A-LEVEL RESULTS: Stunning improvements made at College of West Anglia

STAFF at the College of West Anglia are celebrating this morning after its students achieved an overall pass rate of 96 per cent.

At the college’s King’s Lynn campus, A-Level students enjoyed a pass rate of 96.1 per cent at grades A-E, and an excellent 62.5 per cent at A-C, an increase of over 3 per cent on 2010’s results.

A stunning improvement in AS Level results saw an 80 per cent pass rate at A-E, up 13 per cent on last year, and 43 per cent at A-C - an increase of more than 8 per cent on last year.

David Pomfret, the college’s principal, said: “We are immensely proud of our student’s achievements.

“They reflect both the hard work and commitment of our students and the high quality of teaching and learning in our college. I would like to congratulate all our students and staff on their success.

“We are also delighted with the 14 subjects that achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, this, coupled with the majority of our A-Level students attaining higher A-C grades, means that more of them will be accepted into their first choice college or university.”

The Wisbech Partnership between COWA’s Isle Campus and Thomas Clarkson Community College also showed overall pass rate improvement.
