Our bespoke teaching and small class sizes empowers pupils to achieve excellent exam results and we pride ourselves on our strong performances across the School.
We are proud of our pupils and all they achieve, as demonstrated here by our GCSE and iGCSE examination performances over the past five years:
9-4/A*-C 95%, 9-6/A*-B 62%, 9-7/A*-A 39%
Across the nation, the level of grading returned to pre-pandemic levels this year, but Plymouth College has retained its performance from 2022, equalling last year’s percentage of grades from 9 to 7 and 9 to 6, despite more rigorous grading this year. There was plenty to celebrate, with a great number of excellent achievements by our pupils.
The achievements of our pupils are so numerous, it is impossible to name them all. There are outstanding academic results for many pupils including Freya Page, Molly Shorey, Jamie Gray, Ben Smith and Phoebe Timson, all of whom achieved top grades across all subjects. Notable performances and congratulations also to Croyde Chandler, Jake Smith and Charlie Watson for their impressive performances. Our pupils have again demonstrated their resilience and hard work in the classroom. They have also delivered outstanding successes alongside their academics, with notable achievements including Nubia Evans-Shields combining winning gold for England at a meet in Sweden, and since being selected to represent England Athletics, with her GCSE results. Jed Hutchings has also successfully achieved a noteworthy set of results whilst maintaining his high level of running at regional level. Meanwhile, Aidan Webb managed to achieve a strong set of results whilst also getting into the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Academy.
Mr Agobiani (Head of Middle School) had the following message for the year group on their results day: “Today marks the end of our journey as a year group that began all the way back in Christmas 2020 and actually started during online learning. That now feels like a lifetime ago, partly because each and every one of you have come so far in that time, be that in the classroom, in your extracurricular pursuits or, most importantly, in your growth as young people. Focus today can often fall on those who achieved the top grades possible, but remember, we always focused on achieving the best grade that you were capable of personally. Every grade that is a product of years of hard work and effort is worthy of celebration and should be a source of immense pride when you know it was the best you could achieve. As you all know, beyond the classroom, we wanted to ensure you were happy during their time with us and left us ready for what your future holds having developed just as much as young people as you have as academics in the classroom! I hope now you can look back on your time here with fondness and take those exciting next steps armed with whatever you need - be that grades, life-skills, self-belief! It has been an absolute pleasure to be your Head of Year and I am certainly going to miss having you as a year group. However, I cannot wait to hear about all your future successes - I am sure there will be many! Enjoy today everyone, your hard work has earned that, and best of luck for whatever exciting opportunities the future holds for you all!”
Adam Carr, Interim Head, said: “ These results are a testament to the pupils’ hard work, resilience, and collaborative spirit. Their mutual support and teamwork have created a vibrant and empowering year group. A massive thank you to the dedicated staff and parents whose unwavering support has been instrumental in shaping this success. I cannot wait to see their progress through the Sixth Form and look forward to seeing them benefit from the holistic experience of Plymouth College as they work through their next chapter in life.”
