STUDENTS at Solihull Sixth Form College are celebrating outstanding A level, BTEC and CACHE results this year, with an impressive 98.2% pass rate across all courses.

With the first set of results attained from exams since 2019, the pass rate at A level this year is 98.7%, with 54% of grades being A* – B.

ITV News and Free Radio were in College on Results Day to see students opening up their grades and talking about their achievements.

College Principal Dr Martin Sullivan said: “I’m proud of all our A Level, BTEC and CACHE students.

“I know how much hard work and determination has gone into achieving these excellent results, by both staff and students.

“These grades mean that our departing Year 13 students can look forward to progressing onto exciting destinations this autumn, with the majority going onto university. I wish all our students well for the future.”

Among the success stories this year are twins Dean and Matt Bridgewater, who share five A* grades and two As at A level.

The former Lyndon School students both studied Maths and History and achieved A* grades, while Dean also took Further Maths and Matt studied Biology.

They are both progressing to the University of Birmingham, with Dean planning on continuing his Mathematics studies, while Matt plans to study Biological Sciences.

Meanwhile, former Ninestiles Academy student Haisim Siddiq achieved an A and two A* grades in Business, Law and Sociology and is progressing onto the University of Law to study Law.

Haisim said: “I’m really excited and so happy with the grades I got. I can’t wait to go to university in September.”

Elsewhere in the district, Solihull School announced an ‘outstanding’ set of A Level results, with 84% of all grades at A* to B, 61% of all grades at A* to A and 30% of all grades at A*.

David EJJ Lloyd, Headmaster said: “These are some of our best ever results. I am incredibly proud of our students whose perseverance and resilience during such a difficult two years have helped produce such fabulous grades.

“We wish all 172 students the very best of fortune whether they are about to embark upon university, an apprenticeship, a gap year or entering the world of work.”
