MALBANK Sixth Form College students will be going to some of the most prestigious universities after another set of ‘amazing’ A-Level results.

Results across the curriculum brought tears of joy and great excitement for students and parents on Thursday, August 14.

Among outstanding performers were Richard Adkins, who got 3 A*s and an A and will study Economics at the London School of Economics.

Elsewhere, Lizzie Short scored 480 UCAS points and is going to study English at York, with A stars in Product Design and English Literature – where she didn’t drop a single mark.

Headteacher, Jeannette Walker said: “We are thrilled that our students have done so well. The variety of courses and destinations is truly amazing and a testament to all of the hard work by students and staff put in over the last two years.”

Director of Sixth Form, John Harrison, added: “It is hugely gratifying to see the impact of the extra opportunities that our enrichment programme provides.

“We know from our students that these all round achievements have contributed to making Malbank graduates so attractive to so many universities and employers.”

Outstanding results in Art again saw 70 per cent of the group get at least an A grade, with four students gaining A*.

It follows 2013’s art results, when the art department was rated the second most successful in the country.

Similarly, 70 per cent of students got an A* or A grade in Business Studies.
