Collingwood Celebrate Student Results
Sixth form students received their A level results by email early yesterday morning and it was then a day of celebration for the hard work and commitment of the last two years.
It is always a tense time for students, staff and of course parents, waiting to see whether those long awaited results are good enough to be accepted for university, college, apprenticeships or employment.
Collingwood were very pleased that just over half of all A level grades were A*, A or B and 80% were A*-C! Vocational results were even better with 77% of all grades at Distinction* or Distinction and 88% were Merit or better.
Staff at Collingwood joined students to celebrate their successes. The mood was very good with so many students accepted onto their first choice of university. Collingwood had more than 82 students with university places waiting for them and a large number with good employment offers!
We were very proud of the achievements from all our students this year and we have selected a few to detail below.
