Sixth Form students at The Ellesmere Port Church of England College (TEPCEC) have been celebrating after receiving their Key Stage 5 results.
The school, which earlier this year became part of the Frank Field Education Trust, praised students for their hard work, efforts and achievements.
Cath Green, Principal at TEPCEC, said: “Many congratulations to our students who have worked incredibly hard in order to achieve their results today. There have been some outstanding individual achievements.
“I am also pleased that this year we have seen improvements across a range of areas. Nearly a quarter of all grades achieved were an A*, A or equivalent, there has been a marked increase in the percentage of students achieving top grades across their A level subjects and we are also celebrating a 100% pass rate in subjects from Physics and Applied Science to Business Studies, Health and Social Care and Travel and Tourism.
“All in all, there is so much for us to be proud of”
Among the students celebrating was Josh Nolan who achieved A in Maths, A in Physics and C in Chemistry and has secured a place reading Physics at the University of Lancaster.
Josh said: “Over the last few years, I have been given all of the help and support needed to achieve my goals. I am extremely thankful to everyone at the College and I cannot wait to start the next chapter in my education.”
Abby O Regan gained Distinction* in Business and Distinction* in Travel and Tourism in order to confirm her place at the University of Chester to study Accountancy. She said: “The school has supported me tremendously throughout my journey, which has allowed me to achieve a place at my first choice university and start the next chapter of my life.”

Ms Green continued: “It is wonderful to see that our young people have been inspired to Be More, which is at the heart of our ethos at TEPCEC.
“Many of our students will now go on to study at some of the country’s top universities, while others are taking exciting routes on to higher apprenticeships and employment. This not only puts them in an excellent position for their futures, but they are also setting the way for the students that follow them through our school’s community.”
