I am very proud of my results. In each of my subjects I achieved an A*, which was enough to secure my place at Cambridge University, to study Natural Sciences. Studying at Cambridge has been an aspiration of mine for a long time and the Sixth Form College has helped to make this a reality. I am grateful to the College and my teachers for all their support, enthusiasm and commitment.
After discussing my aspiration to become a doctor with my teachers and Progress Coach, the College has given me loads of really helpful support. I’ve had mock university interviews, advice on writing my personal statement and I’ve taken part in a lot of work experience. During my placement at the Royal Stoke University Hospital I had the opportunity to interact with specialist medical equipment and watched live surgery taking place. I achieved an A* and three As in my results this year and am excited to begin studying Medicine at Nottingham University.
I’d not considered studying at Cambridge University until my Economics teacher encouraged me to explore my full potential. The College arranged for me to go to St Catherine’s College Cambridge to have an interview and stay overnight. I didn’t think that I had a chance of being accepted at such a prestigious institution, but thanks in large part to the commitment, expertise and enthusiasm of College staff I was offered a place. I achieved two A*s and two As in my A Level results, exceeding the conditions of my offer to study at Cambridge and my own expectations.
Unfortunately, last year James was extremely unwell and was unable to attend College, though he continued to complete work at home and was keen to restart again this year.

James is a mentor, supporting other students with their studies, he recently wrote an exam paper for an assessment, including the mark scheme. It has been a pleasure getting to know James and his determination to succeed is admirable.

After College I’m going to study Psychology at Durham University. The College, especially the staff, have encouraged and supported me in reaching my full potential.
I achieved an A* in all three of my A Level courses, which was far more than I ever thought I could.
The support and resources available at the College has helped me to secure a great set of exam results – three Distinction* grades in my BTEC course and an A and B in my A Level subjects – and a place at the prestigious London Contemporary Dance School. I have been given dedicated and personalised support whilst at College by my teachers and through the High Achievers Programme. The facilities at the College are excellent. The Dance Studio is spacious and well equipped and I have used it to rehearse routines for events both in College and the local community.
