Newton Abbot College was celebrating an incredible set of results today as students collected their GCSE grades.
Principal, Paul Cornish, commented, “We have always known that this year group would achieve great things. They have shown incredible potential throughout their time here at College. Whilst it is a shame that they did not get the opportunity to prove themselves in formal examinations, it is important that we take nothing away from them or their efforts. These results are the only GCSE and BTEC results that this cohort will get; it isn’t their fault that there was a global pandemic this year – they certainly did not choose these circumstances. I am so proud of the staff and students and everything that they have achieved. The results are truly outstanding and thoroughly well-deserved.”
All students should be proud of themselves, but special mention must go to: Lottie Eslick, Tabitha Hammond, Cerys Kennedy-Bruyneels, Zak-Ray Linley-Moss, Maddie Manning, Amy Miller, Emily Reed, Laura Scanlon, Lily Tomlinson and Aiden Wood who achieved 79 grades 8 and 9 (A*s in the old grading system) between them.
