New College Doncaster students have continued their record of excellent outcomes, despite the continuing difficulties and working with another new assessment system.
This year’s cohort achieved an A-Level pass rate of 100% and 61% of students achieved the highest grades of A*-B. In Applied General courses, an incredible 98% of students achieved a high grade, i.e. a distinction or distinction star, with 100% passing their courses. Both sets of figures are in line with the outstanding results achieved by New College Doncaster last year.
Brendon Fletcher, New College Doncaster Principal, said: “We congratulate students and staff for another set of excellent results. Although results have been awarded differently this year, in the absence of examinations, we are proud of the hard work and achievements of our students.”
The fact that our students succeeded in achieving excellent grades, on the back of extensive in-college assessments and following external moderation, speaks volumes about their excellent resilience, hard-work and commitment. It is these skills and qualities which will help them flourish at university, in apprenticeships and employment, and they should be congratulated by everyone for their hard-won success.
New College Doncaster is part of the New Collaborative Learning Trust (NCLT), and the Trust’s CEO, Richard Fletcher said, “We are delighted that our learners have secured such an outstanding set of results in these difficult times, giving them the best possible start to life after college, whether that be in education, training or the world of work. The fact that they have performed so well reflects their hard work, commitment and resilience.
Despite the difficulties, many students are already looking back on their time at New College with real affection.
