Young people at the Cambridge college achieved extraordinary results, with more than 50 per cent of all A-level results awarded at grade A*-B.

Their success was matched by Btec and Ctec Applied students, with excellent results across all subjects particularly in sport, health and social care, business and media.

Many students at college also secured places at their first-choice university.

A-level student Raf Kasket was celebrating after picking up an A* in PE, A in mathematics, A in business and a B further mathematics. He will be off to read mechanical engineering at the University of Manchester.

“My favourite thing about Long Road is meeting so many new people and making new friends,” he said.

Amber Brewster was awarded three As in A-levels film, psychology and drama and will soon be heading off on a gap year in Australia before making the decision to continue her education either at drama school or with a psychology degree.

She said: “My favourite thing about Long Road sounds a bit cringe, but I really just loved my subjects and all my teachers! They were all so supportive and I had so much fun learning from them. I liked that Long Road felt completely different to being at school, I had much more independence and the opportunity to take responsibility for my own work – although i never felt too pressured. I made so many friends here that I’ll be keeping in touch with even when I’m travelling.”

It was a nervous morning in the Rice household as twins Philippa and Charlotte awaited their results. But the nerves soon disappeared when they opened their A-level results.

Charlotte secured an A* in PE, A’s in English language and literature, her extended project qualification, and a B in psychology. Meanwhile sister Philippa shed tears of joy when she learned she had secured three A*’s in economics, psychology and sociology and a B in her extended project qualification.

Philippa is off to the University of Sussex to study economics and politics, and Charlotte will be attending St Marys University Twickenham to study sports rehabilitation.

Charlotte said: “My favourite thing about Long Road has been studying English. It’s such a fascinating subject and really gives you the freedom to explore your creative side; plus all the teachers are really fun and made every lesson enjoyable” .

Philippa added: “My favourite thing about Long Road are my teachers. They’re all so dedicated to helping their students it’s unreal, I wouldn’t have achieved these results today without them.”

A spokesperson for Long Road said: “These results highlight not only the adaptability and tenacity of our students, but also of all the dedicated staff at Long Road who have expertly supported them through the uncertainty of the last two years.

“We really are in awe of our students today whose outstanding results prove only what we know to be true; that you are an amazing community of young people: creative, determined, thoughtful, intelligent, adaptable, and off to change the world.

“Class of 2022, we are so very proud of you and cannot wait to see the great things you go on to do next.”
