Academic Success

In the last externally validated results in 2018-19 the College’s A Level pass rate of 98.5% (grades A*-E) continued to be significantly higher than the national average (97.6%).

The percentage of our A Level students resulting in A* - C grades also continued to be above the national average. 76.1% of the 1230 entries by Worcester Sixth Form College students resulted in A*, A, B or C grades, compared to 75.8% nationally.

We were delighted that based on 2018-19 results we were the highest performing sixth form college (and one of the highest institutions overall) for achievement rates. This important measure of performance shows that our students are well-supported at College, that a very high percentage complete their courses and that they are successful.

The College’s achievement rate of 93.4% is significantly higher than the national average (84.7%) and the sixth form college average (84.2%). The DfE’s National Achievement Rate Tables are designed to provide students and parents with a tool to support selecting the best possible provider for their progression. Being the top sixth form college in the country means that more students complete and pass the qualifications they start with us than at other similar institutions.

Ed Senior, Principal, said:  It is testament to the dedication of our students and the commitment of all staff to ensuring the best possible outcomes for our students. I am extremely proud of the achievements of our students. They work really hard for their success and they get great support from their teachers and tutors throughout their time at College”.
