Students at United Sixth Form (USF), part of Avonbourne Boys’ and Girls’ Academies, are celebrating today after securing places at their first-choice universities.
This year, A Levels were awarded following Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) due to the cancellation of external examinations. At United Sixth Form, students delivered coursework, sat in-class assessments, and completed internal end of course exams as part of this assessment process.

- Romena Sukyte who is taking up a place at University College London to study Biomedical Sciences;
- Amelia Chodala who is taking up a place at the University of Bristol to study History;
- Mya Sherrard who is taking up a place at the University of Bristol to study Sociology;
- Tristan Donchev who is taking up a place at the University of Liverpool to study Criminology;
- Isabelle Bancroft who is taking up a place at Cardiff University to study Criminology and Sociology;
- Mina Hennessy who is taking up a place at the University of Southampton to study Psychology;
- Muniskhon Usmonkhonova who is taking up a place at the University of Southampton to study Education and Psychology.
The Sixth Form has also seen a number of students recognised for their prowess in music and performing arts, including Katie Garnett-Brown who is taking up a place at Trinity Laban School of Dance to study Dance and Choreography and Chloe Slater who is joining the BIMM Institute to study Songwriting.
Congratulating the students on their success, Stuart Ingram, Executive Principal at Avonbourne Girls’ and Avonbourne Boys’ Academies said:
“In what has been an unprecedented past 18 months, I am delighted to see so many of our Sixth Formers achieving the qualifications they need to take up places at their first-choice universities. We are all incredibly proud of the determination and resilience they have shown to their studies in the face of ongoing obstacles. They are thoroughly deserving of their success.
“I also want to recognise the tireless efforts of the team at United Sixth Form, who have gone above and beyond to ensure all students have the support and guidance they need to reach their goals. I am very much looking forward to seeing our Sixth Formers take the next steps in their education and lead what I’m sure will be very bright futures.”
