Coulsdon College is celebrating its third year with a 99% pass mark at A Level.
Principal Brett Freeman is delighted and says this goes some way to explaining why Coulsdon College is the fastest-growing Sixth Form College in the UK.
He stated that, “The students’ excellent results shows that those who join us enjoy their time and work hard to ensure they reach their full potential. I want to wish all our graduating students well and I’m especially pleased at the growing numbers heading off to excellent universities and higher apprenticeships.”
Especially pleasing is the increase in students gaining top grades. A Level successes includes Sabrina Keating who received A*A*A and is off to study for a Masters in Theoretical Physics at St Andrews University; Isabella Mann gained A*A*A and is off to Nottingham University to study for a BA in History and Politics. Karyn Storey who received A*AA and will be studying for a BSc in Sociology at LSE. Michael Cook gained A*A*B and was offered a place at Manchester University to study Politics and Philosophy, but having picked up his grades, he has decided to take a gap year and review his options. Joshua Pentycoss achieved A*AB and is going to Birmingham University to study History and Politics.
BTEC success includes Stephen Gooch who gained triple Distinction in BTEC Information Technology and he has landed an Apprenticeship at Goldman Sachs with a sponsored degree in Technical Solutions at Queen Mary’s University. Shefiq Kyazze gained A* in his Maths A level, to complement his Double Distinction in BTEC Engineering and is off to Leeds University to study for a Masters in Chemical Engineering. Vinay Mistry gained a triple distinction in his IT BTEC Diploma and is keen to get started with his BSc in Game and Multimedia Environment at Sussex University.
Mr Freeman continued, “This has been an outstanding year for Coulsdon College; I couldn’t be more pleased with this year’s results. Staff and students have worked very hard and students have achieved the results which will act as their springboard to a successful future.”
“We do still have a limited number of places on some courses and I would urge students to apply as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. Go to www.coulsdon.ac.uk/apply2016 for application details.”
