Of the A-Level subjects, 26 out of 31 recorded 100 per cent pass rate, the college has confirmed.

Students have achieved a 42 per cent A* to B pass rate.

Paul Riley, Principal at Worthing College, said: “We are very proud of our students and of the results we have achieved in what has been a particularly difficult year.

“They have shown great determination in adversity and worked hard to achieve their grades.

“We must also recognise our staff and the dedication shown by their teachers as they have supported their students in completing their studies in circumstances that none of us could have predicted.

“We congratulate our students, many of whom will be going into their next steps – be that higher education or employment – with confidence.

“We will also be supporting those students whose grades may be lower than expected.

“We support our students throughout their education journey and our priority is helping them find the right pathway for them – it is no different this year.

“We also have to remember that, given the unusual nature of this year’s assessment process, our pass rates could increase following any recalculations.”
