This year’s November resit results of 52% pass rate in English and 43% pass rate in Maths is a tremendous achievement and one that is significantly above the national benchmark for colleges and Sixth Forms in the country.

Nana Abena Yebuaah Baidoo, a 18-year-old student, is studying A Level Law, Politics and Religious Studies with the Honours Programme and is completing her GCSE English qualification alongside her full-time study programme. Nana achieved a grade 7 in GCSE English and said,
“I chose to study at B6 because they offered the courses that I wanted to do. The teachers are all really hands-on and attentive. My GCSE English Tutor, Mr Slamin, has been especially helpful. When I leave The Sixth Form, I hope to study Law at university and a good GCSE English grade is essential for this. I’m delighted that I achieved such a good grade at B6”
Adaeze Praise Onaga was also over the moon with her GCSE English grade achieving a fantastic grade 8. Adaeze studies Triple Vocational A Level Applied Science and said,
“I wasn’t expecting such a good grade. I previously studied in Nigeria and the style of teaching is so different here at B6. My GCSE English Teacher, Ms Parkinson is really nice and I really like the way she teaches. I need a good GCSE English grade for University so I’m really happy with my 8.”
