Middlesbrough College delighted by students’ success
16 August 2018
Middlesbrough College has maintained its status as one of the best places to study to gain A Level success.
It was smiles all round as delighted students poured into the college to pick up their results, which were announced today.
Results show that 70 per cent of students gained high grades – with an overall pass rate of 98 per cent.
Also, an impressive 19 of the 23 A level subjects offered at MC6, Middlesbrough College’s sixth form centre, achieved a 100 per cent pass rate, including key subjects such as maths, computer science, law, history, geography and psychology.
Those studying for BTEC vocational qualifications added to the success, with 80 per cent of students gaining a distinction grade -moving the college into the top 10 per cent nationally.
Zoe Lewis, principal and chief executive of Middlesbrough College, was on hand to watch the excited students open their results.
She said: “I’m thrilled to see another year of excellent results for students, their lecturers and college staff who have all worked so hard towards this day.
“These are impressive statistics and we are proud to be able to support so many young people on their route to their chosen career.
“This year we have 1277 students who have applied to university and that is due to our consistently high achievement grade profile.
“Ninety-six per cent of our learners go on to employment, further or higher education or apprenticeships – and to a positive future. And, it’s great to be a part of that.”
In a rigorous Higher Education national review, Middlesbrough College was awarded the Gold Standard Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), the only university or GFE college in the Tees Valley to achieve this.
The TEF award was awarded for the college’s high quality teaching and learning, excellent progression into employment and outstanding physical and digital resources.
