Another Year of Strong A Level Results for Leyton Sixth Form College

Another Year of Strong A Level Results for Leyton Sixth Form College

Leyton Sixth Form College is celebrating an excellent set of examination results once again this year with an outstanding pass rate of 99%, over half of students achieving top A*, A and B grades or the vocational equivalent and an increase of 22% in those gaining the very highest grades. These achievements are particularly impressive given the significant changes to the A Level system with this year's cohort sitting the new, untested exams for the first time.

Principal Gill Burbridge said: "We are absolutely delighted with our results and I would like to congratulate all of our students and staff for their hard work and determination. Maintaining last year's A Level and Level 3 BTEC pass rate, which was the best of any London college, and seeing more students accessing the top grades is particularly positive given the increase in challenge in many of the courses following changes to the way they are assessed. These changes have placed more pressure on students being able to perform well under exam conditions at the end of two years of study. We are therefore delighted that so many of our students achieved the success they deserve. We have a high number of students progressing to study at top universities, art and drama schools and conservatoires as well as securing competitive apprenticeships and employment. We are proud that the College continues to help students of all educational backgrounds reach their potential and we celebrate each and every individual performance.

Gill continued: "Teachers at Leyton Sixth Form College are subject specialists and experts in their vocational field or academic discipline. Our students benefit from excellent teaching in state of the art facilities. We have high expectations and ambition for those that study here and we are committed to providing the highest level of education possible in a caring and supportive learning community."

Such is the College's long-term record of achievement that applications for the 2017/18 academic year are at a record high and places are limited as a result.
