College students celebrate


Falmouth College students again celebrate outstanding performance

Once again, Falmouth College has produced above national average results with 83% A level or equivalent qualifications at A*-C.  Over a quarter of students achieved the top grade across the whole College. These results are the culmination of two years of study for most students. For many, University places depend upon these results, for others, employment or further training opportunities await.

There were 47 A*, A, Distinction* and Distinction grades. 19 students gained at least one A*, A or Distinction*. Every BTEC student achieved a Distinction or above with 95% of those at Distinction*!

Outstanding individual performances included Rebecca Watts (A*A*A), Madeleine George (A*AA), Rachel Elvans (AAA and Extended Project grade A*), Lauren Cowie (AAB and Extended Project grade A*), Anna Freeman (AA and Distinction*), Olivia Crisp (A*AB), Will Luscombe (AAB and Extended Project A*).

Will Luscombe and Rebecca Watts both have places at Exeter University to study Physics, where they will be joined by Madeleine George studying Biological Sciences.  Rachel Elvans will be studying Biochemistry at Cardiff University and Olivia Crisp has secured her place at Birmingham to read Geography.

Performing Arts Diploma students gain awards equivalent to 3 A levels and congratulations go to Chloe Hunt (Triple Distinction*) and Katie Pewsey (Double Distinction* and Distinction) who will be studying Dance at Roehampton and Dance and Choreography at Falmouth University.

Many other students also performed really well and this is another set of excellent results for our students who have worked really hard to achieve success, supported by their families and Falmouth School and College staff.

Vocational courses in Child Care, Construction and Hairdressing have also produced superb results. Ben Watts has achieved his qualification in Construction and is now starting an apprenticeship for Cormac.  Jess Jose, Millie Bisgrove and Katie Edwards have completed their Child Care and Early Years Learning course; Jess is taking up a place at University of St Mark and St John in Primary Education.

‘It’s wonderful to see students who have worked so hard succeeding and moving on to the next exciting phase of their lives’, said Dr Fox Head of Falmouth College. ‘We look forward to welcoming our next group of local students joining us after their GCSE results next week!’
