Celebrating Student Success – Results Day 2023!

New City College is incredibly proud of all its students who celebrated amazing A Level and Level 3 vocational results on Results Day 2023.

The college bucked the national trend of a decline in high grades – with many students achieving above target and high numbers of BTEC students reaching the top Distinction* level.

Below are just some of our student success stories.

Staying at New City College to complete a third year of study

Progressing to a Software Engineering Apprenticeship with Train Line

“I am really looking forward to starting my Level 4 apprenticeship where I will be doing coding for websites and creating apps. The best thing about college was that I had some really supportive lecturers and tutors and they helped me overcome a few challenges, especially with balancing my part-time job with my studies.”

Progressing to study Dentistry at King’s College University

“The Medics group I was in at college was so helpful to me as I learned a lot about how to apply for Dentistry at uni and I was given lots of opportunities connected with the medical route. The teachers were great because in my second year I was only achieving Cs in Chemistry but they gave me loads of tips on revision and how to remember what I had learnt – and I ended up getting an A! I’m really happy with my results – it was worth the hard work.”



Tower Hamlets campus

Distinction* Distinction* Distinction in Applied Science

Progressing to study Computer Science at University of Westminster

“My teacher was so amazing, he was attentive and patient and took the time to go back and help when I needed extra support. He was always encouraging the class and was so inspiring. I am so pleased with my results because I started doing A Levels at a different college, but decided that wasn’t for me so I took a year out and then came to Tower Hamlets college to study the BTEC in Applied Science. It was the best decision and I am now going to study Computer Science at university!
