Electrical students Dom and Josh were delighted when they opened their GCSE English results. Dom got a 6 and is now progressing onto the Level 2 and Josh got a 5 and is off to do an Electrical apprenticeship.
 
‪Luci left school at 15 so came to college to do her Maths and English GCSEs in which she got 5 and 8 and is now off to do a Maternity course at Swansea University before training to be a midwife.‬
 
 
Stuart King, Head of English and Maths said: “We are very proud of our learners who have worked so hard for their GCSEs.”
 
“Many of them are studying alongside a full-time course, apprenticeship or full-time job, which can be really tough.”
 
“It’s been fantastic to see so many smiles across our campuses today.”
 
GCSE results day can be a stressful time for many, so Bath College has had careers advisers on hand to talk to anyone who picked up results today to offer them impartial advice about what their next steps are.
