More than 400 visitors took a closer look at the outstanding facilities on offer to students who study Academic A Levels at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College. Current students made prospective students feel very welcome, showing them around and sharing their own experiences with them.
The college's Open Evening for Year 11 students followed yet another summer of impressive A Level results, with a high number of last year's students now studying at prestigious Medical Schools and Russell Group Universities on the back of their success.
Christina Hook, Head of Sixth Form, said: "It is such a pleasure to welcome so many visitors to our college this evening. We were absolutely delighted with the fantastic exam results attained by our A Level students this year, and it is always tremendously satisfying to see students moving on to such a fabulous range of destinations.
"Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College continues to provide a first-class academic experience for the young people of the local area, and we are committed to helping all of our students to excel."
Jack Deans visited the college with his mum Lynn. Jack said: "I'm planning to go to Sixth Form and preferably here because, from what I have heard, the classes are smaller so you can get more attention and teachers can specialise. I think Tollbar is awesome. They certainly know what they are doing."
Grace Coppock and mum Kate also took a good look around the college. Grace said: "I'm Interested in doing Media Studies, History and Biology at A Level. The teachers have been very good at Tollbar. I have really enjoyed it here."
Louth Academy Year 11 student Eloise Belding visited with her mum Nicola Belding. Eloise said: "I'm currenlty doing a BTEC in Music at Louth Academy. I play guitar. I'm considering my options about further education so having a good look around."
