Congratulations to Career 6 students as they receive their A Level results.
Head Paul Lee said he was “exceptionally proud” of the whole cohort, who have faced unprecedented circumstances as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
Despite this, there has been an increase in students moving into the health and care professions, with many gaining a place at their first-choice university, as well as some outstanding individual performances.
Lauren Charlton received three A grades, as well as an A in her extended project qualification. A former student at The Academy Grimsby, she will be studying Criminology and Psychology at Sheffield Hallam.
Nichola Crosskill, who also previously studied at The Academy Grimsby, will be studying Criminology at Sheffield Hallam after gaining a B and two C grades and a B in her extended project qualification.
There has also been a good progression of students into higher education. These include Erika Gaunt, who will be studying Mental Health Nursing at Oxford Brookes, Olivia Carroll, who is going to the University of Salford to study Radiography, and Ria Stansfield, who will be studying Biomedicine at the University of Hull.
Paul Lee, Head of Career 6, commented: “We are delighted with the numbers of students progressing on to criminology and psychology courses. We’ve also seen an increase in students moving into the health and care professions to study courses such as midwifery and mental health nursing.
“Our pathways are designed to reflect the demand in both industry and society, so we ensure we are equipping the next generation with the skills they need for their chosen career. This includes our new Forensic and Criminal Investigation pathway, starting this September.
“We are exceptionally proud of all our students during these unprecedented circumstances and will continue to offer our wholehearted support as they progress onto their next steps.”
