Validated Results show Hampton College has achieved not only its best ever results at A Level and Vocational Post 16 courses but TOP of the league tables for A-Level Progress in Peterborough, and top within a 25-mile radius for state schools.
The overall A - E or equivalent pass rate was 99%. The combined pass rate for all A level and equivalent vocational qualifications was 35% A*-A, 58% A*-B, and 81% A*-C. For A Level only, 47% of all Year 13 were graded A*- B and 74% were awarded A*-C.
Head of School, John Gilligan, said: “We are thrilled with the achievements of our year 13 students. Their hard work and dedication has been rewarded with a tremendous set of qualifications. The vocational qualifications have maintained their 100% pass rates and our A level only pass rate stands at 99%. We are particularly pleased with the significant increase in the number of higher grades achieved. Sixth Form study is a young person’s passport to the next stage of their lives: we wish all of our Year 13 leavers well as they progress to university, college, apprenticeships or employment.”
