Worthing College is celebrating its ‘best ever’ A-level and BTEC Level Three results this morning.
The A-level pass rate for the college in Sanditon Way was 98.8 per cent, while 42.9 per cent achieved high grades at A* to B - an impressive 3.8 per cent improvement from last year.
In 22 subjects students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate - the college’s best ever - and 125 students achieved three or four A grades or equivalent.
The pass rate for BTEC Level Three was 97.6 per cent, 79.4 per cent of these being high grades.
Principal Paul Riley said: “These results follow an outstanding year of student achievements and the ‘Good’ Ofsted we achieved in April 2016, which demonstrates that the college is good in every respect. These pass rates are all above national averages for Sixth Form Colleges and will enable our students to progress to top universities, apprenticeships, employment and further training.
“We wish our students every success in their future. I would also like to congratulate each and every one of our dedicated and inspirational staff for the excellent teaching, learning and support they have provided for our students this year.
“These results reflect an outstanding commitment to high quality education and training in our local community.”
