Congratulations to our Upper Sixth, who are celebrating an excellent set of A-Level and BTEC results this year, having achieved highly across the board. The vast majority have gained a place at their first-choice university destination with 42% going onto Russell Group universities.
The Class of 2023 will be studying an impressive range of degree subjects – from STEM subjects Medicine, Veterinary Science, Physics, Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence and Mechanical Engineering to English, Human Geography, Law, Business & Finance and Real Estate.
Students will be taking up places at prestigious universities including UCL, Kings College London, the University of Nottingham, Cardiff University and the University of Bristol. Meanwhile, others have chosen to take a gap year, with plans for exciting opportunities including a wildlife conservation course in Namibia.
Charlotte found out this morning that she had achieved AAA in Biology, Chemistry and Spanish and has gained a place at her first choice of university; she will be studying Medicine at the highly acclaimed Kent and Medway Medical School (KMMS) in Canterbury in September.
‘I’m very happy as I’ve done better than I expected, and I’ve got into my first choice of uni! I’ve also had an offer from Cardiff but I think my heart is set on KMMS as it’s one of the newer medical schools and is really innovative.”
Another pupil to have excelled is Kieran, who gained AAA in Computer Science, Maths and Physics and will be reading Computer Science & Artificial Intelligence at the University of Nottingham.
Singer Songwriter Mitzi has also gained a place at her first choice of university and will be studying English Language & Linguistics at Kings College London. Alongside life as a uni student, Mitzi, who has already released two singles, will be continuing with her musical career in London.
Heads of School Jack and Roy are also celebrating places at their first choice of universities and will be reading Physics at King’s College London and Applied Medical Science at UCL respectively.
Mr Jenkins said “Congratulations to all our students who have worked so hard to achieve these impressive results, particularly as they have never sat a public examination before. This is a year group with a diverse range of interests and talents, and it is fantastic to see that they will be fulfilling their ambitions, whether that be at university, a gap year or a career. I am very proud of the way this year group have worked as a team to lead the College and wish them all the best for the future.
I must also say a huge thank you to all of their teachers who have been a huge part of the successes that we are celebrating today. As a small school, our teachers are able to focus on each individual during their Sixth Form journey in order to prepare them for life beyond school and we can see real evidence of that today.”
