A massive 98 per cent of A-level students at The Stourport High School and Vlth Form College have achieved the grades needed to secure places at the universities of their choice.
High flyers include Will Powell (A*A*A*A*) who will be reading mathematics, Morgan Jones (A*A*A) who will be reading physics with astrophysics and Paige Mansfield (AAA) who will be reading bio-chemistry, all at the University of Warwick.
Will Moule (AABB) will be off to the University of Bath to read Politics and International Relations including a placement year and Chloe Lees (D*D*B) will be going into mental health nursing at Worcester University.
Jane Millington, assistant principal and head of Vlth form, said: “We are very proud that our students will be able to pursue their talents and interests at university level in subjects as diverse as computer science, geography, nursing, physics and journalism.
“With other students securing apprenticeships in areas including education, trades, and the forces, these opportunities are the result of our outstanding teaching, pastoral care and career guidance.
“Our dedicated and hard-working students have also received great support from their parents, whom we would also like to thank.”
The school’s second cohort of the DiSE rugby programme, run in conjunction with Worcester Warriors, sees Finn Thomas, Cheik Kone and Tobi Wilson receiving professional contracts with the club, described by principal Sara Peace as: “A testament to all of their hard work and dedication during a very difficult time.”
She added: “We continue to see our students being successful in achieving their first or second choice university place, with this year being no different. More than 98 per cent of our students have achieved their chosen university place, a fantastic result.
“We congratulate all our students on their success. They should be very proud of their achievements during what has been a very much disrupted time in VIth form due to the pandemic.
“They have worked diligently and consistently and we look forward to hearing about their progress as they start their lives as confident, independent adults.”
