Students and staff at Cromwell Community College are celebrating the success of A-level students as results are rolled out.

The results come after the government announced in the spring that exams had been cancelled due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and that student grades would be awarded based on official estimates from examination boards.

The college, which is part of The Active Learning Trust, has seen grades mostly in line with last year’s figures, with many students progressing on to their preferred pathways despite the unsettled national picture.

Jane Horn, headteacher, said: “We are so proud of our students for the incredible work, effort and dedication they have put in over the past few years and the way they have handled this extremely challenging time.

“Students who applied to university have all accessed their first-choice place which is testament to the tremendous work of our teaching staff whose commitment to helping our students in any way that they can has been inspiring.”

Particular student successes at Cromwell Community College included:

• Libby Birkett who completed four Level 3 qualifications and achieved A* in Biology, Distinction* in Performing Arts, A in English Literature and B in Chemistry.

• Ellie Moloney who achieved A* grades in both Media and Sociology and a B in History.
