2017 - Outstanding A level results
Posted: August 17, 2017
Freman College’s 120 Upper Sixth students and their teachers are celebrating another set of outstanding results this summer with some of the college’s highest A level grades ever. An exceptional proportion of the year group have achieved top grades.
The college is also celebrating more students than ever winning places at prestigious Russell Group universities across a wide range of disciplines. In addition, a greater proportion of students than previously are moving on to lucrative, high level apprenticeships.
Headteacher, Helen Loughran said, ‘I am really delighted that the tough new A Levels haven’t thrown our students at all this year. They were a year group who achieved exceptional GCSE results two years ago and they have gone on to make outstanding progress in their A Levels too. I am really proud of them, as are all their teachers. They are moving on to a fantastically diverse and impressive range of careers.’
But many high flyers are heading straight into the world of work. Tommy Stupple has won an apprenticeship with the Civil Service while Daniel Rhodes will be starting an analytical chemistry apprenticeship with Astra Zeneca. Abi Friend is joining GSK to undertake a high level ICT apprenticeship while Georgina Bush has secured a place on KPMG’s highly prized apprenticeship programme.
