Top Results for Harlow College A Level Students

HARLOW College Sixth Form students have yet again recorded a fantastic set of A Level results, securing an impressive 99% pass rate for the second year running.

Particularly strong subjects are Physics, Computer Science, Geography, Photography, Politics and Sociology, where 37% of learners who took the subject achieved A* – A grades, building on last year’s strong showing of the subject.

Students have again secured places at some of the country’s top universities including Sheffield, Bristol, Cardiff, Exeter, York, Durham and Bath.

Becky Jones, Vice Principal of Harlow College, said: “We are thrilled with our A Level results this year, improving on last year’s tremendous efforts. This reflects all the hard work that both students and staff have put in.  

“Students on the new vocational courses, that now include exams, have also performed really well. These great results allow our students to progress directly to university or to take up Apprenticeships as the route to combine their studies with employment. The core subjects of English and Maths have seen a rise in the number of students gaining A* – B grades and our strong Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) provision enables many students to progress into employment and higher study in Health, Engineering and Science areas, supporting the growth of these employment opportunities in the region.”

Robert Halfon, MP for Harlow, was equally enthusiastic: “I want to say a huge congratulations to all of the A Level students at Harlow College as they receive their results today. Once again, they have excelled themselves and should be proud of their outstanding achievements, with a 99% pass rate for the second year running. These fantastic results couldn’t have been achieved without the dedication and hard work of the teachers and support staff, as well as the Principal, Governors and parents – all of whom are helping Harlow’s young people to climb the education ladder of opportunity. 

“I wish every student leaving the College this year the very best as they go forward in their bright futures.”

Tracy Greenall, Head of Sixth Form, said: “Another excellent year of results reinforces our belief that having learners at the heart of the decisions made and creating personalised programmes for individuals where necessary, culminates in great outcomes. I am exceptionally proud of both the A Level staff for their dedication in providing a high quality learning experience, as well as in the learners for their determination and focus in achieving their goals. This is reflected in the diverse range of amazing progression pathways chosen by the A Level learners, including attaining places at various prestigious universities such as Bath, York, Bristol, Sheffield and Exeter.”
