A Levels lead to outstanding uni results

Thinking of studying at Alton College before university?

LIzzie Cole (right) went on to gain a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences at Newnham College at the University of Cambridge is now working for a PhD at the University of St Andrews after studying here. She also captained her college on University Challenge and took a PGCE in Primary Education.

As hundreds of our current A Level students are receiving offers from universities across the country, according to HESA data, almost 80% of them will go on to receive BA/BSc (Hons) 1st class degrees and BA/BSc (Hons) Upper Second degrees. 

This is above the national averages. In comparison:

Undergraduates previously studying A Levels at Sixth Form Colleges on average receive 76%. Whereas students from Independent Schools on average receive 76% and State Schools on average receive 75%.

Last year we saw 40% of our A Level leavers go on to top Russell Group Universities (which include the University of Oxford and University of Cambridge) and the 1994 Group Universities (the group comprised of prestigious research based universities and disbanded at the end of 2013).
