Congratulations to all our students on their incredible achievements this year.

Bury College is incredibly proud of all its students who have continued to adapt and progress, both academically and personally through challenging times in order to achieve their exceptional results.

An initial study of the results indicates:

  • 88 advanced Level 3 courses achieving 100% pass rates

  • 99% pass rate for A-level subjects

  • An excellent pass rate of 98% for all Advanced Level courses

Covid-19 has meant that the education of students has been disrupted and learners have been at a huge disadvantage. For many students, these are the first exams they have taken.

This year’s phenomenal results reflect the sheer hard work, dedication and motivation of our student’s and the ongoing support from the College and our experienced tutors.
