The A Level pass rate, for 16 to 18-year-old students, this year is 93% and 23% achieved grades A* to B. A total of 281 students sat A Level exams.
Heather Smith, Principal, The Sheffield College, said: "We transform lives through learning and enable our students to achieve much more than a qualification. They develop the skills to go on to apprenticeships, further training, employment and university level courses and I am very proud of their progress as well as their academic achievements."
She added: "The College has a diverse community. Some students progress rapidly, building on previous success. Others want a fresh start with us because they have not fulfilled their potential at other educational institutions. We inspire them to succeed regardless of their starting point when they join us. I want to congratulate them on everything they have achieved and thank our staff for their dedication and support."
The Sheffield College offers A Levels in 20 subjects including biology, chemistry, English language, English literature, film studies, geography, history, maths, media studies, physics, psychology and sociology.
