Congratulating students on their results, Connie James, Assistant Principal and Head of Sixth Form at The Regis School said:
“Our students have been an absolute pleasure to work with throughout their time with us; they are a very special year group to me! I am so, so proud of all they have achieved; their hard work and dedication has been well rewarded. They will be sorely missed by me, the Sixth Form team and their teachers, but we all know they will go on to do brilliant things at their chosen Universities and Apprenticeship placements. I would like to take this opportunity to wish them all the very best and we look forward to hearing all about their next steps.”
Mike Garlick, Principal of The Regis School, added:
“Our Sixth Form students have worked extremely hard over the last two years to achieve their results this year. With new linear and BTEC courses being more complex than in the past, I am proud of our students and their teachers in being able to make the progress we have when compared to last year. We have a record number of students applying for and gaining places at universities around the country and others gaining high level apprenticeships.
“Our Sixth form offers an exciting and successful blend of academic and applied courses and each year the numbers joining it increases.
“I wish all students the very best for their futures!”
Kasjan Paszkowski: “I feel really happy and surprised and need a day to let this all sink in! I want to say a huge thanks for the immense support and time that my teachers have given me to support my studies. My advice to next year’s students is to start right now, revise from the very start of the year as this will build confidence and ensure you are fully prepared”
Morgan Bryant: “I feel over the moon! My results were a surprise in some areas and I am now really looking forward to studying Pharmacology next year. I would like to thank Mr Robbins for supporting the whole class and always pushing me to do better. I am really proud to have been part of The Regis School!”
Nafsin Uddin: “I am ecstatic about my results! I am looking forward to my next studies at University in my field of interest. I would like to thank Mrs Potter and Mrs Abblett for their help and support over the last two years. I am really sad to leave The Regis School as it has really helped me to get my grades – I have had a great time!”
Ben Hauxwell: “I feel over the moon with my results and am a bit speechless! I never settled for a target grade, always wanting to push further and my grades show this! Every teacher who taught me has helped me in a specific way, especially Mrs Lovelock in PE and Mr Purgavie as my Tutor. My advice to Year 13 students next year is to be really organised and revise early in small chunks. I have loved every minute of The Regis School and especially the last two years that have been the best years of my life!”
