It has been another record breaking year for Honiton Community College with students obtaining the ‘best ever’ A level results in its history for a second year in a row.

Students turned out today to collect their A level and AS level results.

Principal Glenn Smith said: “2014 has been another record breaking year for Honiton Community College’s sixth form. I am very proud of each and every one of our Year 13, and also our Year 12, students.

“In Year 13 we have had some individually outstanding performances that have contributed to the best ever set of results in the college’s history – for the second year in succession.”

One of the success stories of the day was Sam Johnson who achieved four A* in maths, physics, chemistry and biology, as well as As in further maths, environmental science and English literature at AS level.

The 18-year-old has been offered a place to study natural sciences at Cambridge University.

Year 12 students achieved their ‘best ever’ set of AS results in the college’s history, surpassing last years record breaking set of results. The college record has been broken on three successive years.

This year was the highest ever A* to E pass rate (97 per cent) and Year 12 results were up by 10 per cent on last year’s record breaking set of results.

Among the top performers

• Year 13

Matthew Cann: 2 Distinction*, and 2 Distinctions

Emily Bramhall: 1A*, 1 Distinction*, 1B, 1B at AS

Tom Haigh: A,B,B,C

Lauren Hole: A, A (EPQ), B, B,D

• Year 12

Zoe Jarrett: 2A, Distinction*

Mr Smith added: “Honiton Sixth Form’s reputation to produce excellent results improves year on year. Whether your aim is to secure a place on one of the best courses, in one of the best universities, in the country, or to spend another one or two years achieving qualifications that ensure you are ready to enter the world of work, our sixth form provides the academic rigour and the pastoral support to make success a real possibility for all.”

On behalf of the college governors Mr Smith thanked students, parents and staff for maintaining a positive and proactive partnership.
