At Selby College we help our students to have, and to achieve, the highest aspirations possible, whatever their study route. The high-quality of our provision and the achievements of our learners are testament to this. We would like to update you on the College’s academic results for 2017/18, as we have had our most successful year ever.
For our A Level curriculum we achieved an excellent Alps score of 3 and a 100% pass rate in all subjects. The College has focused significantly on driving up progress and challenging students to aspire higher.
We continue to focus on A Levels in facilitating subjects to ensure the majority of our A Level students will apply to Russell Group universities. In terms of high grades, over 22% of our A Level results were A* or A, and over 51% were A* - B.
Our Level 3 Vocational qualifications also delivered an excellent score of 3 in terms of Alps data, with 78% of students gaining a Distinction grade, and of these 64% were triple Distinction.
If a student chooses to take one of the applied or technical Level 3 qualifications, they will be stimulated and challenged on this combined academic and practical route. This allows students to choose a range of high-quality destinations, from progression to Russell Group universities, to Apprenticeships with PwC or Higher Apprenticeships with higher education and work combined.
To ensure a well-rounded education we also have a range of College sports, including Football and Rugby, in partnership with Hull FC.
All students will undertake work experience and/or UCAS conventions as well as employability and independent study and management time. This ensures that not only are they high-achieving, but that they have developed the skills and understanding for the next step in their career pathway.
Department of Education Destination Measures
The College is very proud of the fact that we perform very highly in the DfE sustained destinations measure. This measure looks at young people six months after they completed College to see if they have remained in their positive destination. For the last three years we have been in the top 5% of the Colleges in England.
