Godalming College A-level students have been praised for achieving ‘stellar’ results.

College head Emma Young said: “Congratulations to all our wonderful students on their fantastic achievements – we are so, so proud of you.

“This cohort of students have had the most disruption to their education since the Second World War, but they coped so admirably with it.

“Their results are even more stellar given this context, particularly as this is the first time these students have written public examinations.

“As a college we pride ourselves on our strong sense of community and this is a day for the entire college community to celebrate what are some of our best results ever.

“Our amazing, dedicated teachers have done a brilliant job in guiding, supporting and helping our students during the past two difficult years.

“So have our fabulous support staff and trustees who work tirelessly and are crucial to the success of the college. I also think it is important to acknowledge and thank families and carers for their support too.

“The spirit of determination and resilience has been very evident this year, which will stand them in very good stead for their futures.

“Results never ultimately define you – individual talents, values and skills are far more important.

“We will miss this very special class of 2022 but it is definitely time to now look forward and focus on their progression to their next step, whether that be higher education, an apprenticeship, employment or a gap year.

“I wish them all the very best for the future. Well done again to our 2022 cohort.”
