“Our results have surpassed our 2017 results which, at the time, were our best ever and, as a result, the vast majority of students are now going on to their first choice destination.

“We pride ourselves at Hampton College on extremely positive and constructive partnerships between students and staff and the results have, once again, paid dividends.

“Sixth Form study is a young person’s passport to the next stage of their lives: we wish all of our Year 13 leavers well as they progress to university, college, apprenticeships or employment.”

Top performers included Lauryn Philips, who achieved A*AAAB and will go on to study Psychology at the University of York and

Sara Bean, who achieved AAA at A level and now takes up her place at University of Sheffield to study English Literature.

Other significant achievements include Maja Kaszuba A*ABB, Mathew Conroy A*ABB and Coda Heap A*AB.
