Congratulations to the class of 2021 who received their exam results today. The atmosphere in college was fantastic as students celebrated their success with friends, parents and teachers.

This year students achieved a very impressive Level 3 pass rate of 99.4% with 66.1% top grades (A*-B / Dist*-Dist) and 86.7% high grades (A*-C / Dist*-Merit). 

Carmel College Principal, Mike Hill, was delighted. He commented, “We are very pleased to be able to celebrate with our students today as they now embark on a new adventure whether that be a place at university, an apprenticeship or employment. The Class of 2021 have had another tough year having to contend with a changed timetable with a mix of face-to-face and online learning throughout. They have coped really well with the changes and should be so proud of not only their academic achievements, but also their personal achievements too.  Congratulations from all the staff here at Carmel and best wishes for the future.”

This year, five students are continuing their studies at the prestigious Oxbridge Universities and a further six students will be studying Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Science.
