Results & Achievements

Students often arrive at Norton College having previously had a relatively unsuccessful educational experience and often feel they have failed. In actual fact, the education system has just not been able to meet their needs effectively. Consequently, students have a negative view of their ability and feel they can’t achieve. We aim to turn this around and create a ‘can do’ attitude where students are able to achieve to the best of their ability.

The College aims to create situations that allow students to achieve nationally recognised qualifications both academically and vocationally that will act as the foundation for future career progression. 

Students are able to gain Functional Skills qualifications, GCSE qualifications plus Open College Network certification. The College also has introduced in house certification for students who are working towards achieving Functional Skills. 


Celebrating Achievements

Academic outcomes are important and we will always strive to achieve the highest standards, however it is also important to celebrate these achievements with parents/carers and with other students around College as it enables students to feel positive about their learning and to build on their successes.

Here at Norton College, we have a “Proud Board” where we post our students’ achievements for everyone to see and celebrate.
