Students at Solihull Sixth Form College are celebrating outstanding A level, BTEC and CACHE results this year, with an impressive 98.2% pass rate across all courses.
With the first set of results attained from examinations since 2019, the pass rate at A level this year is 98.7%, with 54% of grades being A* – B. ITV News and Free Radio were in College on Results Day to see students opening up their grades and talking about their achievements.
College Principal Dr Martin Sullivan commented:
“I’m proud of all our A Level, BTEC and CACHE students. I know how much hard work and determination has gone into achieving these excellent results, by both staff and students. These grades mean that our departing Year 13 students can look forward to progressing onto exciting destinations this autumn, with the majority going onto university. I wish all our students well for the future.”
Among the success stories this year are twins Dean and Matt Bridgewater, who share five A* grades and two As at A level. The former Lyndon School students both studied Maths and History and achieved A* grades, while Dean also took Further Maths and Matt studied Biology. They are both progressing to the University of Birmingham, with Dean planning on continuing his Mathematics studies, while Matt plans to study Biological Sciences.
Meanwhile, former Ninestiles Academy student Haisim Siddiq achieved an A and two A* grades in Business, Law and Sociology and is progressing onto the University of Birmingham to study Law.
“I’m really excited and so happy with the grades I got. I can’t wait to go to university in September. I was only at the College for two years, but Solihull Sixth Form College has really transformed my grades and the way I thought. Its down to the great teachers that are here. I am overwhelmed. It has been an amazing experience at this College.”
