There were happy faces all round at West Suffolk College’s Learning Centre in Sudbury where 80 per cent of students who were studying GCSE English and Maths received A* to C grades.

The students were a mixture of mature learners and 16-18 year old vocational students studying a range of courses.

A total of 17 students sat the Maths GCSE exam in Sudbury and 82 per cent passed with A* to C grades, while 18 students sat the English GCSE course, with 78 per cent passing with A* to C grades, both results above the national average.

English student Alison Tosh was thrilled with her A.

“If anyone is thinking about going back to college to study English or Maths, I would highly recommend the Centre in Sudbury,” she said.

“Having failed my English exam at school, for the last 20 years I have wanted to challenge myself but didn’t have the courage to do it.

“The staff are very approachable, friendly and make you feel at ease. I have now achieved an A in my GCSE English and level one functional skills in maths.”

Deborah Barton, head of maths and English at the college, said: “These outstanding results demonstrate the College’s academic strength in teaching and this is now accessible to students of all ages in the wider community.
