Congratulations to all of our students who are celebrating this year’s excellent A Level results. Here’s what a few of them are planning in the future:

Vinh Ta gained A*s in chemistry, maths and physics and an A in further maths. He will be studying a four-year degree course on theoretical physics at Imperial College London. He said: ‘It is about studying how everything works at the most basic level. I find science fun and am curious about the way things work. I studied a lot, probably about 20 hours a week on top of school work.’

Dan Tough achieved A*s in chemistry and maths and As in Biology and Physics. He has secured a place at Warwick to study mechanical engineering. He said: ‘I had to work quite hard to get these results and I knew that I had the place before I came in today, but to get these grades was the icing on the cake. I feel great. I want to either go into automotive or aerospace engineering.’

Ben Perkins and Christopher Weaver are both going to Warwick to study maths. Both achieved identical results of an A* in maths and As in physics, further maths and chemistry. Ben said: ‘Warwick is a good university and I looked around its campus and it is what I wanted. It is just a pure maths course and it will probably lead me into the finance industry or maybe teaching. My advice to other students would be to work hard from the start of Year 12.’

Christopher said: ‘We are doing the same four year course but I don’t know what I want to do afterwards, I’ll keep my options open.’
