From Hereford Sixth Form College:
After another challenging year for students, with multiple lockdowns, restrictions, testing and isolating, normality returned in the form of results day. Grades were this year based upon teacher assessments within A Levels, vocational qualifications and GCSEs. Mock exams and coursework were the major component of these grades and students’ results were in line with previous years, which have traditionally seen the College placed in the top category of performance, judged by the Ofsted regime.
Peter Cooper, College Principal, wanted to re-assure students: “Our leavers are as well prepared as previous years for the next stage of their journeys, whether that is to university, further education, apprenticeships or employment. Our students have not only covered all the material and skills necessary to succeed at the next stage but have also developed new skills of learning in our comprehensive virtual lessons and support packages. It has been a tough journey over a rough terrain, but I know our students have really done an excellent job and are well positioned for their next challenge.”
“Congratulations to them and the staff who have worked incredibly hard, often in new ways, to deliver and support a high-quality experience and outcomes. Well done to all.”
Results day at Hereford Sixth Form College is about recognising and celebrating the hard work and commitment of our students over the two years of their study with us.
Krystian Bialoskorski, who went to the Queen Elizabeth Humanities College in Bromyard, achieved an outstanding A*A*A*A. Krystian was thrilled with his results and said, “It has been a very challenging but rewarding time. I enjoyed my subjects which have been delivered by very passionate teachers.” Krystian will be going to the University of Cambridge to study Economics in September.
Former St Mary’s RC High School student, Tabitha Smith, is headed to the University of Cambridge in September to study History. Tabitha achieved an excellent A*A*A*A*B and said, “My courses were very broad, which offered much detail and interest. The humour of my teachers really made it!”
Caitlin Bennett, who went to Church Stretton School, achieved an outstanding A*A*A*. Caitlin was thrilled with her results and said, “The College has been very supportive and helpful. All of my courses were fantastically taught and my teachers were always there when I was struggling and pushed me so that I was able to perform at my best.” Caitlin will be going to the University of Bristol to study Law in September.
Charlotte Edwards, a former Hereford Academy student, was delighted with her results and said, “The courses and teachers offer enough support whilst also encouraging us to work independently, preparing us for university. All my teachers have made the courses enjoyable and have supported me continuously throughout my time here.” Charlotte will be studying English at the University of Oxford from September.
Grace Jones, who went to Newtown High School, achieved an impressive A*A*A*. Grace was thrilled with her result and said, “The support has been incredible. My English teacher, Vicky, spent unbelievable amounts of time on every student. During the lockdown, she would contact us and any time we felt worried she gave detailed advice and support.” Grace holds an offer to study English at the University of Cambridge.
The Class of 2021 have achieved some excellent results whilst facing extraordinary circumstances. Students should feel proud of what they have achieved at Hereford Sixth Form College and look forward to a successful future.
