A Level Success
Following another successful year for the college, students have been picking up their A level results today. Yet again there have been some outstanding successes. Notable amongst these are Patrick Mellor, who achieved three of the top A* grades, and is off to Oriel College Oxford to read Chemistry; Amy Brewer is going to Liverpool to read Veterinary Science; Rachel Morris is off to Durham to read Biological Sciences; Euan McQuade is going to Exeter to read Natural Sciences and Patryk Wasniewski is going to Leeds to read Neuroscience. These are just a small sample of the wide range of courses that students are moving on to study, which include subjects as diverse as Law, Primary School Teaching and Computer Game Development.
Complementing the college’s continued academic success, we have seen a large number of our students choosing to take up exciting employment and apprenticeship opportunities in the local community. For example, Matthew Dixon has already begun his work on trading standards for North Yorkshire County Council. Following support from the Business Friends of the school, Callum Suffield has earned his place on an apprenticeship with Sector Insurance. We also have students who will travelling the world, with Hugh English studying, singing and playing football in the USA.
Headteacher, Emma Lambden said ‘I am delighted to see so many students achieve what they had aimed for. We are committed to ensuring that everybody that attends our sixth form college moves on to exciting and appropriate courses and careers. Yet again we have had notable success in achieving this.’
