Liverpool students excel in core subjects as college celebrates 100% pass rates
Students from The City of Liverpool College have received outstanding A-level results in core subjects with 100% pass rates in subjects including Further Maths, Chemistry and French.
There were also 100% pass rates in Government & Politics, Philosophy and Art & Design, with an overall increase in high level grades compared to last year.
Hundreds of 16-18 year olds studied A-Levels at the college which offers A-level programmes to both school leavers and adult learners across the Liverpool City Region.
There were scenes of jubilation at the Learning Exchange campus on Roscoe Street from eight o’clock this morning (Aug 17) as students received their results.
The City of Liverpool College and the sixth form – known as City 6 – offers a wide range of GCSEs and A-levels in the Liverpool City Region.
This year, the college had an impressive 17 A-level subjects where a 100 per cent pass rate was achieved.
Among the other high-performing courses were ICT, history, media and film studies, with many of those studying creative courses looking to go on to further study or work in the region’s booming creative and digital sector.
Elaine Bowker, Principal and Chief Executive of the City of Liverpool College, said: “We’re delighted for our students and staff, who have worked very hard. These results build on the success of last year’s achievements and are a testament to the commitment of staff and the quality of the teaching environment we are able to offer.
“Science and technology skills are fundamental drivers for the Liverpool City Region economy as, increasingly, we are connecting with employers and businesses to offer our students a path into industry.
“There are many great stories of individual achievement emerging today and many of our students will be the first in their families to attain A level qualifications.
“This is so important because we are determined to play our part in widening participation in higher education so that people from all parts of the city region can experience a learning environment which is vibrant, encourages independence while giving support to students.”
Dr Katie Spall, Assistant Principal of City 6, said: “I and my colleagues are very proud of the students who have achieved top grades and worked so very hard to get them.
“It can be a big step from school to A-levels and college and our students have shown the maturity and determination to make that change. For us, it’s also about exposing students to new experiences, knowledge and contacts that may spark an idea for a new business, start-up or joint venture.
“I want to congratulate all the students who have received their results today.”
