About United Learning
Kelsey Mills, Richard Rose Sixth Form College
After achieving 3 A*s, 4 As and 2 Bs at GCSE at Richard Rose Central Academy, Kelsey Mills
decided to continue her education at Richard Rose Sixth Form College. She achieved 3 As and
a B at AS Level and is now applying to university to study Psychology.
Here, Kelsey explains how the Richard Rose Sixth Form has helped her make important decisions
about her future:
“I have always felt incredibly supported by my teachers at Richard Rose. Whether it is in revision
classes after school or in the holidays or one-to-one catch-up classes, I know that my teachers
are always on hand to help me achieve the grades I need. Since the academies joined United
Learning, there has been a big difference in the quality of teaching standards and there is so
much more support available.
“My teachers have been equally supportive in helping me make important decisions about my
future. I have always had an interest in psychology but through careers fairs and university talks
organised by the academy, I have been able to identify the most suitable university courses for
me. My teachers have given me the confidence to apply for university which, along with my twin
sister who is also at the Richard Rose Sixth Form, would make me the first in my family to go on
to higher education. The academy is also helping me set up work experience with people who
work in psychology so that my university application can be as good as it can be.”
