Students at NHC are celebrating as they collect their GCSE results.
This year, 1,002 NHC students sat their maths and English GCSE exam. Most of these students studied maths and English alongside their chosen vocational courses to help equip them with the skills that employers require.
Many of the students will now have the foundation they need to progress their studies or embark on their careers.
Kit Davies, Principal of North Hertfordshire College, said:
“This year has been unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before and quite exceptional in so many ways. All our GCSE students collecting results today deserve our heartfelt congratulations for their resilience and hard work in the most trying of circumstances.
During the COVID crisis, our teachers have done incredibly well continuing to teach, support, and enthuse our students across the GCSE portfolio. I am incredibly proud of all our students and staff”.
Among those collecting their GCSE results today were Samiya Miah who achieved a grade 4 in maths. Her tutor Laura Hoar said: “I am so proud of how far Samiya has come. She was scoring low when she first started and has progressed so much with hard work and determination to gain her grade 4.”
Kyra James achieved a grade 4 in maths. Speaking on Kyra’s success their tutor Suzann Wells said: “Her mock assessments improved throughout the year. It was great to see how Kyra has progressed from quite a shy learner to someone who was confident with her communication as well as her maths skills.”
Robyn Wisker-Stilling achieved a grade 5 in maths. She said: “I am absolutely delighted! I worked exceptionally hard with the support from my teachers and studying independently at home.”
