Sixth Form Result Day - the wait is over

We are delighted to be able to celebrate the success of our A Level and Level 3 vocational qualification results with this year’s students. Our students have worked tirelessly to achieve their results and it is such an honour to see them achieve the grades they deserved for their next steps.
Our students have met the demanding entrance requirements to study at some of the best universities in the country, including Bristol, Cardiff and Oxford to name a few. Individual success stories included Rei Yamada who achieved 3 A grades and 2 A* grades and is going to be enjoying a gap year in Japan before reading Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics at Birmingham University. Mar Mengual achieved 3 A grades and will be going to Exeter University in September to read History and Modern Languages. Jake Coulstock also secured a Distinction* and Distinction in his Double Award Sport Diploma and will be completing his degree in Football Studies at Bedfordshire University, where he has also just found out that they have awarded him a scholarship of £2,500.
We are also very proud of our students who have secured competitive national and regional apprenticeships and traineeships. Owen Llewelyn is already enjoying his apprenticeship at Crewkerne Aqua Centre, Ellie Dismore is due to start at Ashford Solicitors as a Conveyancing Assistant in September and Darla Sutherland will be completing a TA apprenticeship at Hinton St George Primary School. With others in the final stages of interviews for apprenticeships with EDF and Leonardos.
We intend to continue to grow the Sixth Form at Holyrood and are excited to be offering a larger breadth of courses this September to ensure our students are offered and are successfully completing the best possible courses for their future careers. We wish the Class of 2019 all their best in their next endeavours and just want to say one final ‘WELL DONE’!
