Here’s the final instalment that celebrates the success of our A Level students this year. Both Hannah Loy and Leanne Tough will be following interests that they have developed at Brooke Weston. Hannah has spent many hours coaching sports teams and helping out at volleyball matches, while Leanne’s passion for the outdoors has led her to choose an ecology degree course.
Hannah will be going to the University of Bournemouth to study a four-year degree in sports development and coaching after gaining qualifications in Spanish, health and social care and IT. She said: ‘I had been offered an unconditional place but I am most pleased about my Spanish result as I got a B in that. Hopefully the degree course will lead to career in sport or volleyball.’ She is pictured with Olivia Balchin who will be studying psychology at Sheffield Hallam.
Leanne Tough, who got AAB grades in biology, geography and chemistry, is set to study ecology at Lancaster. Her acceptance onto the four-year Master’s degree course comes just over a year after she addressed delegates at the EU’s Green Week in Brussels last year. She said: ' I have always been interested in things to do with the environment, and the outside. It was the part of biology I liked the best.’
Special mention must also be made of Conor Judge and Ben Mole who achieved this cohort's highest point scores in the BTEC examinations. Conor got three Distinction *s which equates to 420 UCAS points while Ben was celebrating his Distinction * and two Distinctions which netted him 380 UCAS points. Both students did their qualifications in ebusiness and IT technology. Conor has a place at Nottingham Trent to study information systems.
Once again, well done to all of our students who worked so hard for their results. Good luck for the future.
