Despite being a challenging year for all A Level students, Stamford College is once again celebrating some amazing achievements of students receiving their A Level results today.
Following last year’s 100% pass rate, the college once again celebrates 100% pass rate in 19 subjects with a 99.5% pass rate overall and 77% of those students receiving top grades A* to B. An incredible achievement which is once again an example of the hard work and dedication from students and staff throughout the year, in class and remotely during the pandemic.
The incredible team of A Level tutors at Stamford College are experts in their field and many are examiners too, which means they’ve known exactly how to prepare students when undertaking their mock exams to help ensure they walk away with the best possible grades this year.
Year on year, students completing their A Levels at Stamford College achieve some of the best grades nationally and the college prides itself on their experience in developing students’ independence and self-directed study skills. Over the last few months with students learning remotely, self-directed study skills have become a vital component in ensuring students continue to learn, complete their course work and get the grades they deserve.
Madison James who achieved A*, A*, A*, A in Computer Science, Maths, Further Maths and Physics said,
“Studying A Levels at Stamford College really helped boost my confidence and allowed me to achieve top grades. I want to thank my tutors for helping me believe in myself and achieve what I have today. I’m going to take a gap year but will be applying to university soon and hope that these grades will allow me to get into my first choice.”
Bryony Cutforth who achieved A, A, B in Maths, Further Maths and Physics said,
“Support from staff has been incredible and I’d like to give a special thanks to my tutor Paul who taught me in all of my subjects. Thanks to his support I’ve now been accepted at Cardiff University to study Mechanical Engineering.”
The college’s A Level Honors programme is a unique opportunity to help students get places at the best universities. It highlights that Universities and Employers look for more than just exam performance and strives to ensure students walk away with much more than their certificates. Which in this year, has meant more than ever.
Alongside their regular studies, mock exams and coursework students have also undertaken The Duke of Edinburgh Award, Extended Project Qualifications, The Cambridge Chemistry Challenge, Mock University Interviews for Oxford and Cambridge and have taken part in lessons from Auschwitz Writing Competitions.
Head of A Levels Marilyn Kennedy said, ”Despite these unprecedented times, students and staff have continued to work hard throughout the pandemic, delivering lessons and supporting students to ensure they can achieve their potential, and pursue the careers they want to at some of the best universities in the country. We are delighted to see students getting the results they deserved. I am thrilled for all of them.”
Sarah Young, Assistant Principal at Stamford College said, “We can’t deny it has been a challenging year but the results speak for themselves, we are incredibly proud of all our students and staff, and their performance today is testament to the dedication and commitment they have all shown to their teaching and studies. The outstanding support we offer will continue to be available for all students as they progress to their next stage in their educational journey, we wish them all the best of luck.”
