Students at Windsor College in St Leonard’s Road saw their efforts pay off during a difficult year when ‘A’ level results came out yesterday.

Kate Webb, who is the Windsor Forest Colleges Group principal that includes the St Leonard’s Road premises, said: “Today is of course a huge recognition of  the incredible achievement of our ‘A’ Level and BTEC students who have shown such grit and determination during the lockdown imposed on them by the pandemic.

"They have triumphed in the most extreme of circumstances, having found the resilience to remain focussed on their studies and committed to their final goal. They are the class of 2020 and I hope they wear that badge with pride and honour. 

“While the grade profiles are currently interim, we can already see an incredibly strong performance across the Sixth Form.”  

Top performer at Windsor Emma Lambert was over the moon with her grades in maths, further maths, photography and physics.

She said: “I am so thankful for the support provided by Windsor College. There is no doubt that if it wasn’t for Steve, my Maths tutor, I would not be going to the University of Bath to study Maths.” 

Humanities stood out this year with Mia Harris achieving As in Business, Sociology and English Language.

She said: “I’m really pleased with my results and looking forward to going to the University College London to study Linguistics."

Rubika Latif joined her an impressive A*A* in politics and history commenting: “I am delighted with my results and excited to be going to the University of Birmingham to study Law. All my teachers at Windsor College have invested a lot of time into helping me reach my full potential throughout my A Levels.”
