Year 13 students celebrated securing outstanding destinations on A Level Results Day
Local Sixth Form students are celebrating once again following yet another year of excellent A Level and Level 3 BTEC results at John Cleveland Sixth Form Centre; soon to become The Hinckley Sixth Form from September 2022.
Year 13 students have once again secured outstanding destinations, including a high proportion securing offers to study at prestigious Russell Group Universities. Students will now go on to study a wide variety of degree courses across the country including Medicine, Bioengineering, and Law, with many students also securing places on competitive apprenticeships with leading employers such as JCB and Lloyds of London.
One JC6 student now preparing for university life is Abi, after celebrating an impressive 3 A*s in Business, Psychology and Spanish. Abi is now looking forward to studying Psychology and Spanish at her first-choice university, The University of Lancaster, after a gap year. Abi shared how support from staff and mock exams helped her to feel calm during the exam period and called results day, ‘bitter-sweet’, as she is sad to leave the sixth form, but excited for the next challenge.
After achieving 2 A*s in Maths and the Extended Project Qualification and 2 As in Further Maths and Chemistry, Troy is excited to have secured a place to study Finance at The University of Bristol. Having also studied for his GCSE’s at Hinckley Academy, soon to be The Hinckley School, Troy has now completed a seven-year journey at the school and said, “I am so glad that I did all seven years here, it was a smooth transition all the way. I was really comfortable with my teachers who were always happy to help.” Troy now aspires to have a career in Investment Banking or Finance Consultancy.
Just one of the JC6 students following an apprenticeship route is student Charlotte, who after securing 3 Bs in Psychology, Maths and Psychics is about to begin a Construction Management Apprenticeship with Redrow Homes. “It is a three-year course where you pick a specific area of focus in your final year- I am really looking forward to it,” Charlotte said, “I am over the moon with my results and sixth form have helped to encourage me out of my comfort zone with lots of advice and support.”
Hannah also shared how happy she was with her grades on results day, ‘especially Maths’, and is now off to The London School of Economics and Political Science to study History and Politics. Hannah achieved an A* in Sociology and As in both History and Maths to secure her place and is now considering a career as a university lecturer after her degree. Hannah shared, “I found the transition to exams quite smooth with all the support we were given. Teachers were always on hand and you could email them for extra help.”
Tilly and Millie both celebrated an impressive set of results by both achieving 1 A* and 2 As Tilly, who was joined to celebrate by her sister and her mum, shared how happy she was with her success. Now moving onto study Biology at her 1st choice university, Manchester University, Tilly said, “I am so glad I chose to study here, it was so easy to make friends and there are great teachers.” While friend Millie shared how happy she was with her results and how staff supported her success during challenging times, “Lockdown made me work twice as hard and small class sizes mean we all have great close working relationships with staff and feel like a community.”
Also moving onto study Biology is fellow Year 13 student Fynn, who secured the impressive results required to accept an offer from his 1st choice university, The University of Warwick. Fynn shared how he really enjoyed the Biology course at JC6 and thanked staff for helping him settle in.
Headteacher Lisa Hickman said, “We feel incredibly proud of the achievements of the Class of 2022, they are the final Year 13 students to celebrate A Level success under the name JC6, as we now look forward to becoming The Hinckley Sixth Form later this year. This year group has faced many post Covid challenges, yet have approached their studies with tenacity and determination. We are excited to see so many students gain their first-choice places and go on to study a wide variety of subjects. We thank them for their contribution to college life and wish them all the best for the future.”
