“I am really relieved and happy with my results.”
Also celebrating was Jordan Woodhall, who said:
“I enjoyed my time at Avonbourne 6th Form and it has prepared me for the future. I am going to miss studying here.”
The celebrations come after the Avonbourne 6th Form formally joined national schools group United Learning earlier this month, along with the rest of the schools from the former Avonbourne Trust. The schools are now working closely with United Learning’s existing cluster of schools in Bournemouth and Poole, which includes the Glenmoor and Winton Academies.
Consolidating today’s A Level success, Avonbourne 6th Form will reopen in September as United Sixth Form, reflecting its new beginning as part of United Learning.
Avonbourne’s Director of Sixth Form, Kathryn Loughnan, said:
“The young men and women graduating from our 6th Form today can be rightly proud that their hard work and determination has paid off. During their time here they have made the most of their education and have not only enjoyed their academic studies but also grown through the wide range of enrichment opportunities available to them.
“I would like to congratulate each of them on their success and wish them all well as they begin university, college or their careers.
“We look forward to welcoming our new 6th Formers in September and have continued to recruit new additions over the summer. We still have a few places left and I know that today’s results will encourage more young men and women to join us.”
Richard Tutt, the new Executive Principal over the 6th Form, said:
“I would like to congratulate all the students receiving their A Level results and wish them every success as they move onto university, apprenticeships and employment. These are strong results which are an excellent starting point as the college joins United Learning and begins the new academic year as United Sixth Form. We have a very positive future ahead of us across the Avonbourne schools and we are all looking forward to building on and developing their existing strengths to continue to provide excellent opportunities for students and staff.”
