Another exceptional year for A Level and BTEC results at The Cheadle & Marple College Network.

It’s been another exceptional year at The Cheadle & Marple College Network for A Level and BTEC results. For the third consecutive year, the College achieved an overall A level pass rate of 99% compared to 97.6% nationally and therefore has exceeded the national A level pass rate by 1.4%. With hundreds of students securing and progressing to either higher education or employment.

In addition, the percentage of level 3 students achieving top grades has increased 76%. 410 A level students achieved a 99% pass rate and 273 BTEC Extended Diploma students achieved a 100% pass rate. These impressive achievements are a testament to dedicated staff who are fully committed and supportive to our students.

Acting Principal, Sharon Burton, expressed her pride and admiration for the students and offered her congratulations to the students and their families. “Our staff do a fantastic job in ensuring that our students achieve their full potential and are able to progress to their choice of University or employment.”
