Record breaking A level results at Ilfracombe

ILFRACOMBE Arts College has recorded its best ever A Level pass rate of 98 per cent, with a third of all passes were at A*, A or B grades.

Deputy head Tony Tucker said there some exceptional performances by individuals, too many to mention.

But of particular note were Josh Cassidy who achieved two A* grades and an A in maths, physics and further maths, while Kevin Powis gained an A* and two As in the same subjects.

Rickie Adcock got A*, A and B in history, art and design; Jack Turner two As and a B in maths, physics and further maths and Emma Vanstone two As and a C in photography, media and English.

Of the many students from Ilfracombe who applied to university just one failed to secure a place.

“The results come as no surprise,” said Mr Tucker, “reflecting the tremendous efforts of the students and staff, reinforcing the ever growing reputation of our sixth form at a time when more students than ever before from neighbouring 11-16 schools have chosen to do their A levels with us in September.”
