This success was repeated for students studying vocational AS Levels. The pass rate was 99%, with 78% of students achieving grades equivalent to A or B at AS Level.
Principal Angela Williams said: “Last year the college was in the top 15% of all schools and colleges nationally for student performance at Advanced Level. The college is confident that these brilliant results will move them into a top 10% position nationally, confirming Ofsted’s judgment that the college is one of the best in the country.”
