On publication of this year's results, Principal Angela Williams commented "I am delighted with our results which are truly outstanding. More students than ever have achieved the prestigious A* A and B grades and record numbers have applied for and been placed at their first choice university. I am so proud of our students and their achievements which are a just reward for the hard work that they have put in during their time with us. These results confirm Ofsted’s judgement in May 2016 that the College is an outstanding centre of academic excellence and one of the leading Sixth Form Colleges nationally. In an Olympic year, we are also celebrating Gold!"
Huddersfield New College are delighted to announce that the class of 2016 have achieved an outstanding 99% pass rate at A Level, well above the national average.
The college, which was recently judged Outstanding by Ofsted, is also delighted to reveal that 40% of all A Level students left the college with an A*, A or B grade. There was also great news for students studying vocational A Levels. They achieved an outstanding 100% pass rate, with nearly 90% of students achieving grades equivalent to A*, A or B at A Level.
AS results were also a reason for celebration, with 93% of AS Level students achieving a pass grade, with more than a third of these achieving the much coveted A and B high grades.
This success was repeated for our students studying vocational AS Levels. The pass rate was 99%, with an impressive 78% of students achieving grades equivalent to A or B at AS Level.
Last year, the college was in the top 15% of all schools and colleges nationally for student performance at Advanced Level. The college is confident that these brilliant results will move them into a top 10% position nationally, confirming Ofsted’s judgment that the college is one of the best in the country.
