Students from National Church of England Academy, The Holgate Academy and Queen Elizabeth’s Academy, who all undertake their studies at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre, were celebrating this morning as they received their A Level results.

There were scenes of great excitement and emotion across all three academies as students found out the grades that they have worked very hard towards, which will lead them on to opportunities in higher education, employment and on apprenticeships.

Amongst the fantastic individual success stories were Juliet Smith from National, achieving a hugely impressive set of results with A*, A*, A (biology, chemistry, history) and will be going to study biology at the University of Sheffield.

Juliet said of her achievement, “I am so pleased with my results and knowing that all my hard work has paid off – it really wasn’t what I was expecting. I’m excited to go on to study biology now as this is something I’m very passionate about. Thanks to all of my teachers for their help in supporting me to take this next step!”

Klinta Eisaka, from Queen Elizabeth’s Academy, achieved superb results with A* and C in her A Levels (extended project qualification, finance) and three Distinction* grades (applied law, physics). Her amazing achievements mean that she is going on to study law at the City of London University – even more impressive considering that she only moved to England when she was 10 without speaking the language, so her progress and development has been incredible.

At Holgate, Megan Kirk who secured a Distinction* in health and social care, B in biology and B in psychology and will be off to Sheffield Hallam University to study psychology. Megan said: “I’m so delighted with my results and can’t wait to take up my place at Sheffield Hallam. All the hard work certainly paid off!”

There have been many other stories of great progress and achievement, with a great pass rate from Hucknall Sixth Form Centre students.

Every staff member who works at HSFC would like to extend their hugest congratulations to all of our students – we’re delighted that your hard work and dedication to your studies has really paid off. Well done, and all the very best for your future!
