Ernest Bevin College is pleased to report that its first full set of A-level and vocational results since 2019 show some fantastic achievements from students, with many going on to seek exciting opportunities at a range of university courses.

Principal Tracy Dohel said: ‘I would like to congratulate our Year 13 students and thank the staff for teaching and supporting them, particularly through the last two turbulent years.
I am proud of the achievements of our students in the first public examinations that they have ever sat. They have shown great resilience and fortitude in their attitude and conduct towards their studies.
I wish each and every one of our students all the best as they take their next steps, and we look forward to hearing from them in the future.’
Students now go on to university across the country to take up a variety of courses, such as Medicine at Cambridge; Aerospace Engineering at Nottingham; Biomedical Science at Brunel; Mechanical Engineering at Bristol UWE; Business Management & Digital Marketing at Manchester; and Computer Science at UCL.
2022’s GCSE cohort received the highest grades ever recorded at the college. 88% received a level 4 or above in English with 82% receiving a level 4 or above in Mathematics, compared to the national averages of 78% in English and 65% in Mathematics. 100% of single science students also received a level 4 or above in Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
Further result successes saw a 100% level 4 and above pass rate in both Engineering and Religious Education, 96% in Computing and 79% in Geography. A total of 165 students sat GCSE assessments, with 77% receiving a minimum of five results between levels 4 – 9.
This is the first time since 2019 that students have sat examinations, with 2020 and 2021 results being based on centred assessed grades.
Tracy Dohel, Principal of Ernest Bevin College, said: “We are just delighted with the absolutely fantastic results of our Year 11 students.
Each and every one of them should be immensely proud of what they have achieved, especially given the backdrop of the last two years.
Well done, and we look forward to continuing the journey with you in the Sixth Form.
I would also like to give a huge thank you to all the staff for their hard work. What a team!”
