Ely College’s sixth form students celebrated as they received their A Level and vocational diploma course results.

The college’s A Level pass rate was 87 per cent – a drop of four per cent from last year - with the pass rate for vocational courses standing at 95 per cent.

Among those to bag top results was 18-year-old Business Studies student, David Meek.

He said: “I got a triple starred distinction and I’ll start a course at the College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn in September. I’m very excited.”

Another successful student was Xena Day from Ely, who achieved distinctions in Performing Arts.

She said: “I’m off to uni in exactly a month’s time which is very exciting.”

Ely College was transferred to a new sponsor, Cambridge Meridian Academies Trust (CMAT), last month.
