Congratulations to students from our High Pavement Sixth Form who collected their A Level results today (18th August). For many of our students, their A Levels were the first formal exams they have ever sat, after their GCSE exams were cancelled in 2020.

There are lots of standout stories, including Bisma who came to the UK four years ago from Italy. She learned English at the same time as completing her studies and today received her A Level results, and the news she got the grades she needed to study her dream degree of Real Estate at NTU.

I moved here from Italy 4 years ago and language was a huge barrier for me at first as I used to struggle understanding sentences. As time went by, I picked up the language and my English got much better. The past few years have been hard and there have been some turbulent times, but I am happy with my results – I worked hard for them. 

It has always been a dream of mine to get into Real Estate and I got the grades I need to study it at Nottingham Trent University this September. 

 — Bisma Ahmed, A Level student.

Vitor, who came to High Pavement 2 years ago from a new area. He loved the chance to make friends here and was thrilled when he found out he got the BBB he needed to get into Surrey Uni to study International Business and hopes to spend some of his time studying in America.

I moved to Nottingham 2 years ago from London and didn’t know many people. Coming to college was a great opportunity to make new friends and the help and support I got from my tutors was fantastic, I wouldn’t be here without them. 

I am really excited to be going to the University of Surrey in September to study Business with a year abroad and hope to be able to go and study in America. 

 — Vitor De Souza, A Level student.

Angel and Jake, who are both off to Sheffield Uni, found out they achieved an impressive set of A’s and A*’s and Maisy, who despite having time away from her studies, achieved A*AB and is off to Uni of Liverpool in September to study Criminology.

I got A*AB and am excited to be going to the University of Liverpool in September to study Criminology. I’ve made so many new friends and really enjoyed my time here as my teachers were all amazing and so helpful. 

 — Maisy Rooth Corder

After a difficult 2 years of disruption due to Covid it has been fantastic to celebrate our student’s exam results today. For many of our learners, these were the first exams they have ever taken, and their success is a reflection on the tremendous efforts of our teaching and support staff who have been with them every step of the way. It was great to see so many students secure the destinations they wanted whether that be their place at University or the grades to support their future career or higher apprenticeship pathway. Not only have we seen some amazing exam results but also the growth and development of some fantastic human beings who have new friendships for life. 

 — Adam Beazeley, Head of Centre at High Pavement Sixth Form.

Although A Lev­el results day is a time for cel­e­bra­tion, we know that it can be a real­ly stress­ful time, especially if didn’t get the results you were expecting. It’s really important not to panic and there is a wealth of advice and support available including joining Nottingham College through clearing.

Join us this September!

There is still time to join us this September! Whether you’re looking for a university level course through Clearing or want to join us as a school leaver, it’s not too late!
