Career 6 achieves 100% A Level pass rate

Career 6 is celebrating an exceptional 100% A Level pass rate across all subjects as students receive their results today.

Students have worked tirelessly both in college and online to overcome the challenges faced during the Covid-19 pandemic, with many gaining a place at their first-choice university.

Paul Lee, Head of Career 6, said he was “exceptionally proud” of the whole cohort, who achieved some excellent individual results as well as an overall 100% pass rate.

Libby Marshall has achieved two A* grades as well as an A in English Literature on our Teaching Academy pathway and has a place to study Primary Education at Bishop Grosseteste University.

From our Crime and Society Pathway, Courtney-Paige Smith achieved three A grades and is going on to study Child Nursing at the University of Hull, whilst Courtney Allen gained ABB and will be studying Psychology at our own University Centre Grimsby.

2021 has also seen an increase in students studying biomedical sciences, after taking inspiration from the work of scientists and clinicians during the pandemic.

William Jakins gained two Distinction* grades in BTEC Applied Science and an A* Medical Science A Level and will be studying Biomedical Science at the University of Sheffield, whilst Christian Carlile will be studying Biomedical Sciences at the University of York after also receiving a double Distinction* and a grade A in Medical Science. Both studied on our Health and Medical Pathway.

Also progressing into higher education are Erin Thornalley, who will be studying Criminology at Sheffield Hallam, and Georgie Hale, who is going to Bishop Grosseteste University to study Primary Education.

Paul Lee, Head of Career 6, commented: “The growth and success of Career 6 and its students has been phenomenal. We have developed pathways to allow students to gain the skills, qualifications and experiences to be successful and progress on to higher education.

“The results have been exceptional, with increased numbers gaining A, A* and Distinction* grades on our pathways. We are delighted with the numbers of students progressing on to biomedical sciences from our Health and Medical pathway.

“Our pathways are designed to reflect the demand in both industry and society, so we ensure we are equipping the next generation with the skills they need for their chosen career. It has meant that our students were able to be successful despite having to study with restrictions during the pandemic. They have been fully supported and equipped with the skills to effectively study and achieve their full potential.

“We are exceptionally proud of them and how they have worked during these unprecedented circumstances and we will continue to offer our wholehearted support as they progress onto their next steps.”
