Sixth formers from The Latimer Arts College in Kettering have been celebrating A-level results success.
Latimer student Megan Brown achieved an A in Geography, A in Psychology and a B in English Language. She commented: “I’m very happy. This is what I needed to get into university and I’ll be going on to study Geography at Kings College London. After I’ve finished my first degree I’d like to gain a Masters and then eventually work in climatology. In Year 11 we studied five or six topics and climate change was the one I was most interested in.”
Shivam Naik gained an A grade in Maths, A in Biology, A in Chemistry and a B in Physics. He said: “I’m really pleased and would like to say a big thank you to all of the staff at The Latimer Arts College where I’ve been for the past seven years. I’m thrilled to be going to Imperial College London to study medicine, and after that I hope to become a doctor.”
Principal, Siobhan Hearne said: “We are extremely proud of our students and the success they have achieved this year at A2 and in their Level 3 vocational qualifications.
“There has been a significant increase in the number of students gaining A and B grades, while those studying vocational qualifications have received exceptionally high results, with the average grade being a Distinction*.
“Students with vocational qualifications have exceeded their expected grades, and we anticipate all of our students have secured their preferred places at university.
“This is the first time our Year 12 students have sat the newly reformed AS exams and, as with any change to the system, this can bring an element of uncertainty. We are therefore particularly pleased that our students have done well in their AS grades.
“We wish all of our students the very best with their futures and I would like to thank our staff for a great team effort.”
