New College Telford is celebrating another impressive set of A Level results, with an overall pass rate of 95%.
Jenny Nolan, director of sixth form and higher education, said: “We are extremely proud of our students – their success is our success.
“Against continued curriculum changes, to BTEC and the A Level landscape, we are proud that our headline results are showing overall improvements compared to last year."
The overall A Level pass rate at New College Telford this year was 95%, while success rates across the whole college's programme of courses improved by nearly 4% on last year.
Jenny added: “We have seen a significant increase in our BTEC and vocational results, with impressive pass rates of 98.3% – 58% of which gained either a distinction, or a distinction star. This is well above the national average."
A total of 89% of this year's New College Telford leavers are heading to university, with a further 7.5% going on to full-time jobs.
Among the first students arriving at college to collect their results were Kaydi Menary and Phoebe Owen.
Kaydi, who is going on to Lancaster University to study economics and finance, achieved one A and two B grades from her fine art, maths and economics studies.
Phoebe, who is taking a gap year before pursuing a higher apprenticeship in engineering, studies maths, further maths, physics and economics, and achieved two As and two Bs.
Jenny Nolan added: “Preparing our students for the next step is what we do, and we could not have achieved these results without the commitment and hard work of our staff.
“We undertake a personal journey with every student, where we experience the highs, lows, and sometimes frustrations. We allow our students to flourish into confident adults, ready for their next step."
New College Telford is currently in the process of merging with Telford College of Arts and Technology.
