Ralph Shilcock also achieved an A, A, B in English, Politics and Law and an A* in his Extended Project Qualification. Ralph said “I started my A Levels at sixth form but dropped out after AS. College is a completely different experience, I’ve enjoyed my time here and want to say a big thank you to all of my tutors who’ve helped me along the way”.
Ralph is now off to study Arabic and Politics at the University of Edinburgh.
Janet Meenaghan, Principal of New College Stamford said, “We are very proud of our students who have performed incredibly well this year securing their first choice university places”.
“With 100% pass rate across 14 different subjects, the proportion of students achieving high grades has increased considerably, with a third of our A Level students achieving A*, A and B grades.  We wish them all well in their future studies.”
Results Day was a huge success for Jasmine Carter (22) who was awarded a £5000 scholarship to teach maths with a guaranteed teacher training placement at Lincoln University.
She said “I will miss college. It was a brilliant 2 years at New College Stamford. It has given me a future again. Before I came to college I was working full-time in a job I didn’t enjoy. New College Stamford has given me the opportunity to follow my dreams.”
Chelsea Sidorowicz has secured a place at the University of Huddersfield after achieving A, A, B in her A Levels. She said “I loved coming to college it was much better for me than school.
