Many of our Year 13 students have opted to continue with language or creative studies at university. Here is what a few of them are planning next:

Andre Cowen got a C in English and English Literature and a Distinction in IT. He said: “I am going to de Montfort University to do English Literature and creative writing. I just enjoyed English so I thought I would carry it on for another few years and see where that takes me.’

Tierney Chalmers is celebrating A grades in business and psychology and a B in maths. She said: ‘I am going to Exeter to study animal behaviour as I want to work with animals in some way.’ Tierney has already completed work experience at Woburn safari park caring for a variety of animals including bears and elephants.

Sophie Ellis got Distinction* grades in travel and tourism, BTEC performing arts and ICT and she is now going to study urban dance at the University of East London. She said: ‘It is a three year course with a year-long placement which could be anywhere from the States to across Europe. To secure my place I had to do two auditions, submit a written piece and have a group session solo. I am not a big fan of ballet and I just want to try something new and learn different styles. I have been dancing since I was three. I used to be part of the Corby Young Dancers and Katrina’s and now I am with a company in Kettering. I would like a career in performing arts eventually.’

Harriet Woodward is celebrating A grades in maths, German and English and she will study German and Russian at Leeds. She said: ‘I don’t know what I want to do at the end but hopefully it will lead to something because it can encompass a broad range of career avenues. These grades are all down to hard work and lots of it but I was still surprised when I saw it was all As!’
