Students at Exmouth Community College have been celebrating A-level record-breaking results this morning (Thursday, August 16). Post-16 students from the college found out the results of their A-Level exams this morning with 97 per cent of them passing.

One in five students achieved A* to A grades and 70 per cent achieved A* to C. One student from the college has also received a place at Cambridge University to study English on the back of the results.

Nearly two thirds of students on vocational and BTEC courses also got top grades in Sport, Media Studies, Child Development, Health and Care and IT.

Simon Tanner, assistant principal and head of post 16 said: “This has been richly deserved by students and staff who worked with focus and determination throughout the year.”

Principal Andrew Davis added: “This is yet another fantastic set of results for our post-16 which, based on last year’s national data set, should once again place us in the top 20 per cent of Sixth Forms and Colleges in the country.”
