Trafford College students celebrate excellent A Level results in an exceptional year
Trafford College A Level students celebrated excellent results in an exceptional year, with a 98 per cent pass rate.
Students collected their results by appointment at the Sixth Form Centre at Altrincham Campus, which revealed 67 per cent of learners with A* to C grades.
Celebrating the start of her journey to university life this year was one of the College’s highest achievers Sara Shirkavand who gained top marks of A in biology, A* in chemistry and A* in maths.
The international student joined Trafford College specifically for its unique Full Time GCSE Programme,which enables new arrivals to the UK access an English education. The academic high flyer plans to continue her education in Manchester by studying a degree in pharmacy.
Sara, 20, from Iran, said: “Leaving behind my 17 year old life and successful education, I entered a world of changes in the UK without much success transferring what I had learned into English and with little confidence. However, when I walked into Trafford College I was accepted in a way that has changed my life. I’m so grateful to my second family for what I’ve been able to achieve with their help.”
Assistant Principal at Trafford College, Helen Wood, commented on this year’s results: “We are proud of what every single student within the College has achieved in a year that has been like no other. These results are testament to the resilience and tenacity demonstrated by these students, who have adapted incredibly well to the changes in their personal lives and to the way learning has been delivered.
“With the solid pastoral support network and fantastic teaching and learning we have at Trafford College guiding students on their learning journeys, we are confident of every success in their future endeavours.”
