Students celebrate A level success
Year 13 students celebrated outstanding A Level results this morning at King Edward VII with smiles and tears of joy. Students have worked with relentless diligence, passion and pride over the past two years and this morning marked the opening of a life time journey of opportunity and personal success.
Ms Byrne stated, “We are delighted with the achievements of our year 13 students. We are so proud of every single student, and the community, I am sure, is absolutely delighted to hear of yet another year of strong success in their local area.
A range of destinations have been secured including places at prestigious Russell Group and other highly regarded universities. In addition many students have been successful in securing apprenticeship opportunities with leading companies. Amy Allsop, Head Girl, has been offered an apprenticeship at the international Deloitte company, whilst Sian Blake has already commenced her apprenticeship at Boots UK.
Jade Jordan who achieved AAA (History, Psychology and English Literature), stated, “I’m so happy and can’t wait to study history at East Anglia”
Bethan Brown has dedicated much of her time to playing the baritone horn. This, combined with distinction grades in production arts and music has led to a place in the prestigious Birmingham Conservatoire.
Daniel Walker achieved A* in Business, A* History, A in Maths and a further A* grade in his Extended Project Qualification. He said, “these are very pleasing results. I was regularly working up to 10 hours a day over the revision period and now I’m off to the University of Nottingham in September to study economics”.
Charlotte Cory having achieved A B C (Graphics, Media Studies, Photography) has taken the apprenticeship route stating that, “Apprenticeship was always my first choice and I’m working for a digital marketing company where they will pay for my degree next year. I’m so excited and I’m off to celebrate my results.”
Tiegan Adcock has also secured an apprenticeship with a para-legal solicitors’ firm with a view of completing a degree through the company. “I can’t believe my results, I really thought I couldn’t do it but I stuck with it and pushed myself through the pressure and achieved BBC. It was worth it!”
All the staff at King Edward VII would like to publically thank the parents for their support over the past four years.
Preparation for A Level study does not begin in year 12 but much earlier. If parents are supportive and encourage educational engagement at home, students are more likely to reach their potential. Year 13 are evidence of this!
Well done Year 13
