A RECORD number of students received their A-level results from across Oaklands College’s Welwyn Garden City and St Albans campuses.
With 11 subjects achieving a 100 per cent pass-rate, including English Literature, Government & Politics and Human Biology, more than a third of students achieved grades A* to B.
George Milleret, who studied Intensive Maths at Welwyn Garden City and achieved an A* said: “ Oaklands has been very different from school, it has set me up for college, the tutors have been excellent, the environment brilliant and I have walked away today with an A*, 98 per cent overall and got into my first choice university, Leeds, to study physics.”
Matt Godman, Director of A-levels, said: “I would like to warmly congratulate all of our students that have worked so hard to achieve these outstanding results, as well as the tutors that taught and inspired them to succeed.”
Zoe Hancock, principal of Oaklands College, added: “We are very proud of the successes of our students this year and I would like to congratulate them all on their achievements.
“At Oaklands we offer an independent and supportive learning environment and we hope to continue to help more students reach their potential and plan for a great career.”
