BOSSES at a Leyland college are celebrating another year of great results in their A-Levels.

The wait was finally over on Thursday morning as students up and down the country ended months of nailbiting to find out their results.

Officials from Runshaw College say their highly talented ‘Class of 2019’ performed ‘outstandingly well’ in their qualifications.

The average grade was once again a B grade this year and overall, the advanced level pass rate was 100 per cent, with 85 per cent of advanced level students gaining A*-B grade(s), or equivalent.

More than 500 high achieving Runshaw students will now be progressing to elite universities and to a range of highly prestigious dance, music and drama academies; and 104 offers (a new college record) have been made to Runshaw students this year for places at Oxford and Cambridge, or for medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.

A very happy Runshaw College Principal, Simon Partington, said: “This has been another day of great celebrations at the college and we sincerely congratulate all of our students for their well-deserved successes.

“These exceptional results are also a great testament to our highly talented and dedicated staff.

“Runshaw places a very strong focus on both excellence and enjoyment; all of our students benefit from outstanding teaching, superb pastoral support and the opportunity to take part in an amazing range of additional, extra-curricular activities.

“Our ‘Class of 2019’ have performed superbly well and we have no doubt that they will go on to be highly successful in their future studies and careers.

“We wish them all the very best of luck and we look forward to hearing about their adventures and achievements in the months and years ahead.”

The college also boasted a new record with 25 students having offers for Oxford or Cambridge.

Also the students broke new ground with 81 offers for medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.

One of the students who excelled was Rebecca Lea who achieved the highest grade in Law not just at Runshaw but the whole country. She took papers in Legal System and Crime, Tort and Law Making, and Contract and Nature of Law.
