A record year of success for SGS College A-Level students

The past 2 years have been exceptionally challenging for students, teachers and the wider community, but SGS College Sixth Form learners are celebrating some truly outstanding performances today, after receiving their A Level results.

The College was awarded 67 A*/As with 12 learners achieving a clean sweep across the board. 51% of their students secured a high grade (A*/A/B) and 77% (A*-C).

There are highlights across all 23 subjects including: 100% A*-B for Geography and Further Maths, 92% and 81% A*-C for English Literature and Language, 80% A*-C and above for Economics, Physical Education, Sociology, Philosophy, Religion & Ethics, Politics and Film.

Head of SGS Academic Studies, Mark Anthony Jones commented:

"As a college, we could not be prouder of our students, but of course, this could not happen without the remarkable support from staff. 99% of all completing learners were awarded a grade A*-E, which is a testament to their hard work, resilience and dedication. Many of our students will now be progressing to higher education with several securing places at the UK's most prestigious universities. Well done all!"

Sharmin Seco, aged 19 from Horfield is celebrating today after receiving her results. Sharmin, originally from Mozambique, finished year 11 in India and furthered her studies by undertaking GCSEs in English and Maths at SGS before commencing her two-year A-Level programme.

Today she gained an A in Accounting, an A* in Business, an A in Economics and an A in her EPQ. Sharmin dreams of owning her own big business one day and based on today's results has secured her place at the University of Bath to study Business.

Sharmin Seco commented: "I am very happy to achieve my dream of studying at the University of Bath and this couldn't be possible without the support I received from my teachers at SGS College. They have been absolutely exceptional and brilliant and even more during Covid times. SGS will always be a part of me, and I cannot wait to start my next chapter."

Another student celebrating today is Corey Gibbons after receiving an A* in Maths, an A* in Physics, an A* in Physical Education and an A in AS Further Maths. Corey, aged 18, from Weston-Super-Mare, has also secured a place at Bath University and will be studying Sports and Exercise Science in the aim of becoming a sports scientist, a physio therapist or a sports and conditioning coach.

Corey Gibbons commentsed "I am ecstatic with my results. I couldn't have hoped for any better. I have loved every minute at SGS College. Their support and teaching has really helped me to thrive."
