Our talented Art and Design students recently received recognition for their artwork after entering a nationwide arts and crafts competition.
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
This year’s phenomenal results reflect the sheer hard work, dedication and motivation of our student’s and the ongoing support from experienced tutors.
Charlie Deane, Bury College Principal and Chief Executive, is delighted:
“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. To achieve results that, in many cases outstrip pre-covid outcomes, is testament to the resilience and commitment demonstrated by students and staff. Our learners and indeed our colleagues, are a credit to the College, themselves, their families and the wider Bury community.
“On behalf of the Bury College Corporation and all our staff, I would like to take this opportunity to wish our students every success in the future.”
Bury College is committed to delivering positive futures for all our students. Students benefit from a wide range of key personal development opportunities within their studies, which provide them with vital skills for jobs as well as skills for life.
