A-Level Success On The Yorkshire Coast

A-Level Success On The Yorkshire Coast

Published by Karen Liu at 6:02am 15th August 2019.

It is A-Level results day on the Yorkshire Coast.

Scarborough Sixth Form College say they have had another year of 'outstanding' A-Level results.

This summer, the overall pass rate has increased to 99% with 52% of entries awarded an A*, A or B grade.

There has been another strong show in the number of A* and A grades too, with 6% of all entries awarded the top grade, A* and 24% A* or A.

Individual successes saw four students achieve a place at Oxford and Cambridge universities and an impressive 24 students who achieved 3 or more A*/A grades. 

Principal, Phil Rumsey, said:

"These are fantastic results for our students that will allow them to progress to the University of their choice or to begin employment and enjoy successful careers.

For some of our students who joined us with below-average GCSEs, these achievements today will be life-changing.  

They are thoroughly well deserved and just reward for all the hard work, ambition and determination shown by our students.

In particular, I would like to give a special mention to all of our staff who have worked really hard, with great focus and energy to enable and support our students to do their best.

The A Level results are complemented by another outstanding set of BTEC results where 68% of entries were awarded the highest grade of Starred-Distinction and 92% achieving at least a Distinction.

This again confirms the college as one of the best providers of BTEC in the country.

Our purpose at the college is to enable students to set their sights high and realise their ambitions.

We have students with a wide range of talents and abilities whose needs we are here to meet as part of the local community.

Students achieving such good qualifications and progressing to higher-level destinations is clearly a big part of that and we continually strive to achieve even more for them."
