There were 7 top performing BTEC departments with more than 60% of all grades at Distinction*/Distinction:

As always we want to recognise and celebrate the outstanding commitment from our students and staff in achieving these results.  Our sixth form offers a very high quality experience for students of all abilities, with as much effort and determination given to the top achievers as those who enter with more modest GCSE profiles. 

Overall this is another excellent set of results for Collingwood 6th Form.
