ST BEDE’s A Level students have stars in their eyes after getting record results.

A third of students at the South Manchester college gained three A*s and As, with a 100 per cent pass rate and more than 71 per cent gained A* to B grades.

James Dumbill, head of upper sixth, said: “Despite the fact that University places being are very hard to obtain this year, all of our Oxbridge students won their places and over forty students have already gained places to study at the prestigious Russell group Universities.”

Julia Wdowin got three A*’s in French, Maths and Spanish and is going to read French and Spanish at Cambridge. She said: “I am absolutely delighted and so happy. I am very excited to have been ‘given’ an opportunity to go to Cambridge.”

Headmaster Daniel Kearney said: "We are delighted with the results the sixth form have achieved yet again, a 100 per cent pass rate has been achieved. This success is a result of excellent teaching, conscientious pupils and supportive parents."

"The college believes that all pupils learn more effectively and develop holistically in an environment in which they are positively encouraged and in which they feel secure and valued for the unique contribution only they as individuals can make.

“In such an atmosphere of mutual support and positive encouragement, each child’s potential is developed and their personal academic achievement is boosted."
