College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:
“I’m delighted with these results and I offer my congratulations to both the students and staff. A lot of hard work goes into achieving these outstanding results. In particular, the number of students getting A* and Distinction* grades is very impressive. They are among the best students in the country and can look forward to progressing to some of the top universities in the country on a range of highly competitive courses.”
The majority of students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull choose to progress to university and they are progressing to study a huge variety of subjects, from Law and Medicine to Architecture and Engineering and many more. Nine students have confirmed their progression to Oxbridge and Martin Sullivan is especially pleased to see the high level of support the College has given these students paying off.
“Even making an Oxbridge application is a challenging thing to do, as these students have been pitting themselves against some of the top minds not only in the UK, but from around the world. To get an offer is an achievement in itself, but they then faced the pressure of achieving the required grades. I’m delighted that these nine students have been rewarded with the grades they deserve.”
