Following a record year of exceptional A Level results in 2019, all students were presented with their official examination certificates and fourteen students were selected to receive special cross-college awards for their progress, achievement and work in the local community.

Aleeyah made a profound impression of the staff, governors and her fellow students during her time at Stockton Sixth Form, in her nomination from staff she was described as being “Determined from the first day to excel in all her work. This combined with an outgoing, friendly personality. She was a great addition to the college, she brought warmth, happiness, positivity and generosity to everything she did and was an immense supporter of the college as an ambassador for the college and mentor for new students. .”

The Overall Achievement award was awarded to Oscar Solis, a former Our Lady & St Bede pupil who was recognised for his outstanding efforts and achievements to secure AA*A*A* in Biology, Chemistry, Maths & Further Maths.
