Congratulations New College Principal, Graham Clark, comments, “These are excellent results in a year where students have been taking the new, more demanding A Level qualifications for the first time. There are some outstanding individual results, and many New College students have secured their first choice university places in a particularly competitive environment. These results reflect the skills and talents of our students and are a culmination of much hard work and determination, together with a lot of support from family and friends. Congratulations to everyone concerned.” A Levels The highest ever number of candidates, 504, entered examinations in 39 different subjects. A 100% pass rate was achieved in an impressive 27 of these.
