College celebrates exceptional results

Prior Pursglove and Stockton Sixth Form College is celebrating one of its best results this year on both sites! Among many worries and anxieties, staff and students devoted themselves to sheer hard work and determination. Students surpassed all expectations in achieving high grades and securing record high A* and A grades – this in turn will make it possible for all our students to embark on their higher education studies including Russell Group universities and Oxbridge to read mathematics, science, languages, law, economics, social studies and secure Higher Apprenticeships in diverse spheres.

A Level results for our Guisborough and Stockton sites include:

  • Pass rate over 99%
  • 85% subjects achieved 100% pass rates
  • 125 students achieved A* grades
  •  Nearly 60% of our students achieved High Grades (A*, A and B)

Asma Shaffi, Principal at Prior Pursglove and Stockton Sixth Form College, said:

“As a college community, we have delivered outstanding results this year! I am so proud of our students and staff who worked relentlessly against all the odds and unknown factors in the post-pandemic era.’

“Our students made exceptional amount of investment in their studies this year and these results are a huge success story for themselves – not forgetting the very high standards and expectations our teachers, support staff and managers deploy to get the best out of their students.”

“This will now affirm the university and apprenticeship offers especially those from prestigious universities and nationally renowned employers. This year is even more special for us – a significant number of students will be the first ones in their families to go to university”.

Joanna Bailey, CEO of Tees Valley Collaborative Trust, said:

“Given the uniquely difficult circumstances experienced by this cohort of sixth formers these examination results are a quite exceptional achievement for the college’s teachers, support staff leaders and chiefly, the students themselves.  I extend my warmest congratulations and thanks to you all.”
