Hundreds of Sir John Deane’s College students had plenty to celebrate when they opened their A Level results.
Former Tarporley High School student Harry Ayton, 18, will study chemical engineering at Cambridge after achieving three A*s in chemistry, mathematical mechanics and physics as well as an A in further maths at AS level.
Harry, who lives in Tarporley, said: “I am absolutely thrilled with my results, but also quite shocked as I didn’t expect to do so well. I have had a fantastic time at Sir John Deane’s College - it’s been everything I hoped for.”
Florence Barratt, 18, also from Tarporley, achieved straight A*s in history, English literature and psychology and now plans to study history at the University of Warwick.
Lisa Morgan, 18, from Frodsham, achieved an A* in maths and As in further maths, French and computing and now plans to study computer science at The University of York.
Sufyen Fuaad Buras-Stubbs, 18, from Kelsall achieved As in biology, politics and economics.
The former Tarporley High School student hopes to go on to study philosophy, politics and economics and is still deciding on a university.
SJD Principal Kerry Kirkwood said: “One of the privileges of working with young people is that you can share in moments of joy and exhilaration – and we have lived that today.
“The atmosphere around college has been fantastic and we are also delighted that so many parents joined us to share in excitement. There is a real sense of strength in the college community – whether students, parents, carers, governors, staff or teachers.
“We are particularly proud that so many of our students have received the grades they need to progress to their first choice university and I would like to congratulate everyone for their hard work, commitment and achievements today.”
SJD, Cheshire West’s sixth form college is attended by hundreds of students from across the county.
It is nationally-recognised as a Beacon college and is a member of the prestigious Maple Group of top-achieving colleges – this year achieving a 98% pass rate.
