Damien Moore praised staff and students as they celebrated their A Level results at King George V College in Southport. 

The Southport MP was delighted to join KGV CEO and Principal Michelle Brabner, along with members of her senior management team including Chair of Governors Ronnie Fell and Sixth Form Centre Lead Anne-Marie Francis.

Damien Moore said: “I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to George V College in Southport earlier today. I would like to thank Michelle Brabner for her kind invitation. 

“I would like to congratulate students and staff at KGV and schools and colleges around Southport on their results this year, during a time which has been extremely challenging to everyone. 

“There were students with great success stories today with many of them going on to study at universities around the country. 

“I would like to congratulate KGV College students and staff for achieving a high number of subjects with a 100% pass rate this year.

“They should be proud - they have had to do a lot of work in a very short space of time. 

“The college did share some concerns about the way a handful of students were downgraded, and I will be liaising further with the DfE and Ofqual about these. I very much hope they will be rectified via appeal. 

“I am looking forward to returning to King George V College in a few months to meet some of the new pupils starting their new school year.” 

A high number of subjects at KGV including, Further Maths, Philosophy, Geography, History, Art, Media, Film Studies and English saw students secured 100% pass rates and impressive numbers of high grades.

Success was not limited to A level. The college also received a 100% pass rate for BTEC Advanced Level Extended Diplomas with over 90% of these at Distinction grade or above.

Vocational students can set their sights at the best universities and employment with results like these.

CEO and Principal Michelle Brabner said: “We are so proud of all our learners. The excellent A Level results reflect the hard work and dedication of KGV students and staff.  Equally, our BTEC students have excelled themselves, securing very impressive high grades.

“The class of 2020 faced real challenges and they are truly a credit to the college, their families and themselves.

“Our students have achieved such excellent results that many will now have their free choice of university including prestigious Russell Group destinations.

“We know all our leavers will go onto great things and we wish them every success.”

Ronnie Fell, Chair of Governors said: “After a year in which we have had a change in CEO Principal, an Ofsted visit and an extensive period of national lockdown, we can be very proud of our Good College status and it is wonderful to see the talent and resilience of our students recognised.

“On behalf of the governing board I would like to congratulate all students and staff, whose hard work and commitment has produced such impressive outcomes.

”The College will be fully opening in September and looks forward to welcoming returning students and meeting our new intake who we know will be part of the next chapter in the college’s success story."

Enrolment for September is now on and all students who have been offered a place at KGV should enrol online using their unique link as soon as possible.For more details about KGV College please visit: www.kgv.ac.uk
