Open Event Celebrates College Successes
Student Ambassadors welcomed potential learners and their families to Ludlow College’s Open Event this week. As well as providing an opportunity for new students to find out about college life it also informed them of the College’s outstanding performance for its A Level and Level 3 results, both of which scored a 100% pass rate this year.
Carl Morris, Head of Ludlow College, commented,“The most common feedback we have from our students is that they greatly benefit from our College’s relatively small class sizes and effective timetabling. We work hard to ensure that students don’t waste time with unnecessary travel and that they can maximise their time to succeed in the studies and make the most of their own time. This is likely to be why the percentage of our students being accepted to Russell Group Universities is higher than the national average and our measure of progress for post-GCSE study is in the top 25% in the country.”
Demonstrations, experiments and presentations run throughout the evening across the College’s provision of A Levels, Level 3 subjects and Apprenticeships. New students explored exciting experiments on fluid mechanics in Physics and watched the chemical reactions of heating magnesium in Chemistry.
In Mathematics, AS student ambassadors Maria Dalle Vedove, Holly Rennel and Louis Naylor created a drawing of a snowman using circle equations and trigonometry. “We are studying circle equations at the moment so we thought it might be a fun way to show them for the Open Event!” said Holly who progressed from Lacon Childe High School earlier this year.
“The facilities are brilliant and it is so great being in town and so close to everything," commented Louis who previously studied at Wigmore High School.
Maria, who progressed from high school in Verona in Italy added, “The College is very good, I was used to such big class sizes before but here I feel like I am taught as an individual and have a much better relationship with my tutor.”
