Cirencester College students from Swindon have a lot to celebrate today after achieving fantastic A-level, T-level and vocational results.
After two years of disrupted education through COVID, Cirencester College students scored top marks across the board in all subjects including 174 A-level A star grades, and nearly 90% of students gained their first choice at University.
Students across the Swindon area scored top marks in their A-levels including Lucy Yendell (formerly Bradon Forest) with three grade As, Imogen Smith (formerly Bradon Forest) A*A*A A, Noah Parker (formerly Kingsdown School) A*AAA, Daniel Skoczek (formerly St Joseph’s Catholic College) A*A*A*A, and Katie Francis (formerly Ridgeway School) A*A*A.
A number of Swindon students are on their way to Oxbridge Universities, including Holly Simpkins (formerly Highworth Warneford) who achieved three A*s and an A and is now going to study Biology at Oxford. Adelaide Fasham (formerly Highworth Warneford) gained three A*s and will be taking a gap year before studying History at Cambridge. Tessa Armstrong (formerly Highworth Warneford) achieved three A*s and an A and is going to study at Keble College at Oxford. Madi Read (formerly Dorcan School) is also heading to Oxford, after gaining three grade As.
Vocational grades were also high for students across Swindon, with Libby Griffiths (formerly Bradon Forest) achieving distinction stars in Sport and Exercise Science and Human Biology. Joshua Harper (formerly Kingsdown School) gained a triple distinction star in Uniformed Services, and Erin Henley (formerly Bradon Forest) got a triple distinction star in Health and Social Care.
This year marks the first results day for T-level students across the country, and Cirencester College are celebrating a 100% pass rate among its first cohort of T-level students; with every student who applied to university securing their place.
Archie Curtis is one of the many T-level success stories after achieving a distinction star in T-level Construction. Archie has recently started a higher apprenticeship for local building company E G Carters, whilst studying for a HNC at Gloucester.
College Principal Jim Grant said, “I’m delighted with these results across the board. From Maths to Performing Arts, all our courses have done really well. Results are ahead of where we were in 2019 and in many cases, better than Teacher Assessed Grades of the last two years. A-levels are particularly strong with many subjects getting their best ever results. In several cases lecturers have really gone the extra mile to gain outstanding results.
All this is a great testimony to the students themselves for whom, this was their first experience of exams and who were determined to show what they could do. It also reflects well on teachers, tutors, support teams and parents who have supported our students positively through the difficult Covid period of on-line learning. My thanks also have to go to all our associated employers who enabled all our T-level students to complete their placements. This particular group of students were pioneers in these new technical qualifications. All passed and all have the grades to go onto their chosen university or careers.”
