Hundreds of eager A Level students queued up to collect their results from the College’s High Pavement Sixth Form today (Thursday 15th August).

Among those cel­e­brat­ing their suc­cess are twin sis­ters Jes­si­ca and Heather Daniels who received six A’s and one B grade between them, and are now both off to Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty. Heather will be study­ing Bio­med­ical Sci­ence and Jes­si­ca, a degree in Crim­i­nol­o­gy. Heather said: I’m hap­py that we both achieved the grades we need­ed to get into uni­ver­si­ty.

Aspir­ing producer/​director Shaki­rah Jel­ley, 19, from Bul­well, wants to use her per­son­al expe­ri­ences of men­tal health to sup­port oth­ers. Despite suf­fer­ing with anx­i­ety and deper­son­al­i­sa­tion dis­or­der, her hard work and deter­mi­na­tion paid off. She now has the grades she needs to progress to Not­ting­ham Trent Uni­ver­si­ty to study Media Pro­duc­tion. She said: I feel real­ly good about my results, and my fam­i­ly are so pleased for me. I espe­cial­ly want to thank Zoe and Lau­ra, two of my lec­tur­ers, as they’ve been absolute­ly amaz­ing – two of the best teach­ers I’ve ever had!”

Also, one stu­dent achieved the acco­lade of high­est per­former in OCR’s A Lev­el Geog­ra­phy and has secured a place at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Oxford.

Despite the gru­elling two-year pro­gramme this year, our ded­i­cat­ed staff have worked tire­less­ly to sup­port and encour­age our stu­dents, ensur­ing they all reach their poten­tial and are able to progress to the next stage of their jour­ney, whether that’s a high­er lev­el course at Col­lege or uni­ver­si­ty, an appren­tice­ship, or employment. 

We’re so proud of our stu­dents and wish them all the very best for the future.
