Sixth Form students at Abbey College, Ramsey are celebrating fantastic post-16 results today.

Strong results were achieved across different subject areas, including A Levels in Maths, Further Maths, English Literature, Chemistry, and Biology; and vocational qualifications in IT and Engineering.

Early indications show that the vast majority of students have secured places on their first choice university courses.

Samantha Moore, Head of Sixth Form at Abbey College, said: “We are delighted for all the students’ who have worked so hard to achieve these exceptional results, with every grade reflecting the dedication and persistence seen throughout their last few years of study.

“While there has been much discussion about A level results, we should not forget that for many of these students this will be the first formal exams they sat after their GCSE exams were disrupted by the pandemic.

“Alongside their academic achievements, we’re most proud to have seen our students grow into successful young adults, ready to face the further challenges of studying at university, apprenticeships, or the world of work.

“We are pleased that most of our students have achieved entry to their first-choice universities or apprenticeships. We wish them every success in their continuation of academic studies or at the beginning of their new careers.”

This excitement is set to continue as the college is set to open a newly renovated Sixth Form, named Ramsey Gatehouse Sixth Form in September.

Samantha Moore added: “These results lay the foundation for success that will build upon as we open our new Ramsey Gatehouse Sixth Form in the next few weeks – reflecting a new, exciting, and mature Sixth Form for students in our community. We look forward to welcoming a new cohort and continuing these fantastic achievements.”
