Sixth Formers who gained their A Levels last week are now looking forward to a variety of career paths; with farming, teaching and motorsport being just a few of the options open to them.
Will be the only girl on her year-long motorsport race technician course at Silverstone. She got A Levels in Physics, Maths, Biology and Psychology and has already been measured up for the overalls. She starts the training in September and said: 'The College is on Silverstone race course and it's a demi-apprenticeship so you do half the course at the college and half as a work placement. It's something I've always been interested in and it's my dream to work for Ferrari one day!'
Achieved A Levels in Maths, Chemistry and Biology just 18 months after breaking his neck in a rugby accident. He was in a neck brace for six months and so had to do a lot of catching up in order to gain his great results. He is now going to be studying farming at Harper Adams University in Shropshire on a four-year course. He said: ' I was in the brace from November to April and so I didn't do any modular exams for AS, so I had to catch up but I was hoping to get these results.'
Chloe Barnes celebrates with her friends.
Gained A Levels in eBusiness, DT and Geography and got into his first choice of university, Oxford Brookes, to do business management. His four-year course will include a year out working in a company. He said: 'The way the business course is set out you get to pick and choose what you want to do.'
Wants to go into teaching, after being awarded two A Levels and two distinctions. She is going to Brighton for a four-year primary teacher training course. She said: 'I did some work experience for my health and social care and really enjoyed working with children.'
Alysha Hooda, Rebecca Dyche and Rebecca Clarke with their results.
Is going to Reading to study English language and also hopes to be a teacher, but in the secondary sector.
She said: 'My advice to next year's Year 13s is don't stress out as much as I did. Work from AS all the way through, don't leave it until the last minute!'
Is also planning to be a primary school teacher, but she is first completing a psychology degree at Keele after gaining Maths, Health and Social Care and English Literature A Levels.
Was awarded Chemistry, German and Biology A Levels and is off to Kings College London to do a four-year masters degree in pharmacy.
Is going through the RAF Selection process in September after gaining three A Levels. He has been at 1101 Squadron in Kettering for nearly five years and would ideally like a career as a weapons system operator on Chinook helicopters.
Is set to do two years of missionary work with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He will have a two-year placement teaching about the Mormon religion after attending a Missionary Training Centre. He said: 'When you are a guy of 19 you're supposed to do two years in mission. I don't know where I'm going yet, I could go anywhere in the world. Afterwards I can see myself doing something in business.'
