Barnsley Sixth Form College is celebrating another excellent set of A Level results with a 99.6% overall pass rate and a 100% pass rate in 26 subjects, including English, Computer Science, Fine Art, Mathematics, Physics and Spanish.

Despite the challenges posed by studying through the COVID-19 pandemic, many students have excelled and will now move into Higher Education. Students spent the first months of their courses learning at home with support from Sixth Form College tutors and staff.

Weronika Glinka received three As in Film Studies, History and Sociology and is planning on studying Classical Archaeology and Ancient History at the University of Oxford. She said: “I received great support from the College in reaching my goals and the staff are very understanding and helpful in times of need.”

Alfie Wilson is celebrating after securing three A* grades in Physics, Chemistry and Maths. He said: “I’m really pleased with my results. I am planning on going to the University of York to study Physics. I found all my courses interesting and the tutors and staff are great and have always been supportive.”

Denise Jelly, Barnsley Sixth Form College Principal, said: “We are very proud of all our students receiving results today. This year has seen unprecedented upheaval and change, but our students, supported by our staff, have met the challenges head-on.

“Our students have worked consistently hard to meet the demands of the A Level qualifications and they have shown a sustained commitment to their studies over the last two years. The dedication and resilience demonstrated by our students and staff is evident in this year’s results.

“At Barnsley Sixth Form College, our staff and students have a culture of high aspirations and I’m pleased to see so many students are progressing onto Higher Education or apprenticeships. I would like to wish them all the best of luck with their future careers.”
