NEW  College - Celebrating Success 2013

Student Success Already an established provider of academic excellence, this year, despite a well-publicised “toughening up” of the A-Level “gold standard”, students at the college achieved results giving an overall pass rate of 99%, a high grade rate of 46% and an A* to C rate of 74%.

2

Well over half of all A-Level subjects offered achieved a pass rate of 100%.

Congratulations to Ben and James! NEW College A Level students Ben Cooke and James Coppin have both been offered places at Oxford University. Ben, who studied History, English and Geography, will take up a place at Balliol College and will be reading English. James Coppin, who studied Chemistry, Physics and Maths, will read Chemistry at Christchurch College.

At AS level, the halfway point in a student’s A-Level programme, the pass rate at high grade rate soared to its highest level ever, placing it well above the national average, and securing the college’s reputation as a top provider of post-16 education and qualifications. NEW College’s Principal, Pauline Hagen, said: “Once again, it is students and staff who have provided these fantastic statistics, which reflect so well on the College. We are very proud of them and grateful to their parents who support us so well.”

Pauline

Other successes include student, Oscar Holch, who has been successful in securing a place at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London.

Congratulations to Oscar!

Oscar studied Government & Politics, History and Music at the sixth form, applied for both the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal Northern College of Music and was successful in both.
