Congratulations to Career 6 students as they receive their A Level results today.
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 the students have achieved some fantastic results, with an increasing number of students moving onto university courses in the health and care professions. Most gained a place at their first-choice university, and there were some outstanding individual performances.
Lauren Charlton (pictured) 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.
She said: “I had heard a lot of good things about Career 6 whilst I was at The Academy, and I liked the fact there were set pathways which lead you to a career.
“I’m really happy with my grades; I wasn’t expecting to do so well. The teaching and support has been really good, if you need revision classes or any extra support it’s always available and I’ve really enjoyed the small community feel.”
Lauren will be joined at Sheffield Hallam by Nichola Crosskill, another former student from The Academy who will be studying Criminology after achieving A levels on the Crime and Society pathway.
There has also been a good progression of students into higher education from our science and medical pathways. 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.”
