The achievement of our students is remarkable, especially considering the challenges they faced in undertaking their GCSE’s during the pandemic.
Dan Hards, the College Principal, said, “I would like to congratulate our students and their teachers on Esher Sixth Form College’s excellent 2023 examination results. Nationally, A Level and BTEC grading have returned to pre-pandemic standards and whilst there was protection built in across the country, results are lower this year than in the previous three years. To achieve such strong examination results in these circumstances is a huge credit to the whole College community. We wish all our students success as they move on to their next destination, whether this be higher education, employment, training, or an apprenticeship.”
