Havant Sixth Form College Students Celebrate Outstanding A Level Success

Results published today indicate that yet again students from Havant Sixth Form College have achieved outstanding A Level results with an overall pass rate at 98.3%.

49% of our students achieved the toughest high A* to B grades which exceeds the national benchmark.

In addition to achieving outstanding pass rates at A Level, Havant Sixth Form College is proud that around 500 A*/A grade were achieved.

Mike Gaston, Interim College Principal and Chief Executive declared: “I am absolutely delighted with these outstanding results. Pass rates are high again at 98.3% but what is as important, in the current climate of high competition in the markets for jobs and university places, is the number of students who achieved A* to B grades at 49%. These grades are the key to our students fulfilling their dreams.

We expect over 80% of our students to progress onto university with 20% going on to the prestigious Russell Group universities.

Congratulations to all our A Level students for their hard work and to our staff for their commitment and excellent levels of individual support.”

Suki Dhesi, Deputy Principal, is delighted with the students’ success and the exciting year at the College: “I am extremely proud of our students as their tremendous hard work and sheer determination to achieve the very best has certainly paid off. Staff at Havant Sixth Form College deserve a huge vote of thanks for their fantastic dedication to our students’ success.

It has been a phenomenal year at Havant; we have entered into an exciting venture with Google enabling learning for students anytime, anywhere via Google Classroom, which has certainly contributed to their fantastic results, we have been shortlisted as a Times Educational Supplement Sixth Form College of the Year and now these superb results!”

Mike Gaston added:“I am particularly pleased that, alongside our close partners at South Downs College, we have enabled young people from the local region to achieve over 2800 full A Level pass grades. This includes twins Natalie and Lorna Hibberd, one studying at Havant and the other at South Downs College - both thrilled with their grades. Based on today’s results, the journey towards our joint vision of excellence for the future has already begun.”
