New College Stamford are delighted to be celebrating an outstanding 100% pass rate at A Level this year, with almost 50% securing high grades and the majority of students also securing their first choice university places.
The 100% pass rate sees every A Level student pass in all 17 subjects offered by the College, which is proud to offer one of the largest choice of subjects in the region.
Marilyn Kennedy, Head of A Levels at New College Stamford added, “The students and staff have worked incredibly hard and have got the results they deserved. I am thrilled for all of them, and am delighted to see that they can now go off and pursue the careers they want to at some of the best universities in the country. It’s been a fantastic day!”
Emily Hutchinson was thrilled with her results of A* A, A, A* in Biology, Maths and Chemistry and her EPQ. Former Prince William School student Emily is progressing to the University of Nottingham to study Chemical Engineering.
A career in medicine is also the dream come true for former Arthur Mellows Village College student Jude Campbell who was also delighted with his results of A*, A, B in Chemistry, Biology, and Geography.
He said, “All my teachers have been so friendly and supportive, especially in my goal to pursue a career in medicine where we have had tailored medical admissions support. It has been hard work, but worth it, and definitely rewarding.”
James Loughton who is celebrating after receiving top grades of A*, B, B in History, Media and English is off to work for Cambridgeshire Constabulary to complete his police training and qualifications.
