Examination Results 2017: Best Ever!

A Level results

A level results continue to improve on last year. We have achieved our best ever results in all major areas. Students and staff have achieved a fantastic 99% pass rate.


19% A* to A grades


72% of students achieved A*- C grades.


99% of students passed all their examinations (A*-E).


The A level results improved yet again, with significant improvements at the highest levels, despite new courses making it more of a challenge for both students and staff. We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our students. Six students achieved exclusively A* or A grades, and many students achieved the highest A* grade. Across the range students excelled according to their enthusiasms and abilities, and the overall pass rate climbed once more to 99%.


Vocational and BTEC results

Vocational and BTEC results have again shown a massive improvement: a tribute to the efforts of all involved. The average grade achieved by our Applied course students was a low Distinction, while the average grade achieved by our Technical level students was a Distinction Star. This is highly pleasing for a college totally committed to comprehensive education.


Simon Tanner, Assistant Principal and Head of Post 16 said:

“I am delighted! This has been richly deserved by students and staff who worked incredibly hard all year. The most up to date Government figures show we achieve significant improvement with all our students, but we never get complacent, and the end result is improved life chances for all our students, whatever their ability.”



On behalf of the Governing Board at Exmouth Community College, Chair of Governors Jill Elson said:

“We have an excellent team of staff under the leadership of Tony Alexander. The students have achieved excellent results by hard work and taking opportunities open to them to help them achieve these results. Thanks are due to the support of parents to their children and to the college. Well done everyone.”
