Well done to all of our students who are celebrating their hard-earned A Level results. Here’s what a few of them are doing next:

Henry Griffiths is going to study a four year mathematics degree at the University of Durham after gaining five A Levels in total, with A*s in physics and maths, As in further maths and further maths additional and a B in chemistry. He said: ‘I did it through hard work mainly. Nearer to the exam time I was working for approximately 10 hours a day trying to get the best results possible. I have no idea what I want to do eventually but I have four years to think about it! My advice to future students would be to start working early in the year to give you the best chance possible, don’t leave it all to the last couple of months!’

Billy Snaith will study chemical engineering for the next five years at the University of Bath after gaining A*s in chemistry and maths and As in further maths and physics. He said: ‘I wanted to do something that combines all the subjects I do, so chemical engineering uses all of my skills and it doesn’t lead to just one job. There’s lots of things you can do so it keeps your options open in the future. Bath have a good reputation for engineering. I did put in a lot of effort and I was hoping to get a couple of A*s, that was my goal so I was chuffed to get these. I prepared for it by doing lots of past papers from years back as you learn what is likely to come up and what sort of answers are expected.’

Aston Chapman is celebrating after gaining A*s in business and psychology and A in geography. He is now going to study law at Manchester University and, unusually, didn’t check online to see whether he had got his place: ‘I thought it was a bit like opening Christmas presents, when you know what is in there, so I thought I would wait until I was at Brooke Weston to see how I did. I am very happy to have got these results and am looking forward to getting started as law is something I find interesting.’
