Yet again Sixth Form students at South Wirral High School were celebrating some superb A Level and BTEC results, building on the successes of previous years for our Sixth Form.
The vast majority of students secured their first choice at university, with a significant number destined for “redbrick universities”, as a result of achieving the highest grades. These include Hannah Fairbairn who will study History and Archaeology at Newcastle University, Emma Sherlock who will study History at Liverpool University and Ellen Roberts who will study Psychology at York University, after taking an exciting gap year in Kenya with the International Citizenship Service. Several other students are waiting to hear from Liverpool University in the clearing process.
Some other notable successes were Jazmyn Campbell who achieved A, A, Distinction* and will study Primary Education at Chester University and Kirsty Mort, who has secured one of a very small number of places on the Child Nursing course at Edge Hill University.
Many, many other students are leaving for their first choice of university. Lots of them are embarking on courses which are the first steps to interesting careers, and reflect the strengths at South Wirral across curriculum areas. So students have places to study Chemical Engineering, Sports and Exercise Science, Forensic Science, Fashion Buying, Musical Theatre, Film and TV, Pharmacy, Psychology, History, English and Business Studies.
Some students have also secured prestigious apprenticeships – a good alternative to university – in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Construction Management.
Simon Goodwin, Headteacher, said:
“We are all proud of the students’ achievements and we wish them every success in the future. These results are the product of many months of hard work and dedication by the students and support from staff and parents”.
Everybody associated with Sixth Form @ South Wirral is proud of the achievements of all of our students as they now prepare for the next exciting chapter of their lives. Amongst the A*’s and A’s, in many cases, the real success stories are where students have exceeded all expectations through sustained hard work and excellent teaching. We would like to thank and congratulate everyone involved in enabling our students to achieve their potential.
