Celebrating success at Macclesfield College

Macclesfield College has been celebrating the College’s end of year results.

Attended by local MP, David Rutley, the celebrations highlighted the outstanding progress the College has made, in recording its best ever results across all levels. Many students have moved on to continue their studies at a higher level, following their successful results at Macclesfield College whether at university, with the College or in a variety of employment/ training opportunities.

David congratulated students on their impressive results at the well-attended event held at Macclesfield College’s student run Silk Room Restaurant.

David commented: “I extend my warmest congratulations to all students and staff at Macclesfield College on a fantastic set of exam results. It was great to have the opportunity to celebrate this success, and staff and students should be proud of their achievements.

“The College does invaluable work to support people in Macclesfield, at whatever stage of their career, to make the most of their learning and career opportunities. I would encourage other local residents interested in enrolling on a course to get in touch with the College to find out more.”

Macclesfield College students have achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in a range of vocational courses across the board. This firmly cements the college as one of the regions leaders, with a gateway to higher education and employment. They are also leading the way for local apprenticeships and have developed strong and well-established relationships with local employers.
