Students at East Norfolk Sixth Form College are celebrating their A-level results.

The Gorleston college saw an overall pass rate of 99pc and 75pc of students receiving A*-C grades.

East Norfolk Sixth Form College Principal, Dr Catherine Richards, said: “I am absolutely delighted by this year’s results.

Our students have achieved fantastic grades, which is recognition for their hard work and determination to succeed and the dedication of our highly skilled staff to support our students and their aspirations.

As the top college locally for progression, more than half have secured their places at Oxbridge to study subjects ranging from medicine, maths, natural sciences, English literature, history and politics and chemistry. Many others are leaving the college to gain employment and apprenticeships having achieved impressive grades.”

The results were the same as last year.
