Delighted faces at Altrincham College today!
Year 11 students at Altrincham College were delighted this morning as they opened their GCSE results. There was much to celebrate, as the number of students achieving top grades 9-7 in English and Maths increased by 30% compared to 2019, and the EBacc pass rate also increased significantly.
Headteacher and CEO of the South Manchester Trust Kim Earle said: “Our Year 11 students, who have spent the majority of their time at secondary school under the shadow of the pandemic, achieved remarkably well. This resilient and determined body of students should be very proud of what they have attained.”
Ms Earle thanked staff at Altrincham College, whose "quality teaching has enabled students to reach their full potential."
Individual success stories include student Diya, who achieved an impressive eight grade 9s and two grade 8s at GCSE, and Anna who achieved four grade 9s, four grade 8s and two grade 7s. Both students want to study A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. They said: “we are so shocked, but very happy!”
Student Ali, who achieved grades 7s and 8s in the sciences and wants to continue these subjects at A Level, praised his teachers for their support during this ‘crucial time’. Upon enrolling at Altrincham College’s Sixth Form he said: “my dream of studying medicine at university could soon be a reality!
Daryna (left) was photographed in disbelief when discovering she had achieved four grade 9s, three 8s and three 7s, whilst student Juri (below), who aspires to study Law at Oxford one day said: “I really didn’t expect to get these results and I had prepared for the worst, but I am so happy!” Isabel expressed her delight in achieving grade 9s in both Chemistry and History, which she hopes to continue at A Level, along with Politics.
Our staff are looking forward to greeting lots of familiar faces in September when students return to join Altrincham College’s Sixth Form to commence A Level and vocational courses.
External students who wish to join our exciting, high-achieving Sixth Form are very welcome to contact Mrs Brennan, Head of Sixth Form, to discuss course options and availability: firstname.lastname@example.org
