Falmouth College students can be proud of their hard work over the pandemic as they received an excellent set of grades for their A level and A level equivalent Level 3 BTEC results this morning. 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 steps of their careers. It has been clear that they have maintained their studies whilst in lockdown as they attained great results across the full range of courses. University places, employment and further training opportunities depend upon these results. This year the results have been based only on teacher assessments which followed Government guidance.
Dr Matt Fox, Head of Falmouth College said, “We are extremely proud of all the hard work that these students have put in over the years they have been with us. They are a great group of young people who have shown resilience during these difficult times. The pandemic has been difficult for all students but we hope that with these well-deserved grades that they can move on to their next phase and think of the all great times they had at Falmouth College.”
Francine Atkinson, Deputy Head of College added, “Teachers and support staff have welcomed students back to College on this momentous day and it was great to see smiles on their faces. We have supported and reassured both our Year 12 and Year 13 students throughout these challenging two years and it is great to congratulate them properly before they leave us for exciting destinations“
