Speaking on A-level results day, Catherine Hill, Deputy Principal at Blackpool and the Fylde College, said:

“Many congratulations to all students across the region who are today celebrating their A-level results.

"Blackpool and The Fylde College is proud of the commitment and hard work shown by our students in achieving such a strong set of results with 99% of students passing their exams. 

"Our students have received outstanding results in our range of technical and professional courses with almost 80% of BTEC students achieving high grades. This is the equivalent to three grades A*-C at A-level and represents an increase of over 6% on last year.

"We are particularly encouraged to see such a high proportion of our students choosing to progress to higher education at our dedicated University Centre in central Blackpool. Here you can study for a degree awarded by Lancaster University which is among the top ten UK universities. There are nearly 60 degree programmes on offer all designed in collaboration with employers to secure lifelong career opportunities.  For further details or to apply contact: 01253 504343 or check online.”
