37% of students obtained triple distinctions in their BTEC National Diploma courses, an increase of 1% from last year.

Mark Vinall, Principal of Palmer’s College said: “We are delighted with the outstanding achievements of our students this year”.

“This superb result reinforces what a fantastic year we have had and I am confident that we will continue to deliver brilliant results again next year”.

He added: “Palmer’s College continues to deliver a first class experience for students as well as excellent value for money for the taxpayer. I offer my congratulations to all the students who passed and all the staff who helped make this happen.”

Ex-Gable Hall student Lana Woolford, 18 attained a fantastic set of results which included all A*s in History, Physics, Maths and Further Maths and secured a place at Exeter University to read Physics. She already has an A in A-level French, which she undertook last year.

Lana from Stanford-le-Hope said: “After all the hard work I’ve put in I was hoping for good results, but nothing like this! I’m absolutely shocked.

She added: “The staff at Palmer’s have all been absolutely brilliant, and always prepared to put in a spare hour when I have needed help. I’ve really enjoyed my time here.”
