Lee Probert, Chief Executive and Principal of York College, said: “It’s wonderful to see so many students achieve so well in such a wide range of subjects, and realise such a range of ambitions. Every single A Level entry passed, with most of them achieving high grades! This level of performance is also matched by our Vocational students and only happens as a result of enormous hard work on our students’ part and with great support from their tutors and all our staff, who put our students and their achievements first every day of the academic year.”
