Cirencester College students from the Stroud district are celebrating after receiving their A-level, T-level and vocational results.
After two years of disrupted education through Covid, students scored top marks including 174 A-level A* grades, and nearly 90 per cent gained their first choice at university.
Former Thomas Keble students attained top grades in their A-levels including Charlie Waite who achieved A*AA, Annabel Brodersen A*A*A, Rosie Lightfoot A*A*A*, and Alexander Sweeney A*AA.
Other top scoring A-level students include Lewis Carpenter (formerly Maidenhill School) A*A*A*, Gabrielle Booth (formerly Katherine Lady Berkeley School) A*A*A*, Emma Bendle (formerly Archway School) A*AA, and Keira Smith (formerly Rednock School) A*A*A.
Tom Organ (formerly Maidenhill School) was one of many successful vocational students, gaining triple distinction star in uniformed services.
First ever T-level results
This year marks the first results day for T-level students across the country, and Cirencester College are celebrating a 100 per cent pass rate among its first cohort; with every student who applied to university securing their place.
Archie Curtis, formerly of Maidenhill School, acheived a distinction star in T-level construction. He 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 online 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.”
