Post-16 students at Patchway Community College have performed well this year, with a 96 percent pass rate and students achieving the highest possible grades in subjects ranging from English literature, sociology, psychology and business, to health and social care, applied science and textiles.
Headteacher Jane Millicent said:
“These results show the hard work of all involved and it is wonderful to see students gain the grades that they need for university places, apprenticeships and employment. The BTEC certificate results were particularly outstanding this year, with 47 percent gaining a distinction or distinction* and 89 percent a merit or above. I am proud of our students for gaining such good results and securing excellent opportunities for their futures.”
Patchway students have some exciting destinations and next steps ahead of them. Luke Viner, who was awarded two As and two Bs, will be starting a degree in computer science at Nottingham University, as will Dan Viner at UWE whose grades included A* in sociology. Robin Barratt who obtained two As, a B and a C is beginning a degree in psychology at Cardiff University, whilst Charis Wilcox who obtained an A* and two Bs will be heading to Birmingham to take a degree in costume design. Dan Tuck is going to study law at Winchester, whilst Scott Crane, with a distinction in BTEC business, has secured an apprenticeship in accountancy with the MoD.
Robin Barratt commented:
“I am delighted and relieved that I’ve got the grades needed for my university course.”
Fellow student Paige Coughlin added:
“I am delighted with my results that were better than expected; I had been planning a gap year and am definitely going to university in the future.”
