Students at Patchway Community College celebrate their A-level results.

Students at Patchway Community College have continued their tradition of excellent A-level results, with 40% of A-level students achieving the top grades of A*, A or B. The overall pass rate rose to an impressive 98% with students of all abilities achieving impressive results.

The highest achieving student was Kyle Ashcroft, who studied four A-levels and achieved A* grades in History and Geography, an A in Psychology and a B in Religious Studies. Kyle secured a place at his first choice University of Durham to read History. He commented: “I’m really very pleased with my results and that all the hard work paid off.“

Ian Trevathen, Head of Sixth Form, commented:

“We always look forward to results day as it represents both the pinnacle of student achievement in the college, and also the start of the next exciting chapter in students’ academic or working lives. It is a testament to the hard work of the young people at the college that they have secured excellent opportunities for themselves.”

Headteacher Jane Millicent said:

“We are delighted with this year’s results achieved through the hard work of the students and staff. It is fantastic to see so many students fulfilling their potential and being able to move on to university courses, apprenticeships or jobs because of their good grades.”

The school’s GCSE results, published a week after the A-levels, were also celebrated with great excitement.

High achievers were Charlie Bennett with 7A*s and 4As, Harry Edwards with 5A*s and 5As, Chloe Hinett with, 3A*s, 1 Distinction*and 4As, and Liam Hopwood with 5A*s, 1 Distinction* and 5As.

The percentage of students achieving A*-C in English rose to 67%, with 53% obtaining A*-C in Maths. This was a testament to the hard work of staff and students alike, where, for the first time in many years, students had to take all of their exams in one sitting.

Headteacher Jane Millicent said:

“It has been fantastic to see students opening their results and enjoying their success. It was particularly pleasing to see English results improve strongly, despite all of the national changes. Students have overwhelmingly obtained the grades they need to continue to the next stage of their education and have all taken their first important step towards future success.”
