Ellesmere College Celebrates 100% A Level Exam Pass rate!

Ellesmere College students are celebrating today with a 100% pass rate at A level and BTEC Diploma, a pleasing conclusion to a very difficult year. The results this year are testament to how well our students and teaching staff have coped and adapted to increased levels of uncertainty, new methods of teaching, remote learning and self-management of their learning and teaching schedules.

The Lower Sixth added to the celebrations with excellent results in their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) - all students have the opportunity to do this qualification in their first year and it carries a maximum of 28 UCAS points (half an A Level). 

Mr. Wignall, Headmaster said "It is a pleasure to see how well pupils have achieved and they are commended for their positive approach to our online lessons when the country went into lockdown.  We continued teaching our full timetable using Microsoft Teams for remote learning and were pleased to welcome most students back for the final term, although some had to continue working online due to the pandemic.  These results are a testament to their hard work and determination, to the diligence of their teachers and the constant support of parents."
