Included in the group of young people who received their results last week were students who had elected to be educated from home.

Over 30 home-educated students from the College were awarded grades in Maths and English.

These grades were awarded based on the higher of their tutor’s predicted grades, or the calculated results from the exam board. The calculations were based on College predictions, historical results, and national data.

NWSLC provide support for students in Year 10 and 11 from a variety or backgrounds who choose to be home-educated.

This year, nearly 60 home-educated students have been supported by NWSLC.

More than 30 of them were awarded grades for GCSE English language and Maths. Around 20 students will now progress into the Further Education programme.

Chief Executive and Principal of NWSLC, Marion Plant OBE FCGI, commented on the student’s successes.

Marion said: “We are very proud of our home-educated students who have derived enormous benefit from being supported to study for GCSEs in Maths and English through the College.

“Their studies have been considerably disrupted this year and we congratulate them on maintaining a strong focus on their work and achieving so well.”

Dacey Mathews, a home-educated College student, started on the programme back in Year 10 and has secured herself work experience at the College’s very own nursery. Mathews achieved Grade 5’s in English and Maths.

Dacey will study the Childcare course over at the College’s Nuneaton and Wigston campuses.

Home-educated student, Sophie Fabris, received a Grade 9 for her GCSE in English. Upon gaining the newly-achieved qualification, Fabris will now have the opportunity to study her A-Levels at Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth I College.

Kaya Plant, another home-educated student, was awarded a Grade 7 in GCSE English. Plant is planning to study A-Level English literature, and then go on to train as an English teacher.
