“Newton Abbot College prides itself in providing high quality advice and guidance.” said Principal, Paul Cornish, “Meaning that, year-on-year, our students complete the right qualifications for them, leading on to myriad opportunities when they leave us - be that university, apprenticeship or employment. I am so proud of the staff and students; they never cease to amaze me. This year’s Sixth Form students should feel very proud of what they have achieved during their whole time at the College. These amazing examination results are the culmination of their academic efforts, but they have achieved so much more beyond grades during their time with us; as a result, they have grown into the most wonderful human beings too!”
