A-level results day 2022: Hills Road Sixth Form College





Hills Road Sixth Form College students have bucked the national trend of falling numbers of A* and A grades.

Among the successes of this year’s cohort include an impressive 74 students accepting places at the Universities of Cambridge and Oxford.

The students collecting results today were denied the chance to sit their GCSEs due to lockdown restrictions two years ago and are the first to sit public examinations since 2019.

At Hills Road, those impressive levels of focus and determination and their extraordinary efforts have been rightly rewarded.

Principal Jo Trump said: “These are incredible results for this most resilient of cohorts and I couldn’t be more delighted for them; for their families and for the staff team here who have all worked so hard to secure these astonishing outcomes.

“This year group had an abrupt end to their secondary schooling in March of 2020; they sat no high-stakes, formal qualifications before this year; they have coped with online learning; with lockdowns; with mask wearing and have had to miss so many of the joyful bits of sixth form education.

“They are absolutely deserving of these exceptional A-level results and of all the opportunity doorways they have opened for themselves. These amazing young people have exceeded all expectations – there is nothing they can’t cope with - and we can’t wait to see them go on to shape their futures and ours.”

The results mean that the vast majority of Hills Road students have been able to secure their first-choice destinations, whether in higher education, apprenticeships, or employment.

Each year around 93 per cent of Year 13s at the sixth form college progress to university, with many successfully enrolling on the most competitive degree courses.
