Echoing the earlier message from Mr Jones, I would like to reiterate how proud we are of every year 13 student and what they have achieved over an incredibly difficult two years. Whilst academic outcomes are crucial and underpin this, the most important role of the Sixth Form is to secure students the best possible post 18 destination, which is of course unique to each individual student. Following the strong set of level 3 results we are delighted to share and celebrate a snapshot of some of the outstanding destinations our current year 13 students will be progressing to as they formally conclude their time with us at Heanor Gate Spencer Academy Sixth Form. Over 90% of students who applied to university were placed at their first choice institution and all applicants have received formal offers on results day. Within this we saw students progress to Oxbridge and a broad range of prestigious universities across the country for a number of incredibly competitive courses. As a Sixth Form we are immensely proud of all of our students, and the below does not do justice to the breadth of destinations or personal successes, however it highlights a selection of notable success stories:
- University of Oxford – Law
- University of Nottingham – Mathematical Physics
- University of Birmingham – English and Creative Writing
- Durham University – English Literature
- Nottingham Trent University – Nursing
- University of Derby – Criminology
- University of Nottingham – Computer Science with a Year in Industry
- University of Oxford – Fine Art
- University of Leeds – Midwifery
- University of Warwick – Liberal Arts
Alongside our exceptional university successes we have also seen an increase in the number of students progressing to highly competitive apprenticeships at higher and degree level. These include industry leading employers such as Rolls Royce, Boots, Balfour Beatty and Siemens.
Congratulations once again to all of our students. We are incredibly proud of you all for what you have achieved over the last two years of study and wish you all the best in your next journey.
Mr R Graham
Head of Sixth Form
