A Level Results
After months of waiting, students of the Royal Alexandra and Albert School came into school to collect their A Level results today.
Many students achieved a crop of top grades and places at leading universities including one student who gained a place to read Anthropology at Oxford University. There were particularly strong performances in the sciences with around half of Biology, Chemistry or Physics students gaining A*-B.
There were many individual success stories including Lewis Wilkinson who achieved an A in Business and Bs in PE and Psychology. This secured him a place to read Psychology and Criminology at Loughborough University and pursue his ambition to work in CID in the Police.
Talented artist, Ava Yarwood got grades BBC and will be going to Brighton University to read Digital Media Design.
Ella Saw has already decided on her career path and after an extremely competitive selection process she secured a coveted media and marketing apprenticeship at Mediacom. She started work in July and is loving her job. Nevertheless, she was delighted to find that she had achieved B grades in her three A Levels of Business, English and Psychology. Ella said “I find my job engaging and stimulating. I would advise anyone who is clear about their chosen career to consider an apprenticeship and it allows you to train on the job and means you don’t have a huge student debt.”
Headmaster Mark Dixon said “I am proud that our Sixth Form has enabled students to achieve their aspirations. The Sixth Form team support students throughout their studies and the process of applying to university or applying for apprenticeships. We aim to equip students with not only the academic skills, but also the personal characteristics they will need to pursue a career that is right for them.”
