2021 Examination Results at Torpoint Community College
Torpoint Community College is pleased to report some outstanding achievements by its students in their GCSEs, A level and other qualifications this summer. On 10th August, Year 13 students celebrated their success on A level results day and Year 11 students celebrated GCSE results day on 12th August. Staff and Governors are extremely proud of each and every one of the Year 11 and 13 students.
This year, following the cancellation of examinations for a second year, grades were awarded through a process of teacher assessed grades, against a national standard and approved and awarded by the examination boards. The government is not publishing performance data for any schools or colleges this year due to the varying impact of the pandemic.
The increased challenge that recent months have brought has not diminished the work of our Year 11 and 13 students. It is important to remember that students have been with us for five or seven years and each results day sees the culmination of all the hard work and steely determination that has been achieved.
Students have received grades which are a testament to their hard work and commitment throughout their studies and which really promote our motto “Inspiring Optimistic Learners”. We are confident that our students have completed Year 11 or 13 with the grades they fully deserve and which put them in a strong position to embark upon the next part of their learning journey.
Dr Jeremy Plumb, Headteacher, said ‘I am delighted for the students. Their hard work over many years, great teaching and the overwhelming support from parents have resulted in the College continuing to go from strength to strength. The challenges that everyone has faced over recent months, and throughout the pandemic, does not take away from the excellent achievements and is a testament to the strength and resilience of everyone’. There is much to celebrate in 2021 and for the future ahead.
Torpoint Community College A Level Results 2021
Staff at Torpoint Community College would like to say a huge congratulations to all out students who picked up their final A Level and CAMTEC results today and have done so well. For this cohort of students, this year’s experience was unique as they had to cope with two periods of remote learning, the cancellation of formal exams and assessment based on Teacher Assessed Grades. We are very pleased to be celebrating some superb achievements with a higher than normal number of students applying for University. 75% of this year group applied for University this year with a significant number achieving their first choice places. We are proud that all of our students are either going on in education or taking up employment through apprenticeships. Well done to them all.
Some students have done particularly well this year. Three students achieved A* grades in Art and Design: Amelia Herbert, Finlay Mackenzie and Hollie Rickard; Deryn Matthews achieved A* in English Literature and an A grade in History and Rosie Richardson achieved A grades in both Mathematics and History.
Many of our students reached or exceeded their targets and should be extremely proud of what they have achieved and we are so pleased to have so many get in to their University places and Apprenticeships.
Overall the College is delighted. Head of Sixth Form, John Golding said, “At the end of a very challenging year, I am incredibly proud to be part of such an amazing Sixth Form with such wonderful students, parents and staff. This cohort of young people have shown remarkable resilience and positivity to keep working hard in the most difficult of situations. Many of them have coped with huge personal challenges and I am delighted to see them being rewarded today. We are the smallest school Sixth Form in Cornwall and yet our students are now ready and willing to take their places on the world stage. They are confident to stand heads and shoulders with the best and have the necessary skills and expertise to flourish in their chosen careers. Best of luck to the next generation of doctors, lawyers, scientists, computer programmers, physiotherapists, teachers, nurses and so much more. The College would like to thank each and every student for working so hard over the last two years and also thank the parents and carers of our students who have given them such unwavering support. The College Leadership Team would also like to thank each member of staff for going the extra mile to support our students.”
