Uckfield Community Technology College (UCTC) has reported a record-breaking number of top grades in the A-level results announced today (August 18).
Students achieved the highest percentage ever of A* and A grades.
A total of 11.5% of all the grades were A* and 28.1% of the grades were A* or A, making this a record-breaking year with the best set of top grades in the history of the college.
A spokesperson for UCTC said: “With universities demanding very high grades, the competition to achieve is stiffer than ever and these students have risen to that challenge superbly.”
Fifty per cent of the grades were A*- B.
Over the last three years the number of students achieving at least ABB or better at UCTC has risen from 24 in 2014 to 34 in 2015 and this year it was 42, reflecting a substantial and sustained improvement in the Sixth Form.
Principal, Hugh Hennebry said: “All the staff are so very proud of these students.
“They have been so enthusiastic to learn and so interested and curious about the subjects they have studied.
“As a result, they have put in so much effort and their results are a reflection of all their hard work.
“They all thoroughly deserve their success and we wish them every happiness for the future.
“We are also delighted with the way our staff and parents have worked so closely to inspire and support them and they deserve a special thank you and well done, too.”
There were many outstanding individual results and many students achieved or surpassed their personal goals.
