Performance Results


Results Day 2021

Greenhead College is thrilled to report outstanding achievements by its students in their A Levels this summer.

This year, the A*-E pass rate was 99.8%, with 89.8% of grades awarded A*-C and 71.8% of grades A*-B.

72 students achieved 3 or 4 A* grades when taking 3 or 4 A Levels, achieving A* in every subject. 303 students achieved 3 or 4 A* or A grades when taking 3 or 4 A Levels, achieving A* or A in every subject. 1171 Students took 3 or 4 A Levels.

Greenhead College Principal, Simon Lett, said:

“We are extremely proud of all the work and achievements of our students, especially after such a difficult and disrupted year.  Our teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure students are able to progress to higher education, apprenticeships or employment, and we look forward to seeing what they will achieve in the future.”

Following the national cancellation of exams, A Levels were awarded through a process of Teacher Assessed Grades which were approved and awarded by the examination boards.  The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.

High standards in the region – and Greenhead leads the way!

The latest Department for Education School and College Performance Tables, published in January 2020, include data showing the average A Level result achieved by students and high grades achieved in key academic subjects.

In both categories, local schools and colleges achieved some outstanding results, reflecting the high standard of post-16 provision in the region.

Greenhead College is the best-performing provider of A Levels in the local area according to these latest two measures, and the third-best designated Sixth Form College in the country.

College Principal, Simon Lett, said:

“These latest government performance tables reflect Greenhead’s status as a top-performing, academic college.  We enrol students from a very large catchment area and with a wide range of ability.  They are given access to an extensive range of support which enables them to reach impressive standards.”
