Exam Results 2023

A big thank you to the students, their families, the local schools and our partner Alternative Provisions for supporting the smooth running of exams.

Results Overview

The final results for ACE students were commendable and reflected the work and effort that students had put in and most importantly, they allow students to move on to the post 16 destination of their choice.

There was an increase in the number of grade 4/C obtained by our students in maths and English, while results were especially strong for:

GCSE Art and Design

Home cooking skills

NCFE Health and Social Care

NCFE Occupational Studies

Our Functional Skills maths and English results continue to provide a great springboard for college with 8 passes at Level 2 (the equivalent to a grade 4/C) and 27 passes at Level 1.

Results Day

On results day, it was a pleasure to see so many students come in to collect their results and to share their joy and excitement and most importantly, to confirm their plans for their next steps in education and training

Certificate Collections

Exam certificates for the summer 2023 season will be available for collection from the school reception between 9am and 3.00pm from late November/early December.

If the student is unable to collect the certificates, a nominated person may collect them on their behalf. The nominate person must bring a completed Authorisation for Certificate Collection.

The nominated person must provide photographical identification of themselves e.g., passport/drivers’ licence. Identification without a photograph will not be accepted.

Certificates cannot be posted out to students.


We are delighted that once again, all ACE students, working with our Careers Team left Ace with post 16 destination places in place. We will be contacting out students in October time to check that things are going well and to offer any further support that they might need.

  • Barnfield College – 13
