Andover College celebrates A Level, t level and BTEC student success on results day!  

Andover College celebrated its students’ success on Results Day (17 August) for A Level and BTEC students. There was a huge sense of achievement and pride from staff, students and parents as students came to collect their results, celebrated with their peers, family and friends and enjoyed complimentary crepes and coffee.  

The Andover Campus of Sparsholt College Group has again maintained its position as one of the top A Level providers in the region this year with 17 out of 20 courses achieving a 100% pass grade. Subject areas with high levels of students scoring A*-B included Chemistry with 80%, Law with 80%, Biology with 50%, Fine Art 67% and Media Studies 50%. 

In BTEC programmes, students performed equally as impressive. Applied Human Biology achieved 93% high grades as did Dance and 70% of students in Applied Psychology and Criminology obtained high grades.  

For the first time ever, T-level Adult Nursing students collected their first-year results with 100% achievement across the units. 

Ben Stokes, Vice Principal, Curriculum Andover said:   

“A huge congratulations to our learners who today received their A Level, BTEC and T-Level results. They have been a pleasure to work with as they have navigated their way through the challenges posed by such high-level qualifications. This year, our students have shown steely determination towards their examinations and coursework and pushed the boundaries of their potential.  

“The students now leave us and will undoubtedly progress on to wonderful careers in the future. For some, this will be via university, and we have already seen students achieve exceptional placements. We are immensely proud of them, and they should be proud of themselves. We would like to congratulate each and every one of them and also take this opportunity to thank those who work with us to cultivate an environment that allows them to flourish – parents/guardians and our colleagues in secondary schools – Thank you!”
