From education to employment

Clarendon Sixth Form College smash A level record

Clarendon Sixth Form College students have gained a 100% pass rate in A levels this year. The class of 2017 has produced the best ever results for the college. With over 80% of students achieving at least one A or B grade at A level the Clarendon Sixth Form students can look forward to starting their university career or landing their dream job.

Jackie Moores, principal, Clarendon Sixth Form College, said: “We are delighted for our students. They will progress to universities across the UK including: Salford, York, Leeds, Manchester, Lancaster, and Liverpool. Some students will start their careers through Apprenticeships too. It is very pleasing to see students fulfil their potential and I wish them every success in the future.”

The successful cohort of learners include: Kelsey Batty (A*,A,B), Daniel Taylor (A,A,A), Rachel Lau (A,B,B), Abigail Jackson (A,B,B), Hadeel Mallah (A,B,C), Kendal Wilson (A,A), Nahima Begum (B,B,B).

Jack Cooper, former West Hill High School pupil, has achieved the grades to take the next step towards his dream job as a primary school teacher: “I have accepted a place at Leeds Trinity to study primary education. The teachers at Clarendon sixth Form College are really helpful. It is a friendly and supportive place to learn.”

The 2017 A level cohort of pupils is the first to complete a full two year A level programme since Clarendon Sixth Form College opened its doors in September 2015. The new building was built as part of the Vision Tameside project to provide an outstanding post 16 learning environment for young people in Tameside.

Jackie Moores said: “We are building the best further education campus anywhere across the region. The new building has supported great teachers in front of a group of willing students. Our location and easy transport systems link the college to growing employment opportunities in Greater Manchester. We hope, in future, that the students use their talents to develop the local economy.”
