It has been an extremely rewarding day at Cheshire College – South & West, as over 200 A Level students attended the College’s Crewe Campus to collect their results. The hard work and determination of both the staff and students has resulted in the highest number of A* grades achieved in the history of the College, marking yet another year of academic excellence and momentous personal achievements.
Achieving over 180 A*-A grades, the College continues to deliver outstanding results for its students, including 30 that achieved A*- A in all chosen subjects such as Economics, History and English. These extraordinary results ensure that several students will be continuing their studies at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities.
Among those celebrating was Brandon who achieved A*- B grades in Business, English Literature and History, and will be going on to study Politics and Modern History at University of Manchester. When asked about his results and time at the College, Brandon said: “I’m ecstatic. The College has been really welcoming from day one and the teachers have provided me with valuable feedback throughout my studies.”
Another remarkable achievement came from Ellie, who achieved A-B grades in Business, Sociology and Geography. Choosing to further her studies at Cheshire College, Ellie is pursuing a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business Management.
International student, Louis, will be attending King’s College London to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics, after achieving A*-A grades. Talking about his Cheshire College experience, he said: “I didn’t have the opportunity to study Religion or Politics at home in Hong Kong so I started my studies in those areas from scratch at Cheshire College. The teachers have been really supportive, and I couldn’t have achieved what I have today without them.”
Pursuing a Degree Apprenticeship in Digital Creative Design in September, A*-A student Ella, added: “I’ve had a great time at the College and they’ve always been supportive of me and my goals.”
Several students attended A Level Results Day with parents, guardians, and friends who shared in their success. Mike, proud father of Katie, who achieved A, A and B grades in her subjects and is going on to study Physiotherapy at University of Birmingham said: “This is fantastic. I’m really pleased. Cheshire College supported [Katie] every step of the way and have always encouraged her to do her best. Last year, it was my eldest daughter Sophie who achieved success at the College and went on to study at the University of Liverpool.”
Dhesi, Principal and CEO of Cheshire College, commented: “We are delighted with the brilliant results our students have received this year and it couldn’t have been possible without the hard work and determination of both the staff and students; many of whom will be continuing their studies at some of the UK’s most prestigious universities or heading for a range of Apprenticeship and full-time employment opportunities with industry powerhouses.
“This news tops off a great year that marked the fifth anniversary of Cheshire College – South & West and myself and the team are incredibly excited to continue to build on the positive impact the College has had so far on our students, with regional and national employers, and the wider community.”
Ruth Szolkowska, Vice Principal for Innovation, Curriculum and Quality at Cheshire College, added: “It’s been wonderful to celebrate our students’ achievements today but to also be given the opportunity to teach, guide and support each individual so that they can reach their full potential and progress onto exciting next steps.”
