Outstanding A Level Results again for Paston Students. Students at Paston Sixth Form College achieved impressive A Level and BTEC results when they were published on Thursday 18th August 2016 improving again on the previous year.

We were particularly pleased that 21 A Level subjects had a 100% pass rate and 15 A Level subjects had over 50% of students achieving top A*-B grades.

Paston’s A Level pass rate improved from 98% to 98.4% with 78% achieving A*-C grades up 3% on the previous year and 50% achieving top A*-B top grades. At BTEC, students achieved 100% pass rates with 60% gaining top grades.

Kevin Grieve, Principal, said “I am particularly proud of students who have improved yet again on our very high standards. Our 2016 results are outstanding and I am very proud of all the students and staff at the College.”

Earlier in the academic year Ofsted visited the College as part of the inspection cycle. This gave all students and staff a much needed boost to their confidence. Ofsted reported:

“Learners have a good attitude to learning, behave very well and make progress with their qualifications. They take pride in their work and are able to discuss their subject with confidence”
“The standard of learners work is high and at times outstanding”

“Learners benefit from teachers’ high level of specialist skills and the passion they have for their subjects”

The number of young people choosing to study at Paston Sixth Form College continues to be impressive. Students are travelling from an ever wider area to become part of our success. The College continues to improve learning facilities for young people wanting to study A level and BTEC courses. This year group have benefitted from significant improvements to facilities at the College. Over the last three years we have built a new Science Centre, Theatre and Art block. The new Study Centre and improvements to learning facilities have made a big impact on overall results.

Kevin said “These outstanding results reflect our encouragement of students to work hard, have high aspirations and develop the skills to be extremely successful. Universities throughout the Country will be receiving talented young graduates from Norfolk this autumn as a result. We have also had a record six students gain a place at Oxbridge.

Kevin Grieve’s verdict:-

“Outstanding A Level and BTEC results achieved by talented students expertly and enthusiastically taught by Paston Sixth Form Colleges’ specialist teachers. Well done to all involved”.
