Post 16 Results 2023
Minsthorpe Community College would like to congratulate their Post-16 students who have achieved excellent results this year. Across a wide range of courses, students have demonstrated motivation and commitment which has led to their success. The college is particularly proud of students’ vocational outcomes which are the strongest in recent years averaging a grade of Distinction.
Due to the fact that this cohort of students have experienced numerous disruptions to their education, did not experience formal examinations at key stage 4 and A-Level grades returning to pre-pandemic levels nationally, they must be further congratulated on their fantastic outcomes. There were numerous individual standout student successes who achieved remarkable results across all subjects including Annabelle Boothroyd (AA, Distinction*), Jack Kenyon (AAB), Chloe Tredgold (Distinction *, Distinction*, Distinction) and Joe Rose (Distinction *, Distinction*, Distinction).
These results mean that an impressive 90% of students are able to attend their first choice of university, with 73% of these being the first in their immediate family (first generation) to go on to higher education. A significant number of students have also successfully secured higher level apprenticeships with local companies.
Joint Principal Mr Gilmore commented:
‘We feel immensely proud of the achievements of our Year 13 students today. Each and every one of them has shown incredible levels of commitment and determination over the two years of their Post 16 education, to secure great results. We recognise that the students’ success is due to a massive team effort and we extend our heartfelt thanks to their parents/carers, our staff and the governing body, who have all contributed to the students’ results - ‘Team Minsthorpe’ at its best!’
Joint Principal Mrs Merritt added:
‘We are delighted that our students can now progress onwards in terms of their education or employment. Some have chosen to study at local universities, such as Leeds, York, Wakefield, Sheffield Hallam and Huddersfield, whilst others are going further afield to Durham and Nottingham. They are pursuing exciting degrees, including cyber security, Japanese Studies and forensic science, or beginning apprenticeships ranging from accountancy to web design. We offer our warmest congratulations to the young people and wish them every success and happiness for the future.’
