Cameron's pat on the back for town's college
PRIME Minister David Cameron has congratulated staff and students at Harlow College after they achieved their best A-level results to date this summer.
During a meeting with Harlow MP Robert Halfon, the PM praised the college for achieving a 100 per cent pass rate at grades A*-E for the first time.
“Harlow College shows that if students work hard and are well supported they can achieve world class results,” said Mr Cameron. “I wish the students all the very best for the future.”
Mr Halfon said the results ranked the college top out of 230 further education and tertiary colleges in England according to Government data.
“I’m not at all surprised that they are now number one,” he said. “Having visited the college on a number of occasions, the commitment and determination of the students and teachers to achieve excellence is profoundly clear.”
“The new number one status is one of the best things to happen to Harlow. I am confident our community will come to be known as a magnet for aspirational people and businesses.”
