Settle College

Be the best you can be!

This is what we instil in our students when they join us at Settle College in Year 7, fast forward five years and those same students will be receiving their GCSE results.  

We were delighted with this year’s GCSE results. Seven students received the top grades (7 or above) in every single subject. This constitutes more than 8% of the cohort. Three of those were boys, which bucks the national trend this year. Rosie Pettifer who achieved nine qualifications at grade 9 and two at grade 8 said, “I’m really happy and shocked. I would like to thank all my teachers for their support, encouraging and inspiring me to succeed since Year 7”. Rosie is continuing to study at Settle College, taking Maths, Physics, Geography and Further Maths. Elliot Belt has an apprenticeship locally in Joinery and shall study at Craven College, he thanked staff for the extra support provided in lessons to ensure he achieved his best.

If you were unable to attend the Open Evening held in September, you can arrange to have a tour of school by our Student Services team, please contact them via email to arrange a date The deadline for September 2020 admissions is the 31st October 2019. 


Next Steps…

Once students have completed their GCSE’s, they have the opportunity to continue with their studies at Settle College Sixth Form. Current students have recently, marked another year of excellent academic results and personal achievements.  Many achieved the top grades of A*, A and B with a 99% A*- E pass rate. Excellent results in Vocational Business and notable success above national averages for both A*- B and A*- C were found in A-Levels in Art, Drama, English Language, English Literature, French, Geography and History. 

The majority of the cohort are destined for university, with over 75% of students accepted into their first choice university. Others have secured apprenticeships and employment, and some are taking a break from education travelling the world on a gap year. Katharine Tarbox, deputy head girl who achieved an A* in English Literature, an A in Drama and an A in French, said: “I am so pleased with the results I have achieved and to get into my first choice university, the hard work I have put in and the support and help from my teachers has all paid off.” Katharine is going to study English Literature at the University of Edinburgh following a gap year.

Deputy head boy, Jack Pinder achieved an A in Geography, A in Sports Studies and Distinction* in CTEC Business. Having formerly questioned whether to do A-Levels, he has shown how hard work and determination pays off. Jack is going to study Real Estate at Nottingham University and regardless of his unconditional offer has shown tenacity in achieving excellent outcomes.

The Sixth Form open evening takes place on the 14th November from 6:00pm, come along and meet the staff to find out more about what we can offer. We will also be holding taster lessons from Monday 16th December and this is open to anyone wishing to see the types of lessons that occur at Settle College. For further information on Sixth Form courses, and details about joining our inclusive Sixth Form, contact Mr. Simon Murphy, Director of Sixth Form. 

Whichever path your child may take after their GCSE’s, we take pride in celebrating all students on their own personal successes; encouraging, nurturing and ensuring every student can be the best they can be.
