North Shropshire College (NSC) is celebrating outstanding student achievement today on GCSE Results Day. The English pass rate which was way above the national average last year has continued today with another great set of results. The Maths results have also improved and reflects on the hard work of the students and staff supporting them at the College.
Interim Principal Peter McCann comments, ‘I would like to congratulate the English and maths teams on their great results and further progress. They should be proud of what their students have achieved.’
Molly and Rachel Mackenzie are twins from Whittington and have both sat GCSE English this year and unusually they have sat different specifications, Rachel sat the old spec whilst Molly sat the new specification, both have achieved great results.
The girls commented, ‘We’ve both done different specs this year and are really happy with both passes. We’ve found English much better in College and want to thank Kim our tutor for helping us get there.’
There is still time to apply for courses starting in September 2017, including maths and English classes for those who wish to study a twilight part-time course.
