The NPTC group of colleges that includes Newtown's campus, has reported a good set of results.

In the face of a global pandemic, the college maintained its overall pass rate of 99 per cent and achieved the highest number of A* results in the College’s history.

The College increased its overall A*-A results to an exceptional 20 per cent with students achieving a remarkable 100 per cent pass rate in 32 A Level subjects,  half achieved A*-B grades and three quarters achieved A*-C grades.

For the students who followed the Gifted and Talented (Gate) programme it is also good news with 84% achieving A*/A grades and 100% achieved A*-B grades.

Our overall A*-E pass rate at A level stands at 99.2% and 71 students achieved triple distinctions grades in the Extended National Diploma qualifications, with 32 students achieving the highest possible grade profile of triple distinction stars (D*D*D*) which is the equivalent to three A* at A level.

In addition to this, a staggering 427 learners successfully achieved the Advanced Skills Challenge Certificate with an outstanding pass rate of 99.3%. Both A Level and BTEC students adapted to on-line learning, focusing on their studies to arrive at what are once again, truly amazing results.

Many of the class of 2020 have secured places at top universities or got the qualifications to land their dream jobs.

Mark Dacey, Chief Executive Officer and Principal of NPTC Group of Colleges said: “I am incredibly proud of the results we have achieved especially in what has been a challenging time in more ways than one. Staff have adapted their teaching practices to engage students in a whole new way. These results are a testament to the dedication of staff and students in unprecedented circumstances.’’

Gaynor Richards MBE, Chair of the Board of Governors was delighted to hear results and said: “I want to congratulate all of our students who received results today. 

"We are acutely aware of how different the end of the last academic year turned out to be. However, you are now joining an illustrious group of alumni who have been successful in their studies with us at NPTC Group of Colleges.

"I am so incredibly proud of everyone, students and staff who have this year exemplified the ethos of this College by living and breathing our strapline ‘More than just an education’.”
