EARL Mortimer College students sat BTECs instead of A-levels - and all 13 entrants came away with passes.

A number of the Leominster group came away with distinction grades to the delight of staff.

On average students achieved a Grade C equivalent at A-level and were all accepted at their first choice of university.

Assistant principal and head of Sixth Form Nigel Maddock congratulated the year group.

"The college has continued to strive to improve outcomes year on year in the Sixth Form in partnership with our dedicated staff and young people," he added.

"In addition the college also achieved its best AS level results with 12% attaining A grades."
