College celebrate 'unprecedented' year of A-Level success

Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College are celebrating an "unprecedented" year of success for its A-Level students. 

The college, which hasn't yet shared its pass rates or top grades, said in a statement: "We want to thank and congratulate our students on their resilience and dedication to their studies in what has been an unprecedented and unusual year. The efforts of our staff to help our students achieve their grades has been exemplary and reflects their exceptional commitment." 

Principal Mohammed Ramzan expressed his shared pride with the students and offered his congratulations to them and their families.

He said: "At every stage over their learner journey, our staff have worked exceptionally hard to support their students and I am immeasurably proud of their results." 

Among several success stories, Emily Hirst achieved 3 A* and an A in A levels and will be studying Earth Sciences at the University of Oxford.

The college described her as "an outstanding student" who did work experience at Nexperia, which gave her a valuable insight into her chosen career path. She also enjoyed the college's Physics trip to Jodrell bank and said that talking to the scientist there was "captivating". 

Meanwhile, Emily Douglas achieved a D*D*D in Health & Social Care. The college said she has "developed tremendously as a person since studying at college and is a determined student proving to herself that she can hold her own at this level and beyond". 

Emily is going on to study Forensic Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University.

The college said: "Staff are extremely proud of Emily’s progress throughout her time at college and wish her all the best for the future".
