Another year of A Level success at Newham College
Newham College students celebrated their A Level successes at the Stratford Campus yesterday.

Many students learned that their hard work would enable them to progress to their first choice university.
Executive Director of the College’s Stratford Campus, Peter Harris said:
“These strong A Level results have proved to be a great end to what has been a very successful year for the College. Today has been a fantastic day for the A Level students and staff at Newham College. I am proud of what we do here and thrilled at the success of our students.
“Today is a testament to the hard work of our students as well as the, experience, expertise and commitment of our staff. I congratulate all of them on achieving these excellent results and wish all our A2 students every success in their future university studies.
