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!
