Huddersfield New College is today celebrating the successes of our Class of 2022 who are progressing to some unique, exciting and life-changing destinations following confirmation of their A Level and BTEC grades today.
Our Class of 2022 have secured a fantastic 99% pass rate for A Level and 97% pass rate for BTEC, with 62% of these grades being the much coveted high grades (A*-B or equivalent), placing the College in the top Colleges nationally for student progress on Advanced Level qualifications.
This group of students have had to overcome a range of additional challenges as they have been the ones most significantly affected by the pandemic during the course of their Level 3 studies, and the first group of students who have experienced a return to formal examinations since the pandemic began.
Our gallery below showcases just some of the amazing destinations our young people are celebrating securing today.
Marcus Smith-Connor, Principal comments: “I would like to congratulate our Class of 2022 on their results. Our graduating Year 13 students have not only had to contend with the usual pressure of exams, but also three years of significant disruption to their studies. Their resilience in the face of this has been awe-inspiring, and the qualifications they have obtained are opening the doors to exciting destinations and empowering them to shape their own future. Their hard work, resilience and determination over the past two years has paid off today, and will continue to ensure they excel in their future endeavours. Today is a new chapter for our outgoing Year 13, and I wish all of them the very best as they embark on the next stage in what we are sure will be an incredible journey!"
