Students from Barrow Hall College are celebrating an excellent set of results for this year’s A-Level students. The college is delighted to see the hard work and commitment of their staff and students rewarded as they wish all students all the best as they prepare for the next chapter in their lives.
Helen Stones, Head of Barrow Hall College said:
“Our Year 13 students have worked extremely hard; they have shown great resilience and determination to succeed despite quite possibly the most challenging build up to external exams that students have ever experienced. Despite the disruption to education nationally over the past three years, our students have achieved excellent outcomes and we are incredibly proud of them all”
Many students will continue their education at university, with the majority securing their first-choice place. Notable successes include Jacob who will study Philosophy at Cambridge and Maarij going to study Computer Science and Maths at Manchester by both achieving three A* grades. Thea will study Psychology at Leeds following her two A* and one A grades. Rhiannon will study Law at Lancaster, Ashvin will attend St Andrews to study International Relations and Grace will study Politics at Manchester after all three achieving one A* and two A grades.
Other students have also opted for degree level apprenticeships including Ethan who will be joining the Police following his successful results.
Students studying vocational subjects also excelled, with many gaining Distinction* grades including, Sophia, Kalisha, Caleb, Owen, Thomas, Harry, Lewis, Holly, Ben and George who will go to Salford University to study Business Management and Sports.
Newly appointed Headteacher, Gary Evans said
“Over half of the A- level grades awarded were the very highest grades A*-B, this is a phenomenal achievement. Students, parents and staff should be extremely proud of these results."
All the staff at Barrow Hall College would like to congratulate students and wish them every success with whatever journey they choose to continue on.
