Connor Green, Hugh Baird 14 to 16 College student achieved a double 9 at GCSE Science, and 7 in Maths, said:- "I'm really happy the results I've received today. I had a great time at the 14 to 16 College, the support I've had from the tutors and staff has been incredible. My next step is studying A-Levels at the College's South Sefton Campus and from there I hope to go onto University and study a degree in Mechanical Engineering."

Samantha Webley, who studied GCSE English Language, said:- "The support at Hugh Baird College has been brilliant. When we entered online learning during the Pandemic lockdowns, the tutors really helped everyone adjust. I am so delighted to have achieved my GCSE English as I can now go onto to study Health and Social Care at Hugh Baird College."

This year we have seen a tremendous commitment from our students to their studies.
