This year, students and staff at Petroc achieved our best ever GCSE resit results.
With more than 100 learners exceeding their expected grades, a 100% increase in the number of students achieving a grade 5 or above, and 10% more learners achieving resit grades of 4-9 compared to last year, it truly was a day for celebrations.
This year, our English and Maths teams piloted an innovative new curriculum which has pushed the boundaries for our learners, and enabled them to achieve their very best and go further in life.
"We are incredibly proud of our student’s results" said Sean Mackney, Principal and CEO at Petroc. "Having to retake GCSE’s as a recent school leaver or as an adult learner can be pretty tough, but we are here to help and support everyone, enabling them to continue with their studies, progress into employment and go further in life."
Thanks to these outstanding results, more adults learners than ever are able to progress onto Access to HE and Further Education courses - allowing them to study a degree on their doorstep.
