On Thursday 18th August we had the opportunity to celebrate as our Sixth Form students collected their Level 3 exam results. With this being the first live set of exams for 3 years and the uncertainty that has played it’s part following the pandemic it has been a challenge for all of our students to say the least.
As we have said before at Etone, we were amazed at how well our students handled themselves, showing a maturity and dedication that will see them achieve in their future careers. Given the weight of the disruption to their education for the past 3 years we cannot be prouder of them.
However, with the wait over it was time for our students to find out their results and see all of that hard work and effort pay off. Firstly, we are thrilled to be able to share in the amazing successes our pupils have had. Across the entire cohort our pupils have made fantastic progress with all pupils achieving in line with expectations and many exceeding their targets.
This includes our Year 12 pupils who we would like to congratulate who have completed examinations and earned AS/ Level 3 Certificates this year. We are excited to continue your journey as you complete your courses in Year 13.
As for our Year 13’s we have enjoyed, once again, some fantastic achievements. All of our pupils are leaving Etone to go on to secure and promising next steps be that at leading universities, prestigious apprenticeship programs or competitive employment. We just wanted to share the stories of a few of our students below:
Melih M “I have been at Etone College since Year 7 and I am feel really mixed about today, I am really proud of my results and can’t wait to go to university, but it is sad to think this is really goodbye. Over my years at Etone I am proud of my achievements and am grateful to the school for all of the hard work the teachers put in.” Melih achieved 2 A*’s and 2 A’s in Biology, Maths, Chemistry and Further Maths respectively. He goes off to study Mathematics at the University of Birmingham.
Lisa M “I came to Etone in Year 12 and immediately I settled right in. Despite starting late the college was warm and welcoming and I was able to really push myself with amazing support from teachers and fellow students.” Lisa achieved 3 A*’s in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology respectively. She goes off to study Medicine also at the University of Birmingham
Jack King “I was really pleased to be part of the first cohort of the Football Academy. It has been a really great experience to get to experience the training, support and coaching of football whilst also studying for my course. I am grateful to the sports department and coaches for the support and advice they have given me.” Samuel achieved Distinction*, Distinction *, Distinction in his Sport Extended Diploma and goes off to study Sport Business and Management at the University Campus of Football in Manchester.
Additional highlights include:
- Matt – Achieving B, B, Distinction who leaves us to study Geography at Loughborough University.
- Hajin – Who joined us from Korea and has achieved A,A,D in Biology, Chemistry and Physics along with a Grade 8 in Piano.
- Ryan – Achieving A*, B, Distinction * leaving us to study Sociology at Warwick University.
- Ruby – Achieving B, B, Distinction*, Distinction* joining Loughborough University to study Sport Sciences.
- Jess – Achieving A, B, B who leaves us to join the University or Lancaster to study Forensic Psychology.
Finally, although we are proud of all our students, we do want to share the success we have had with the first cohort of our Football Academy. Their program consists of studying a course equivalent to 3 A Levels equivalents along with taking part in training and attending match fixtures. They have excelled themselves with their results and have also topped their league. We are especially exited for our 5 students (Jack, Omar, Ewan, Callum, Leonard) who are all joining the University Campus of Football Business in Manchester where they will be studying on the Etihad Campus.
Of course, it is not always happy reactions to the results we open. Whilst we are extremely proud of these results, we continue to work with our pupils to ensure that they are supported onto the next step of their path.
To all of our pupils we would like to say if you require future support from us, please contact us. Remember you are now Etone Alumni and that is a club you have joined for life. We look forward to seeing what amazing endeavours you get up to in the future but for now enjoy the last few weeks of summer.
All that is left to say is a massive well done and thank you.
