Joseph Chamberlain Achieves 99% A-Level Pass Rate for the 5th Year Running

It has been another fantastic year of results for Joseph Chamberlain College and its students, with a 99% A-level pass-rate for the fifth year running and with more than half of all A-level grades an A or B grade. Following on from receiving a Grade 1 Outstanding rating in its most recent Ofsted inspection, with an outstanding grade awarded in every category, the College is delighted to accompany this with record examination results.

Tony Day, Deputy Principal at the College, said: “We are so proud of our students every year and of the tremendous results they achieve at Joseph Chamberlain College. This year, we are celebrating our best ever A-level results again – half of our students were awarded the highest grades A and B and our pass rate was at a record high of 99.4%. This means that nearly all of our students are progressing to their first choice university degrees. We are also celebrating the fact that the number of students going on to study medicine this year is the highest it has ever been. I am really looking forward to hearing about the successes our students will go on to have in the years to come.”

The latest commendatory report from Ofsted praises the College’s ‘highly positive atmosphere for learning’ as one which displays ‘inspirational teaching’, in an environment where ‘students make outstanding progress from their different starting points’; and its latest results are testament to that.

Students studying vocational courses have also achieved tremendously well, with the vast majority achieving the highest distinction grades and progressing to their first choice university courses.
