Head of A Levels Marilyn Kennedy said, "This is a great moment for our students, their families and the staff team who have supported them studying both in college and remotely through a very difficult two years. I am immensely proud of each student and their individual achievements. Their results reflect the resilience, dedication and commitment they have applied to their studies. They are a credit to Stamford College and their families and I want to take this opportunity to wish them all the best for their futures as they move to the next chapter.”

Sophie Cottis who achieved A*, A*, A* in Biology, Chemistry and Maths and is now off to study Veterinary Science at Cambridge University said, “Stamford College’s teachers and students were incredibly welcoming and supportive. I enrolled at the College as a mature student, but the College’s community naturally didn’t make feel out of place. Paul, Liz, Peter, Abdul, Cara and Jackie supported me thoroughly, the courses were excellently structured and felt easy to progress through. I hadn’t done chemistry in a number of years, but Abdul supported me very well when restarting.
The support I received when applying for Cambridge University really helped increase my confidence and the extra tutoring that was available helped prepare me to meet the entry requirements and pre-interview assessments.”
Rebecca Harvey who achieved A*, A* and A in Geography, Sociology and Law and is now off to study Law at the University of Sheffield said, “The tutors helped me to achieve grades I didn’t think I could achieve when I started college.
