The overall A2 Levels pass rate for students, aged 16 to 18, is 94%. The results show a significant increase by 7% in the top grades. This year, 25% of students, aged 16 to 18, achieved grades A* to B in their A2 Levels compared to 18% last year.
Heather Smith, Principal, The Sheffield College, said: “I’d like to congratulate our students on achieving a strong set of results and wish them all the very best for their future. I’d also like to thank our dedicated staff for their hard work and support.”
She added: “Our student community is very diverse. It includes high achievers and those who have not realised their full potential in education previously. They all thrive as a result of attending our College. Alongside examination results we measure their success in terms of how far they have progressed as individuals, and are proud of how they have developed."
“We are delighted that so many students are going on to higher education, apprenticeships and other jobs and careers related courses. We equip students with the qualifications they need for their future. Our new guarantee for new 16 to 18 year-old students starting this September takes that even further and is great news for students and employers,” she continued.
Ten subjects have a 100% pass rate. They are accounting, art and design, fine art, further maths, drama and theatre studies, physical education, geography, graphic communication, history and photography.
A2 Levels are the second year of an A Level. The first year is known as an AS Level, which is also a recognised qualification. Many students also get in to university with vocational diplomas that are equivalent to A Levels.
