and live on Freeview channel 276
Grades achieved by the Whitby students were:
A* - E 99%
A* - C 81%
A* - B 52%
A* - A 25%
All of these are on or above national averages.
Head of School Susan Boyd said 85% of students applying to university got their first choice, compared to 79% nationally.
“But, for us, it’s not about the headlines, it’s about the students,” she said.
"We haven’t got these results accidentally.
"We are ambitious for all of our young people.
"The combination of experienced staff and great pastoral support means we get the best out of Whitby students.”
Among the sixth form college’s highlights this year are students joining health professions, with some going to study medicine, paramedic science and health and social care, with others going to top universities to study History, English, Languages and Geography.
“I am so proud of our students who have worked hard and the sixth form team who have supported them, encouraged them and pushed them every step of the way,” she said.
"They are a credit to our town.”
