Falmouth College students celebrate outstanding performance

Poppy Faithfull

Falmouth College students were celebrating outstanding performance this morning as they collected their A level and A level equivalent Level 3 BTEC results. These results are the culmination of two years of studies for most students and the final stage of Falmouth College study before going onto the next stage of their careers. For many, University places depend upon these results. For others, employment or further training opportunities beckon.

There were 65 A*, A, Distinction* and Distinction grades. 35 students gained at least one A*, A or Distinction. This summer results improved again on last year with even more students excelling. 78% of all grades were in the range A* to C which is fabulous.

Outstanding individual performances included Gareth Willetts (A*AAA and Extended Project grade A), Charlotte Emsden (AAA), Poppy Faithfull (AAA and Extended Project grade A*), Charlotte Reburn (AAA and Extended Project A*), Esther Martin (A*A*B and 2 x Distinction*), Georgia Christophers (A*AB), Zoe Osmond (AB and Distinction*) and Susanna Tufnell (AAB). Jodie Syner, Esme Galbraith, Alexandra Pinhay and Jack Wallis gained a total of 4As and 9Bs.

Charlotte Emsden has a place to study medicine at Exeter University, where she will be joined by Charlotte Reburn and Gareth Willetts studying Medical and Mathematical Sciences respectively. Other university placements are Georgia Christophers (Physiotherapy at Cardiff), Poppy Faithfull (Politics and International Relations at Royal Holloway), Esme Galbraith (Nutrition at Kingston), Esther Martin (English at Leeds), Alexandra Pinhay (Midwifery at Plymouth) and there are many more. Four students have places at Falmouth University on their Television, Film, Drama and Digital Games courses.

Performing Arts Diploma students gain awards equivalent to 3 A levels and congratulations go to Matthieu Bethermin, Louisa Riggall and Richard Howard who all attained triple Distinction*, whilst Joe Holland, Chay Morris, Megan Tremethick and Callum Kitts gained 5 Distinction* and 6 Distinction grades between them!

Many other students also performed really well and this is another set of excellent results for our students who have worked really hard to achieve success, supported by their families and Falmouth School and College staff.

Medical Science BTEC students, equivalent to an A level, achieved superb grades – every student achieved distinction grades!

Head of Falmouth College Dr Matt Fox said “All of our students have worked really hard, we are very proud of their achievements and wish each of them every success in the future.”

The school now looks forward to GCSE results day next Thursday. Places are still available at Falmouth College for next year, with A-level and vocational courses and applications currently being processed. For more information please go to the school website or speak to Dr Fox.
