GCSE & A Level Results 2019

By 22nd August 2019Latest news

2018/19 has been our most successful academic year yet, and to top it off, our students have been celebrating their impressive GCSE and A Level results as the college continues to excel in providing a specialist STEM education.

Since opening in September 2015 the ENL UTC has gone from strength to strength with this years results surpassing previous year milestones:

  • A Level students’ average grade being at the highest it has ever been
  • Our highest ever Level 2 Engineering results

Benefitting from a hands-on, practical curriculum through high-quality teaching and industry experts, students celebrate their fantastic achievements and the many exciting opportunities they have to look forward to.

Carly Boden, Business Engagement Lead at the ENL UTC says “We are very proud of our students’ successes this academic year. For the third consecutive year we have increased our Level 2 Engineering results, to 76% in Design and 65% in Manufacture. We are looking forward to welcoming a significant number of students back to our sixth form, however students who have left us have progressed to positive destinations including the RAF and apprenticeships at local companies such as Lebus.

All of our Level 3 students have achieved their Engineering qualification and are progressing on to some fantastic destinations, including the University of Hull and the National College for High Speed Rail. Putting destinations at the heart of everything we do ensures that supply industry with young individuals with the right skills needed to be successful in the workplace.”

ENL UTC A Level students who celebrated their results on Thursday 15th August, achieved more grades at Merit and Distinction in the diploma qualification than ever before!

Oliver Beck, sixth form student at the ENL UTC, secured DM (Distinction, Merit) in his Level 3 Cambridge Technical Diploma. Currently working as a Design Engineer, at a local packaging solutions company Oliver said, “I was really nervous about picking up my results but now I couldn’t be any more excited. Going into my job interview, I was the only interviewee with the relevant software experience and industry knowledge which really impressed my manager. Now, I am looking forward to starting at Sheffield Hallam in September, studying Product Design and Development one day a week to achieve my Level 6!”

“Latest research from University Technical Colleges (UTCs) have found that nearly 1 in 3 students have thought about how specialist subjects will influence their career and more than a fifth of students said they would have benefitted from more contact with local employers whilst in education.

For our year 11 students who picked up their GCSE results on Thursday 22nd August, it was all round smiles with grades showing our continued success and improvement:

  • Grade 4 and 4 passes in GCSE Maths and English are 10% above baseline targets
  • Grade 4 and 4 passes in GCSE Maths and English are 10% above baseline targets
  • GCSE Computer Science results up by 12.5%
  • GCSE Science results up by 12.5%
  • Our highest ever GCSE Geography results
  • GCSE Spanish results up by 40%
  • 100% pass rate in GCSE French and Polish

Tiernan Macdonald, who secured top grades throughout his subjects and is now one step closer to his dream of becoming an Aerospace Engineer, said “I feel great about my results! The ENL UTC has helped me to do better than I thought I would and I can now look forward to achieving my Level 3 with the college over the next two years.”

Jake Foulger, who joined the ENL UTC in 2017, has future plans to work in Avionics and commented “I feel great with all of my results! The school has helped to improve my grades and gave me the opportunity to gain my level 2 in engineering early on in life.”

At the ENL UTC , we work to fill the high demand for engineers by equipping our students with everything they need to access tomorrow’s career opportunities. By providing a unique and dynamic environment where culture, employability skills and personal development is at the heart of everything we do, it has helped our students to secure excellent results and destinations.

Marc Doyle, Principal and CEO of the ENL UTC said “Against the odds, the UTC has gone from strength to strength. In danger of closing just over two years ago, with less than 100 students on roll, there was an unerring determination to furnish the local area with skilled professionals. To sit comfortably in 2019 with a Good Ofsted judgement, record Engineering outcomes, 100% of past students in continued employment education and training and a third year where maths and English results are above our stringent national baseline targets, we are delighted to have a school that continues to grow.

In September, we will welcome our first group of Year 9 budding engineers, with a brand new refreshed curriculum involving a variety of industry partners and a school of 230 students. I am confident that we will continue to grow and succeed.”
