STUDENTS and staff at Amble’s James Calvert Spence College are celebrating this morning after successful A-Level results.
Grades of A to C are up this year and the 2011 results are the best in three years.
Many secured their places at university, with most getting into their first choice.
Head of sixth form, Sue Bell, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to bits. We are really delighted. We are on a three-year upward trend and they are the best results we have had in three years and that has been down to the hard work of both the students and the staff.”
Eighteen-year-old Matthew Donkin was one of the youngsters who was delighted with his results.
The Widdrington lad, who is now looking forward to studying maths at The University of Edinburgh, grabbed three As and a B.
He said he was feeling ‘jubilant’ after securing his top results in maths, English language/literature and physics.
His B was in chemistry.
