College all set for results rush

PREPARATIONS are under way at Sheffield College to handle the A Level results rush from students on their big day.

Staff will be giving out the largest number of results in the city - to 209 students - at Hillsborough College. There are another 287 students at other campuses.

Heather Smith, Hillsborough College principal, said: “The college is the largest provider of A Levels in the city and we have a total of 496 students completing courses this summer.”

Hopes are also high for another record-breaking year after A Level success in 2011 was the highest ever - with a 97.2 per cent pass rate.

Ms Smith added: “We offer a high level of provision for gifted young people and results day is the culmination of a great deal of hard work.”
