Students at the Richard Rose Sixth Form have been celebrating today after receiving their university and apprenticeship offers – including at some of the UK’s most prestigious institutions.
This morning saw Sixth Former Rebecca Jackson get confirmation of their place at the University of Oxford to read History, after receiving the grades she needed.
Alongside her were Ella Dalgleish, Matthew Dwyer, Julia Maciazek and Toby Matthews, who received their places at the University of Durham to study Biological Sciences, Finance, Psychology and Physics respectively– just a few examples of Richard Rose students heading off to a top Russell Group university this year.
In addition, Richard Rose Sixth Formers secured a range of very competitive apprenticeship, job and further training offers, as students received their end of school grades. This year, A Levels were awarded following Teacher Assessed Grades (TAGs) due to the cancellation of external examinations.
Dan Markham, Principal at the Richard Rose Sixth Form, which is based at Richard Rose Central Academy, said of the day’s successes:
“We are very proud of our Year 13 students celebrating some excellent achievements today. The university, training and career offers they have received are the culmination of seven years’ hard work and it is brilliant to see them so happy to be starting the next chapter in their lives.
“It is particularly pleasing to see students securing such strong destinations – from the University of Oxford in the South to the University of Durham in the North and so many other competitive job, apprenticeship and training programmes in between. On behalf of our school community, I want to congratulate them and wish them exciting and successful futures.
“I would also like to thank our parents and staff for their support over the years – this has been invaluable and ensured today could be the success it was.”
