Today has been a unique Results Day for students at Huddersfield New College. In previous years all of our students would have been invited to a special brunch celebration, so that we could hear more about their next steps and congratulate them on their hard work and today has been a very different Results Day for our community.
This year our students have been celebrating at home with their immediate families, and we have been relying on the power of technology to hear more about the exciting next steps they will be taking, and enjoying seeing family selfies!

As a College we were very proud to hear that this morning Noah Hudson and Jak Spencer (pictured above) have both have places confirmed at Oxford University. Noah and Jak underwent a gruelling interview process for their places and both now are looking ahead to their two week residential induction in early October.
Noah who studied Economics, Maths and History (A*, A, A) will start his degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics whilst Jak who studied A Levels In History, Biology, Chemistry, the Advanced Vocational A Level in Performing Arts and the EPQ (A*, A, B, Distinction* and an A) is undertaking Biomedical Science.
Recent HNC graduates are getting ready to take their exciting next steps, and despite the current very challenging circumstances have remained resilient and determined to achieve their goals.
Both Noah and Jak’s parents were understandably incredibly proud, sharing their delight in the phone call with College, and if you are a parent/carer of a student you are very welcome to share your pride via the links above too!
Noah says: “It hasn’t quite sunk in yet – I feel a mixture of relief and excitement at the moment but I definitely cannot wait to start now. It is only when you talk to people that it hits you how special it is to be accepted at an Oxbridge university. College was amazing in helping me get here, from the moment that I expressed an interest in going I had all the support I needed included a very tough mock interview with the Principal! Now I can relax and enjoy the family celebration.”
Jak says: “After a bit of a nerve wracking start to the morning with the UCAS system taking half an hour to log me in, I can finally let it sink in and the preparations can start for my first term! I'm absolutely over the moon about being accepted into the University of Oxford and extremely grateful to Huddersfield New College for providing me with the support I needed throughout these two years.”
