LIVE BLOG- Excitement as Evesham and Pershore students open their A-Level results

Evesham Editorial 17th Aug, 2023   0

SUCCESS was on the timetable for students in Evesham and Pershore as they eagerly waited to find out their A-Level results.

Students travelled back to their colleges or sixth forms today to see if they got the grades needed to go to university, earn an apprenticeship or get their dream job.

This summer has seen a return to pre-pandemic grading in England, with some protection put in place to recognise any disruption students have faced due to Covid.

Students at Prince Henry’s Sixth Form are celebrating after achieving success in their A-Level examinations.

Headteacher, Dr Evans, said: “Our current Year 13 students were unable to take examinations for their GCSEs in 2021 and so this summer’s exams were the first external assessments they took.

“We are delighted with their personal achievements, and we are all very proud of them.

“Our Year 13 students have been a lovely Year Group and the resilience our young people have shown over the last two years to bounce back following the pandemic has been remarkable.

“They are all exceptional, inspiring, and talented young people and we couldn’t be prouder of them.”

WCG College Group 

College group WCG received A-Level, BTEC and City and Guilds qualification results for learners across its six colleges, including those in Evesham and Pershore.

A third of all BTEC students achieved the top-grade, triple Distinction, with more than half the students gaining the top grades in animal management and equine.

More than one-third of students also gained triple Distinction of above in agriculture and construction.

The college group has also celebrated a 100 per cent completion rate for Level 3 City and Guilds Technical qualifications, with qualifications including plumbing, beauty therapy and floristry.

City and Guilds Technical qualifications have been delivered from Moreton Morrell College and Royal Leamington Spa College.

Students receiving their results have completed courses in key areas which mean they can immediately have a positive impact on the workforce, including agriculture, animal welfare, computing, engineering, construction, health and social care, plumbing and many more.

Simon Philpott, WCG Assistant Principal, said: “This is yet another year of strong BTEC and City and Guilds Technical results across our college group, with qualifications being secured across all of our colleges in Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

“Skilled individuals are at the heart of the UK government’s strategy and our courses are designed to meet the skills needs of the communities in which our colleges are based.

“Students will now move on to the next stage in journey – which could be University or employment – and the results received today will give them a great platform to launch their future careers.”

James Stacey, Head of A-Levels at WCG, added: “We would like to congratulate all of our students on their A-Level results this year – they are the results of two years of hard work and dedication.

“These A-Level qualifications will provide a springboard for the next stage in their development, whether that is Higher Education, apprenticeships or employment.”
