Celebrations in order for first Haywards Heath College A-level students

18 August 2021

It was a morning of celebrations for students at Haywards Heath College, as they arrived to collect their results on Thursday (18 August).

The college was full of pride from both students, staff and parents as the college revealed their first ever set of A-level and vocational results.

Some students were particularly overjoyed after studying incredibly hard the past two years.

Arham Bari was delighted to discover he had achieved A*,A,A,A which was the perfect combination to secure his spot at London Imperial College where he will study medicine.

He said: “I really could not be happier and do not get me wrong, I could have done a little better – but I got exactly what I needed for Imperial and that to me is all that matters!”  

Sharing his thoughts on how supportive Haywards Heath College has been he added: “I would definitely recommend Haywards Heath College to everyone as it pushes you to your full potential without leaving you soulless.

 “This college allowed me to get the perfect study/home life balance from the very beginning.”

Similarly, student Holly Hicks was excited to have not only secured her spot at the Royal Academy of Dance, but to also discover that she achieved higher than predicted.

Achieving A*,A*,A,A, she revealed: “I really was not expecting this to be honest, but the fact that I have overachieved simply makes me feel a lot more secure when it comes to my place at my dream academy.” 

Having only opened in September 2020, this is the first complete set of A-level results for the college, which has achieved a 98% pass rate (higher than initial results showed) and 52% of their A-level students receiving A*-B grades.

Ben Frier, Vice Principal of Haywards Heath College, said: “I am delighted with our results here at Haywards Heath.“These results are good in any year, let alone for a college which has opened during a pandemic and for our first set of results, our students should be extremely proud of themselves and what they have achieved.”
