Worksop College pupils have produced outstanding A-Level results and two students are off to Oxford.
More than 35 per cent of of exam entrants at the college achieved an A/A* grade.
The college had a 20 per cent improvement on last year’s A*-C results with more than 80 per cent of entries obtaining a grade C or above.
99 per cent of entries achieved an A*-E.
Two of Worksop College’s students are off to study at Oxford. Megan Clothier from Blyth and Josie Levick from Saundby will be taking up their places as they got the A grades they needed.
Megan will be studying Classics, she said: “I am relieved and excited that I’ve got what I needed so I can get excited about going now.”
Josie will be taking up her place on the university’s Law course.
She said: “I am really really pleased and I couldn’t ask for anything better. I am so excited about going to Oxford, no-one in my family has ever been to university before so I’m pleased.”
The excellent results have meant that large numbers of students have secured the grades they needed for their first choice universities. Students will now be moving to study at the likes of London School of Economics, Durham and Warwick. Gavin Horgan, headmaster at Worksop College said: “The team at Worksop College are absolutely delighted that the hard work of our students has produced such an incredible set of results.”
“Many pupils will now be heading off to some of the best Universities in the world, with many now being in such strong position they can reconsider their options.”
