Outstanding Results for 29 consecutive Years for Bexhill College Students
On the 18th of August 2022, Bexhill College students received their results for A Levels and Level 3 Vocational courses. These results, as they have been with all previous years, are built upon an immense amount of hard work and dedication from the students, the staff, and the support they receive from their parents. Many of these students had not previously sat external examinations due to the Covid-19 pandemic and have also had their learning disrupted for both their GCSEs and the first year of their post-16 studies.
The provisional overall pass rate for A Levels at Bexhill College is indicated to be 98.8%, with over 1140 entries achieving a 100% pass rate in 25 subjects. Great amounts of students achieved high grades in their subjects this year, 79% of A Level students received A* - C grades which will allow them to continue and progress their education at their chosen university destinations, many of which going to Russel Group Universities.
Level 3 Extended Diplomas, courses that are the equivalent of three A Levels, saw another high pass rate this year at Bexhill College. Significant numbers of high grades were achieved across these courses and many students achieved triple distinction star (D*D*D*) which is the equivalent of three A*s at A Level. These results confirm that many of these students will be able to access courses at the country’s leading universities.
There were also many other student achievements as the College moved back to a more ‘normal’ operation post-covid. In sports highlights this year, the Bexhill College Men’s 2nd Football team celebrated their win in the Sussex County u19 2nd XI League Cup against Seaford Head Sixth Form College. In addition, Performing Arts students were able to put on their stage performances again and the musical Beauty and the Beast, staged in June, was a triumph and really highlighted the outstanding talents of our students.
Elsewhere, students from across the College were celebrating external achievements in competitions. Stephanie Flynn placed third in the Wales Young Poets Award with her poem entitled ‘Mary Janes’ being published in the competition’s anthology alongside other shortlisted poems, and Celia Reboux won a commendation award for her translation in the Young Translators Competition organised by The Queens College, Oxford, with over 14,000 entrants from across the country. Additionally, Kiera Holmes won first place in the Wealden Cup Essay Politics Competition; a competition where students from post-16 providers across Sussex compete for the Wealden Cup and a 50-pound prize. The essay competition was judged by Professor Paul Haggart from the University of Sussex, with Kiera securing first Place in Category A: UK Politics for her essay evaluating the primary causes of Labour’s electoral defeats since 2010.
The results showcased by students at Bexhill College have been achieved because of the effort, hard work, and determination of students despite the impact Covid has had on their learning. These achievements echo the high levels of success that the College is proud of, as well as the wide range of outstanding opportunities available for students throughout the year such as careers events and support, enrichment activities and sports teams, subject-related excursions, and remote guest speakers.
Bexhill College Principal, Karen Hucker, commented: ‘We congratulate all students on their achievements. We know how challenging it has been for this cohort of students to study through the Covid pandemic and their success should be celebrated. We wish all our students every success in their next steps’
