Whether picking up those all-important GCSE results or achieving at entry, level 1, 2, or 3, we would like to wish a massive well done to all our students achieving the results they hoped for.

Among them...


Picking up his GCSE in Maths is the culmination of a busy year for Stockton Riverside College student Alan.

Originally from Ukraine, the acting student has successfully completed his first year of study in the UK with distinction, he saw a script he wrote, loosely based on his own experiences, selected to receive a professional stage reading at The National Theatre’s New Views Festival, and now he has his sights set on one of the world’s leading stage schools in London.

Achieving a well-earned grade 5, the 18-year-old said: “This is another step closer to where I want to be. My Ukrainian qualifications are not recognised here, so having my GCSE Maths means I can now fully commit to my acting and doing the best I possibly can.”


Musical theatre student Ellie, 18, is off to Addict Dance Academy in Leicester after achieving a merit.

Super nervous before seeing her results on paper, she was happy to make the grade.

Dancing since she was five, Ellie smashed her audition at Addict Dance Academy.

She has big ambitions to travel the world touring with singers or working on cruise ships.

Of her time at Stockton Riverside College, Ellie said: "It's been so funny, a huge experience and I have made friends for life."


Emily, 17, from Stillington, is happy to have achieved the Level 2 in Acting here at the college.

Feeling the nerves the night before results days she said seeing learning that she had passed came as a huge relief.

Emily has always wanted to study drama and said she was sold on the college after having a great introduction and its amazing facilities.

Next steps for Emily include continuing to study acting, progressing on to university and dreams of one day teaching or performing.

Eli, Rosie and Ellie

Our art and design students were among those picking up their qualifications this week.

And Ellie, 17, also from Stockton, also achieved in the level 2, and Functional Skills Maths.

Well done to all!
