STUDENTS and staff at Buxton and Leek College are celebrating the recently published results which placed the college fourth out of 220 colleges nationally for 16-18 year old results in 2012/13.
Delighted Deputy Principal Mary Blauciak said:
"Our success also applies to 19 plus students where results placed us in the top 5 percent of colleges nationally. We expect our results for the current year (2013/14) to be even better".
This performance rounds off a very successful academic year where Ofsted graded the College as 'good' in all aspects of the inspection - the best inspection result for either of the pre-merged colleges in over 15 years.
Mary added: "The college has a reputation for excellent employer links and brilliant support for students and staff with wide ranging industry experience - which is why 90 percent of student's progress to employment or higher education.
"It's not too late to apply to Buxton & Leek College – especially with the introduction of new courses including the Diploma in Theatrical, Special Effects, Hair & Media Make-Up and the Buxton FC Football & Education Academy."
