Exceptional A-level results at Treviglas Community College

Thursday 13th August 2015

Students, parents and staff were all excited at Treviglas Community College as students collected their exam results today. Michelle Dunleavy, Deputy Head at Treviglas Community College said: “We are so delighted that our students have been rewarded with the grades they deserve following all the hard work they have put into their studies during their time with us in our Post 16”.

Treviglas students excelled in the subject areas they studied with over half attaining top grades (A*-B) in accountancy, biology, chemistry, performing arts and science.  28 subjects saw a 100 per cent pass rate, which contributed to the college’s overall 98% per cent pass rate.  Karen Batten gained two As and a B in mathematics, biology and chemistry and Robert Doughty gained an A*, A and Distinction* in mathematics, accountancy and business.

Vocational courses returned exceptional results and 100% of students studying health and social care, business, public services and travel and tourism attained the equivalent of A*-B grades. There were particular successes for nineteen of our students who each attained the equivalent of three A*-A grades in their vocational subjects.

Sandra Stephens, Director of Post 16 Studies at Treviglas Community College, said: “I am so proud of our students gaining these results. I am particularly pleased with the number of students who will use their success today to follow their aspiration to take university courses. These include Gigi Wierzbicki who will be taking up the offer of a place to study Creative Writing and Publishing at Bath Spa University; Clarisse Old hopes to follow her dream to study Biology at Exeter University (a Russell Group University); Issy Priest will be able to take up her place to study Equine Science and Management at Hartbury; Charlie Rogers, a successful student of our unique Technicians’ Academy will take his A* grades in ICT to study Computer Systems and Networking at Plymouth University and Curtis Upton, a student who travelled from his home in Kent to join our Surf Academy, will return closer to home with his four A* grades, to study Sports Development and Coaching at the University of Bournemouth.  They are among the many happy students who have had their university places confirmed today, while others have been successful in finding apprenticeships and employment. I heartily congratulate both the students and staff on these results and thank their families for all their support.”
