Results 2019
I am delighted to share that all students at The Oakes College Cambridge have been supported on to their chosen destination, going on to either one of their first choice destinations at university, high-quality apprenticeship, or have already secured employment. The sustained commitment to achievement of the staff and students at The Oakes has enabled our learners to achieve their potential and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the staff and students for their hard work, with 99.6% achieving A*-E grades across a range of academic and applied subjects:

2019    %
A*-A     13
A*-B     36
A*-C     62
A*-E     99.6

Particularly noteworthy were the performances of Jenny Jamieson, recent winner of the Cambridge News Star of the Year Award, who achieved a triple Distinction in her studies. Leah Smith and Luke Carlson, amongst others, achieved a string of top grades providing a launching pad for their futures. We would like to congratulate our students and wish them the very best of luck for the future.  It has been a pleasure watching our students grow into inspirational independent adults.
