Nearly half of Axe Valley students make the grade
NEARLY half of Axe Valley Community College students passed their A’ levels with A to C rates.
The college achieved a 96 per cent pass rate at A to E and 48 per cent at A to C.
The highest performing students were Jodie Miller, with two A*s and a B, Annabelle Searle, with A*, A, B and C, Scott Love, with two As and a B and Ryanne O’Shea-Smith, with two As a B and a D.
Head teacher Martin Smith Said: “We are delighted with the results. Many students have performed superbly and we are proud of their achievements. Our most able students have, in general, performed very well, with more achieving A*s and As than we had predicted and this is a positive sign.
“We believe that we can build on this solid set of grades and enable future year groups to perform even better.”
He wished the Year 13 leavers good luck for the future – whether it was at university, training or employment. He thanked staff for their hard work.
