18 students achieved three or more A* grades.
 
17 subjects had a 100% pass rate this year with 84% of total grades at A*-C, and two thirds of grades across the whole college in the ‘high grade’ A*-B bracket.

Student Elle-Mae said "I've really loved Woodhouse, the teachers and the friends I've made. It's been the best two years of my life."
 
The college had some brilliant individual subject results too - our sociology students got 19 A* grades and in Art and Drama over 50% of students got A*/A grades.

Principal John Rubinstein said "As ever, I am extremely proud of how hard our students have worked. Last year’s results were our best for ten years and the second best sixth form college in England. This year we have maintained that very high level across the curriculum (except for a dip in maths which faced the new harder syllabus this year). Our further maths students did brilliantly, our best ever.
 
And thanks also to our amazing staff who teach, inspire, encourage, push, help and support our students all year long."
