TWO Saddleworth teenagers have contributed to another year of outstanding A Level results for Oldham Sixth Form College.

Emma Hall

Emma Hall achieved the perfect results with A stars in biology, chemistry and mathematics.

The former Saddleworth School pupil has now won a place at Durham University to study biochemistry.

Rhianna Bangham will study Classics at Cambridge University after gaining one A star in English Language and Literature plus A grades in Ancient History and German.

It has been a memorable year for Rhianna recently returned from a World Challenge trip to Uganda.

Overall the College, celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, has reported results almost identical to last year’s outstanding achievements.

With a 98 percent pass rate – above the national average – and almost half of the students achieving high grades, the College has maintained its excellent record for A level studies.

The College also continues to offer AS levels, and is pleased with another strong year of results.

In 2017, there was a 100 percent pass rate in nearly 50 AS and A level subjects, a further increase from 12 months ago.

As was the case in 2016, over 800 high grades were achieved at A level, while across both AS and A level, there were nearly 1,600 top grades.

When it came to students completing vocational studies, there was a 100% pass rate with nearly 600 Distinction or Distinction* grades achieved-the equivalent of A grades.

In total 79 courses at the College enjoyed a perfect 100% pass rate.

Jayne Clarke, OSFC Principal, said: “I am so proud of the achievements of our students, particularly in the context of so much uncertainty with the new A levels this year.

“To have achieved another fantastic set of results is testament to the hard work and dedication of the students and our staff, who have supported students wonderfully well.

“We wish all our students the best of luck on the next steps in their futures, whether this be at university, on an apprenticeship or in employment.”
