Bishop Laney Sixth Form is celebrating today as students receive an impressive set of results. This follows its excellent first OFSTED inspection in June at which it was judged to be ‘Good’ overall, with ‘Outstanding’ leadership and management.
Bishop Laney Sixth Form is part of Ely College and provides excellent Post-16 education for students across East Cambridgeshire. Although there are no A level results to report this year, Bishop Laney Sixth Form is delighted with the results of Technical, and Applied courses at Level 3 this summer. From this September, a full suite of ‘A’ Levels will also be on offer.
Almost half of the grades awarded this summer were Distinction or Distinction* grades – the highest achievable in their respective courses; and all of the grades awarded were at a ‘Pass’ standard or above (100% pass rate).
Principal of Ely College, Richard Spencer, said: “We are delighted with these results, which reflect a great deal of hard work from students and staff. We’d like to congratulate all of the students on their achievements.
“We are very pleased that so many of our students have secured excellent university, employment or further training opportunities and wish them all well for the future. These results demonstrate that Bishop Laney Sixth Form is already delivering excellent outcomes for students locally, and we are looking forward to expanding the curriculum to include more ‘A’ Levels this year. Students in East Cambridgeshire deserve to be able to access excellent sixth form provision without the cost and stress of a long journey. We are delighted that Bishop Laney Sixth Form is successfully delivering that opportunity”.
A number of students achieved particularly high results including Louis Dinn Scarrow who, alongside his D*D*D* achieved in Sport and Exercise Science, secured an A* grade with his Extended Project, looking at the use of apps in supporting health care. Tiegan Seymour and Kiera Emson both secured the highest achievable Distinction grade in their Level 3 Beauty Therapy course, with Kiera also receiving a national accolade and the offer of a training bursary to continue her development.
