More than 100 Year 10 students from Cleethorpes Academy applied to go on a taster day to Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, the largest group to do so since the academy opened.

The students, who are considering studying for academic A Levels at the college in the future with a view to university or a high profile apprenticeship, spent an afternoon taking part in subjects ranging from Art to English, Maths and Science, and meeting prospective teachers.

Cleethorpes Academy achieved its best ever GCSE results last summer and many students there are also taking part in the York University Shine Project, which encourages them to consider further education as an option.

Student Chutikran Meaunkam (14), who took part in Art classes at the college Taster Day, said: "I am really excited to come here to study. It is absolutely amazing and I want to study for my A Levels at Tollbar."

Richard Foster, Deputy Head of Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College, said: "It is fantastic to see so many students from Cleethorpes Academy wanting to join us at the Sixth Form College. In recent years we have had quite a number of students study A Levels here from Cleethorpes, but this is the most interest we have seen from one year group by far."

Applications for the September 2017 intake at Tollbar MAT Sixth Form College are at their highest ever recorded, with 390 students applying to study there.

Following their A Level results last summer, 100% of Tollbar students whose first choice was to attend university achieved that aim. A number of other students gained high-profile apprenticeships with leading UK companies.
