Priestley College is celebrating a decade of success on Thursday as students secured a 100% pass rate in 38 subjects.

For the 10th year in succession there was a 99% pass rate across all subjects with 72% of A Level grades awarded at A* to C.

Deputy Principal Matthew Grant said the success had been achieved despite changes that saw January modules replaced by an end-of-year final exam.

“We’re very proud of students who have been totally focused on securing their results and the tutors who have helped them to achieve their full potential,” he said.

“For the college this has been another great year for A Level results and follows on from tremendous success in the BTECs.”

Among the students who were celebrating was Lydia Prescott, formerly of Great Sankey High, who secured three A*s and an A to secure her place at Oxford.
