A Level and BTEC Success for Altrincham College students
Year 13 students are celebrating today following the school’s best A Level and vocational results yet, showing our Key Stage 5 provision goes from strength to strength! These results are a reflection of the hard work and commitment of both students and their teachers during the past two years. Headteacher Kim Earle recognises that it has been a difficult time for this year’s cohort, who have faced lots of uncertainty and disruption to their final year at school. She said, “I am incredibly proud of our young people and they should be proud of themselves, knowing that their hard work has paid off. September brings new beginnings and I know our students are very much looking forward to the next challenge in the lives, as they leave us for university, employment or a higher-level apprenticeship. I wish them every success for the future.” Head of Sixth Form, Andrew Keegan added, “our students have adapted extremely well in such difficult circumstances and I wish to congratulate each and every one of them on these well-deserved achievements. They have, without exception, conducted themselves with sheer determination and we are very proud of them.”
Some examples of our students’ success stories include, Bob (A*A*AB) who will study Maths at Warwick University, Iraj (A*AA) who is heading to the University of Manchester to study Economics and Alicja (AAA) who is reading Earth Science, also at the University of Manchester. Harry and Melissa have both accepted places at the University of York to study Law and Biochemistry, respectively. In addition to a fantastic set of A Level results, students studying vocational subjects have every reason to celebrate. Student Grace received a distinction star and a distinction in BTEC Fashion and is looking forward to studying Fashion, Buying and Merchandising at the University of Manchester. Dan received two distinction stars and has accepted a place at Loughborough University to continue studying Sport. Reece who studied BTEC Creative Digital Media, has already started a degree-level apprenticeship with Barclays.
Student Iraj said, “It has been a nerve-wracking morning but I believe my hard work has been rewarded. Altrincham College is such a great school and the staff have been very supportive and really looked after us.” Law student Harry said of today, “I am over the moon with my results and I can’t wait to go to York. Without all the help and support from my teachers, these results would not have been possible.”
