East Norfolk Sixth Form College in Gorleston has maintained its long tradition of exam success by featuring in the Top Twenty of all colleges (out of 350 altogether) in terms of the average A level points per candidate, for the 11th year in a row in the Government’s annual publication of results.
The Government publishes figures which show the university points achieved by students in all colleges. The calculations combine results from all level 3 courses including A levels and BTEC Diplomas.
The College Principal, Laurie Poulson, commented: "This is a super achievement by local young people and one of which the whole area should be justifiably proud on their behalf. We are a socially-inclusive, open-access college with the widest possible range of GCSE results on entry."
"We give every student the chance to reach their individual potential whatever that potential may be. Of course we have students who did really well at GCSE and get top grades at A level, but we also have students whose A level grades are miles better than their GCSE scores. If every student achieves their own personal best, the College's overall result will always be very strong!"
"I always stress to new students that top results are not automatic, just because they are at East Norfolk Sixth Form College. They have to be earned by consistent hard work and I am pleased to be able to say that most of our students do put in that hard work and achieve great results."
"This is well reflected in the fact that each year over 400 local young people go on from the College to successfully undertake university courses including the most competitive courses at the top universities."
