  • Students at Moorlands Sixth Form College collecting their A Level results.

Comments (0) MOORLANDS Sixth Form College in Cheadle is celebrating after gaining a 100 per cent pass rate in A level results.


Fifty two per cent of students gained the top A*/B grades and 80 per cent of vocational students in Year 13 gained the top grades of Distinction*/Distiction.

Out of 195 students who sat A levels and vocational qualifications this year not one student failed. College director, Steve Richman, said he was particularly pleased.

He said: "We have a truly comprehensive intake and to gain a 100 per cent pass rate indicates very high quality information, advice and guidance to ensure all students are on the correct courses, outstanding support and teaching from our staff and positive work ethic demonstrated by our students.

"I am immensely proud of all involved with the college. Our balance between being demanding and rigorous in our expectations of the students is balanced by the excellent support and encouragement students experience.

"Our students want to be successful and have high aspirations to achieve their potential and value all the college provides for them."

The range of courses available at the college is around 45, which enables students to pick subjects they need for their future, be stimulated and enjoy the high quality learning environment and courses that are best suited to their individual learning styles.

Mr Richman added: "AS level results show a similar trend with more students than in past years gaining the top grades.

"To continually improve what were already excellent results is always difficult.

"We have some ideas to improve them yet further next year so we are confident that those joining us in September are joining a successful team.

"So many students gained excellent results that it impossible to name them all.

"However, those getting at least three A grades (or distinctions) should be congratulated; Sam Bayles, Molly Boughey, Rebecca Dawson, Liam Evans-Nelmes, Nicholas Gibbon, Rhiannon Gibson, Joshua Jones, James Mather, Rebecca Mountford, Chris Oliver, Neale Sigley, Lone Smallwood, Daniel Woo and Callum Yates.

"Seventy three per cent of our students this year are planning to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK.

"With the grounding they have received at the Moorlands Sixth Form College, we feel confident that they will be highly successful and everyone at the college wish them well."

Rebecca Mountford, aged 18, of Blythe Bridge, gained two distinctions in PE and an A in textiles.

She said: "I am very pleased with the results and I am now going to university in Manchester to study fashion, buying and merchandising."

Lucy Espley, aged 18, of Cheadle gained a B in textiles and a B in sociology and a C in law.

Lucy said: "I am very pleased. The results will now enable me to go to Derby University to study sociology and criminology."

Liam Evans-Nelmes, aged 18, of Werrington gained two A*s for Maths and further maths and A grades in physics and chemistry.

Liam said: "I am very pleased with results. I am now going to Warwick University to study maths."

James Mather, aged 18, of Cheadle received an A* for biology and an As for maths and chemistry.

He said: "I am so pleased, but I am not sure what I am going to do for the next year"

Chris Oliver, aged 18, of Milton gained two A*s for physics and maths and two A grades for chemistry and further maths.

He said: "I am very, very pleased. I am now going to Birmingham to study physics."
