We are celebrating a 99% A Level pass rate

We are celebrating another excellent set of A Level results.

The overall pass rate at the Sixth Form College is 99%, with 100% pass rate in 24 out of 27 subjects, including English, History, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Sociology and Psychology.

Nine out of 10 students achieved three or more A Level passes with a continuing increase in high grades.

Our students are now looking forward to starting at universities throughout the country, including Cambridge, York, Newcastle, Lancaster, Lincoln and Glasgow.

Outstanding individual successes include former Holy Trinity School pupil Rhys Proud, 18, who achieved A* in Mathematics, A in Chemistry and A in Psychology and is now going to Cambridge University to study Psychology. Former Horizon School pupil Brooke Fenton, 18, achieved A* in Chemistry and Biology and A in Mathematics and is going on to the University of Leeds to study Natural Science.

Our Barnsley Sixth Form College Principal Liz Leek said: “I am thrilled to be announcing our best ever results and I’d like to congratulate our students on their fantastic achievements. Everyone should be rightly proud of all these young people and the confidence and knowledge they have gained during their time at Barnsley Sixth Form College; and celebrate the bright future they have in store.”

We will be enrolling students for A Levels from Thursday 25 August 2016.
