Bury College is celebrating the remarkable success of hundreds of students who have achieved exceptional GCSE English and maths results.

Students have shown incredible resilience and tenacity during an extremely challenging year and the College is proud of the learners who have continued to work hard to achieve their GCSE qualifications.

The latest overall GCSE November resit results of students are as follows:

  • GCSE English - 194 students achieved grade 9-4
  • GCSE Maths - 292 students achieved grade 9-4

Over recent months, the College has worked hard to implement a range of strict health and safety measures which has provided students with the chance to return to College and receive face-to-face teaching, as well as the opportunity to sit these crucial exams. This, along with the fantastic efforts of the students and support from their parents and carers, has meant they could go on to secure life-changing qualifications which will go a long way in supporting future career progression.

Victoria Fell, Assistant Director of Personal Development said, “We are extremely proud of all of our students and staff for these excellent results. These are difficult times and to be able to share this wonderful news, which will have such a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of people, is incredible.”

Dane Brooks, a 17-year-old former Philips High School pupil, is studying Level 3 Travel and Tourism and completed his GCSE English qualification alongside his full-time vocational programme. Dane said, “I am delighted to have achieved a grade 5 in GCSE English, I never would have dreamed this was possible! However, thanks to the amazing support of my tutor, I have been able to secure this qualification, which is a real milestone in my life. I feel so proud.”

For many years, Bury College has produced consistently high-performing results in GCSE English and maths, and the latest results recognise the significant progress students make during their time at Bury College.
