Honiton Community College sees another four per cent rise in A* to B grades.

This year’s A Level results at Honiton Community College are the best in recent years, it has been revealed.

The college has seen another four per cent rise in A* to B grades, which has risen by a total of 17 per cent in two years.

Also, the average points score per entry has risen.

Headteacher, Glenn Smith, said: “I believe students settle quickly when they join our sixth form, and maximise their potential as a consequence of our improved tracking procedures, as well as the excellent teaching and pastoral support on offer.

“We also provide a superb admission guidance and advice programme for Year 11 students going into Year 12 and this gives them the confidence to hit the ground running.

“Honiton Sixth Form is a great place to study and develop as an individual and staff here really care about their sixth formers’ welfare as well as their academic progress.”

He went on to add that he is looking forward to welcoming back as many of our Year 11 students who decide to tap into the success we are now delivering here at Honiton Community College.”

Student Tommy Shepherd achieved 3 A* and a B and will now go on to study Maths at Nottingham University while fellow student Sam Loescher, who will be studying Electrical Engineering at the University of Bath, obtained an A*, 2 As and a B grade.

Annabel Frost achieved 2 A grades and a distinction and will be reading adult nursing at Plymouth University and Jess Doe achieved A, B and C grades and be studying medicine at Southampton University.
