Exam Success For Students As Results Show Significant Achievements Gained
This summer it has not only been the temperatures that have soared to record heights but also students’ exam results at Gateway Sixth Form College.
We have seen a 100% pass rate across 78 different courses, exceeding national averages and demonstrating that we have taken significant steps in meeting our ambitious strategy to transform teaching and learning and journey to outstanding.
Students from across all subjects at entry level to advanced level and vocational level 3 have achieved higher grades enabling more students to go to their chosen universities, and greater progression from level 2 to level 3 courses.
Gateway College is known not only for the excellent support we give to each and every one of our students, but also that final little push we all need to be better than our best! This year our A’ level pass rate is up 2% with high grades (A*-C) rising by 3.2% and in vocational subjects, such as BTECs, there has been a significant improvement to both pass rates and high grades with almost two thirds of entries being awarded a Distinction or Distinction* grade at level 3 (equivalent to A’ level) and level 2 (equivalent to GCSE).
Following their outstanding End of Year Show in June, students from across the Creative Arts curriculum have all achieved 100% pass rates and are progressing onto some of the UK’s top universities.
Results this summer also show that a student at Gateway College is 4 times as likely to pass their maths re-sit than at other colleges and for many, this is a vital key to opening the door to their future career goals.
Principal of Gateway Sixth Form College James Bagley commented, “These results have been achieved as a result of our recent improvements in the quality of our provision, high expectations, support for our learners, and the hard work and dedication of all staff and students at the College. We are proud to serve our local community and support our young people to achieve the very best results they can, enabling them to take a step closer to fulfilling their future ambitions and potential”.
