The Blackpool Sixth community is once again celebrating a superb set of A level and vocational level 3 results. Ofqual recently announced that results would be comparable to pre-pandemic levels. The college’s results have indeed returned to the exceptionally high levels achieved before the pandemic.
Blackpool Sixth Principal, Jill Gray, commented, “What an amazing year this has been! In my final year as Principal, I could not be more proud of our students and the results they have achieved. Despite the unprecedented challenges of the last few years, the students have worked incredibly hard and have shown an unswerving commitment to their futures; their levels of resilience have genuinely astounded me.
Alongside these wonderful results, the students have also developed a range of new skills and experiences which will be of great benefit to their future success whether at university or in employment. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the exceptional dedication, passion and professionalism of our amazing staff, who continually give their all and inspire our students to thrive and succeed. We are also incredibly grateful for the invaluable support of our parents/carers and employers.
I wish all of our students every success and happiness as they start their next chapter.”
