Hazelwood Integrated College celebrated an excellent set of A Level results, with 150 students, the college’s largest ever sixth form, achieving 100 per cent success (grades A* - E) across 27 subjects.

The Whitewell Road school’s top-performing subjects this year were Business Studies, ICT, Sports Studies, Construction, Health & Social Care and Science.

Principal, Mrs Kathleen Gormley said: “Our new sixth form curriculum, which was introduced in September 2013 has clearly had a positive impact on results at A Level. We promise all of our students a seven year pathway which will leave them university ready, further education ready or work ready. The introduction of this curriculum has led to a 12 per cent increase on last year’s results in students achieving three or more A Levels. The hard work and determination of our students and staff has to be commended.”

She continued: “Our varied curriculum offer has led to students obtaining places on new and innovative HE & FE courses in subjects such as Cyber Security, Clean Technology and Adventure & Extreme Sports, as well as the more traditional subjects such as Nursing, Finance and Leadership & Management.

“A number of our students have secured employment in areas such as Make-up Artistry, Construction, Retail and Hospitality.

“Hazelwood’s integrated status is truly reflected in our results, with our top achieving boys and girls coming from the international, Protestant and Catholic communities.”
