A Level Results 2016
South Dartmoor Sixth Form students have once again achieved a stunning selection of A Level and Level 3 results.
Students on technical courses have performed well with a 100% pass rate for the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport, with a particularly good outcome for Alex Woodgates who achieved three Distinction* grades for this qualification. In addition to Alex's commitment to his studies he also played in the U20 England CP Football Team in 2016 and the U19 National Development League for the Chelsea FC Foundation Academy, the latter being based at South Dartmoor Community College. Alex has shown outstanding ability in both his sport and studies and thoroughly deserves his success in both.
