Students at The Cheadle College and Marple Sixth Form College have celebrated another year of excellent results.
A-level and Advanced Vocational qualification results have maintained an upward trend of success and achievement for the past five years at the college.
Eighty seven students achieved either triple distinction * on vocational courses or three or more A-levels at A* or A.
A-level achievement of over 98 per cent, and with 20 subjects across both colleges recording 100 per cent pass rates, represents significant success in academic qualifications, whereas the 100 per cent achievement in BTEC vocational courses confirmed the college’s national reputation in this area, following recent success in the BTEC nationwide awards.
Commenting on this year’s success, Jenny Singleton, Principal and Chief Executive, said: “I am delighted with our excellent results this year, and is testimony to the hard work of both our students and staff.
“The high proportion of students achieving the very highest grades at A-level and BTEC allows progression to the country’s top universities and competitive higher apprenticeships.
“I would like to congratulate all our students and wish them well for the future.”
Among the high achievers are former Chapel-en-le-Frith students Hannah Owens and Ruth Berry, who achieved six A*-A grades between them.
Hannah gained A*s in maths and psychology, and an A in chemistry, and is about to embark on a degree course in law and criminology. Ruth is off to Sheffield to study accounting and finance.
