Sixth Form students excel once again

Settle College students celebrated great successes today, marking another year of excellent academic results and personal achievements.  Many students achieved the top grades of A*, A and B with a 99% A*-E pass rate.

The majority of exam entries were in the A Level facilitating subjects, but as an inclusive comprehensive Sixth Form performance was also strong in vocational subjects, with excellent results in Business.  Notable successes at A level were in Art with 100% A* – B. In Geography 85% of students achieved A* – C and  100 % A* – C in History.

Katharine Tarbox, deputy head girl who achieved an A* in English Literature, an A in Drama and an A in French, said, ‘’I am so pleased with the results I have achieved and to get into my first choice university, the hard work I have put in and the support and help from my teachers has all paid off.”  Katharine is going on to study English Literature at the University of Edinburgh following a gap year.

Jack Pinder, deputy head boy achieved an A in Geography, A in Sports Studies and Distinction* in CTEC Business. Having formerly questioned whether to do A levels he has shown how hard work and determination pays off. He goes on to study Real Estate at Nottingham University and regardless of his unconditional offer has shown tenacity in achieving excellent outcomes.

Jack Burgoyne, who achieved an A in Chemistry and B grades in Physics and History, is going on to study Chemistry at Loughborough University, said, “Settle College has been fantastic over the past 7 years. The staff have always supported me and helped me to achieve my best; I shall cherish the memories I have made here and am looking forward to the next step in my education”.

Headteacher, Gareth Whitaker, said, ‘We want to congratulate all students receiving their results today and wish them every success in their future studies and careers. Students are going on to study a multitude of courses including, Building Surveying, Primary Education, Natural Sciences, International Relations and Politics, Aviation Management, Nursing, Forensic Science, Palaeontology.

These results demonstrate the outstanding efforts of both students and staff. We are also proud that our students contribute to the wider life of the school and the community. The skills they have learnt during their time at Settle College will be invaluable as they move on to new and exciting challenges ahead.   It is always a real pleasure to see such happy faces on results day.
