Staff and pupils at Preston’s College are celebrating after achieving a record number of passes at A level.
Around 200 students collected their exam results with the college announcing an exceptional overall pass rate of 99 per cent. Almost two-thirds of learners achieved A*-C grades – a 10 per cent increase on last year.
The class of 2014/15 also produced top class results in a number of subjects, with 100 per cent A*-C grades in Art & Design, Business Studies, Government & Politics, Graphics and Media.
The majority of learners will now continue their studies by progressing onto higher education, either at Preston’s College or university, or commence directly into employment.
These phenomenal successes come weeks before the new term is due to begin, which sees the college’s state-of-the-art £13m iSTEM Centre open its doors to a new real work skills curriculum.
Welcoming around 13,000 students each year, Preston’s College offers a mix of vocational courses, Apprenticeships and A Levels to ensure every student in Lancashire has access to their preferred subject and career choice.
Lis Smith, principal and chief executive at the Fulwood-based college, said: “Preston’s College is extremely proud of all our students’ achievements. These fantastic results are a credit to their dedication.”
