The summer can really begin now as students from across the region have collected their highly anticipated GCSE results. We joined The City of Liverpool College staff as they welcomed students from their GCSE re-sit programme as they opened their envelopes at the Learning Exchange, bright and early this morning.

he City of Liverpool College has seen another successful round of results for its GCSE’s in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects. This year’s high achieving results build on last year’s, after the college received a £2.5 million grant from the Liverpool Local Enterprise Partnership, which saw a full renovation of its labs, creating a state-of-the-art STEM centre. The centre allows students to use all of the latest technologies and applications to gain real-world experience.
Head of Sixth Form, Michelle Bibby said: “The results that we have seen this year are a true testament to the outstanding teaching that we have across the college. It’s always fantastic to see students who have worked so hard do so well. In particular, it’s incredibly encouraging to see our adult learners achieve great things, demonstrating that it’s never too late to learn.
“We have adults from all walks of life who are either looking for a complete career change or simply wanting to improve on their skills that they weren’t able to gain during school, often because of personal reasons or learning needs. It’s fantastic to see so many of them coming to the college to achieve their dreams. Whether they’re going on to study at degree level, start a career in nursing or engineering, we’re delighted to be able to support them.”
This year’s results saw some fantastic achievements from students who had overcome adversity. One such student, Nina Myhan, 26 from Liverpool, received a grade 9 in biology, chemistry and physics and an 8 in both English language and maths.
Nina said: “Coming to The City of Liverpool College was the first time that I had been in education for five years having struggled with exams at school due to health issues, and the support I have received has been amazing. Despite becoming homeless on the day of the exam period started, I had a huge amount of help from my personal tutors, who gave me a room to store my learning materials while my family and I were having to stay in hotels.
“I know that I wouldn’t have been able to pass the exams if it wasn’t for the support I received. I’m so excited for the future and am looking forward to going on to study pre-access science at the college, before going to university to fulfil my dream of becoming a zoologist.”
Our congratulations go out to everyone who received their results today!
