We were delighted to hear that we had the highest 16-18 college achievement rates in Wigan.

In the latest Department for Education National Achievement Rates Tables (NARTs), the College in the top 7% of colleges nationally.

The College also has the highest Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) and Level 3 scores (A Level equivalent) in Greater Manchester.

This places the College significantly above the national average for achievement rates based on pass and retention rates from the 2018/19 academic year.

In addition, the College’s adult performance is strong and is also above the national average.

College Principal,

Anna Dawe, said: “We are delighted that once again the achievements of last year’s students are among the top in the country.

“We hope that these achievements act as inspiration to this year’s students who, through these uncertain times, are continuing their courses online.”

This success follows news that the College is the first college in the Wigan borough to achieve all eight of the ‘Gatsby’ benchmarks relating to its excellent provision of careers education.

And this year has proved to be a very successful one for us having achieved a position in The Sunday Times 100 Best Not–For–Profit Organisations to Work For 2020.
