We would like to congratulate our Year 13 pupils on some fantastic A-Level and BTEC results this year. As a year group, they have been superb ambassadors for our school, JTMAT and the wider community. The results they have achieved today are a testament to their hard work and commitment.
Our pupils have worked hard to secure places at top universities, sought-after places on apprenticeships and a number have also secured employment. We are immensely proud of the achievements of each and every one of our pupils. However, special congratulations go to Amelia Campion and Louis Jones, who achieved A*, A*, A, as well as Ophelia Hawkley and Danny Douglas who achieved A*, A, A.
Amelia Campion, who has secured a place at The University of Manchester to study Geography, said, “I am over the moon! I could not have done it without the teachers. I am excited to start my new chapter which is the next step in pursuing a career in climate change or disaster management.”
This cohort of pupils were studying for their GCSEs at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic; this, combined with the information in the national media regarding the significant ‘drop’ in A-Level grades expected this year, make the achievements of these pupils even more impressive.
We would like to give a huge thank you on behalf of the pupils, to our staff, who have worked with and supported pupils during their time with us. It’s certainly been a team effort!
Mr R Giles, Head of Sixth Form said, “This group of pupils have been a joy to work with and the tenacity and commitment that they have shown to their studies has set a very high standard for future cohorts. I am really pleased that so many are going onto such fantastic post-18 opportunities and I hope that they all keep in touch’.
We wish all of our pupils well in the next phase of their education, or as they enter employment, and look forward to welcoming them back to inspire future generations of sixth formers.
