups. Such as Culture or Debating Societies, to Anime or E-Gaming Clubs. Sport and Music are also thriving at the college and this gives a rich and broad experience to all who come here.
