A day of celebrations at College@Deyes

It was a day filled with celebrations on 17 August at Deyes High School’s college, College@Deyes, as A-level and BTEC results showed that despite their disrupted and difficult journey, students not only rose to the challenge but performed to a superb level across all subjects.

70% of students achieved A*-C grades, with incredible numbers receiving A*-B grades across the A-level courses. Additionally, 79% of students received distinction*- Merit grades in the vocational courses which, alongside the A-level performance, has ensured fantastic destinations for students as they take their next steps.

Mrs Beaney, head of school, said “We would like to congratulate every student on their achievements over the last two years. I am so impressed by the variety of university courses, apprenticeships and other opportunities our students are now beginning.

“The determination and resilience they have shown has been incredible. Everyone here at College@Deyes is so proud of them and their success is well deserved.”

Student Joseph Ball achieved three A* grades and will be heading off to the University of Manchester to study mechanical engineering.
