We don’t always get long hot summers here in Lancashire, but the students at Runshaw College always seem to perform outstandingly well in their advanced level qualifications.

And that is certainly the case for Runshaw’s highly talented Class of 2018. The average grade achieved by A Level students was once again a B grade this year. Overall, the advanced level pass rate was 100%, including 80% “high grades” (A*-B, or equivalent).

More than 500 high achieving Runshaw students will now be progressing to the elite (Russell Group) universities and to a range of highly prestigious dance, music and drama academies. And 95 offers (a new college record) have been made to Runshaw students this year for places at Oxford and Cambridge and on other highly competitive courses such as medicine, dentistry and veterinary science.

An understandably delighted Runshaw College Principal, Simon Partington, said …. “This has been another day of great celebrations at the college and we sincerely congratulate all of our students for their well-deserved successes; these exceptional results are also a great testament to our highly talented and dedicated staff. Our Class of 2018 have performed superbly well and they are now fully equipped with the skills and self-confidence to be highly successful in their future studies and careers. We wish them every success and we look forward to hearing about their adventures and achievements in the months and years ahead.

“Runshaw’s enduring success is based on a culture of excellence and enjoyment and a determination to provide all of our students with outstanding teaching and superb pastoral support as well as giving them the chance to take part in an amazing range of additional, extra-curricular opportunities. Quite simply, we put all of our energies into “getting it right” for each and every one of our students. By doing that, we have found that examination results and league tables take care of themselves!”
