17th August 2023

Congratulations to our amazing Class of 2023! We were thrilled to see so many happy, smiling faces in college as students celebrated their results.

Our outstanding results are testament to all the hard work our students and staff have put in over the last two years. Students achieved an impressive Level 3 Pass rate of 99.3% with 62% top grades (A*-B / Dist*-Dist) and 85.2% high grades (A*-C / Dist*-Merit). 

We can also confirm that this year’s results place Carmel as:
-One of the TOP 5 Sixth Form Colleges nationally
-The TOP Sixth Form College in Merseyside
(The Times %A*/A*-B Grades 18/08/23)

Carmel College Principal, Janet Gater, was delighted. She commented, “We are incredibly proud of all of our students and the outstanding results they have achieved today. Our young people have shown resilience, commitment and tireless determination and thoroughly deserve the success they have achieved.

“A significant number of students achieved high grades, enabling fantastic progression to competitive destinations, whether that be university, degree-apprenticeships or employment. It has been a genuine pleasure to support all of our young people to reach their goals and we know that they will make a valuable contribution to society – we are excited to see what the future holds!”

This year, five students are continuing their studies at prestigious Oxbridge Universities and a further twelve students will be studying Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science courses. We are really proud of all our students who are now ready to progress onto their next steps. Here is a snapshot of some outstanding student achievements.
