Year 13, the school's founding cohort, rise to challenge of Bolingbroke's first set of A Levels
Year 13 temporarily letting their hair down during the hard graft of A Levels
It’s crunch time for sixth-form students across the country as A-levels start in earnest this week. It’s a particularly special time for Bolingbroke Academy as this is the first year that our school will be putting students forward for A-Levels. Our founding cohort of pupils are now in their final year at school and have been working exceptionally hard for these important exams, supported by the unwavering guidance of dedicated staff.
Sixth formers getting their heads down and working hard for their exams
All students are striving towards achieving the grades they need to enable them to accept offers from a host of top universities and apprenticeship schemes, with students fielding offers from prestigious Russell Group universities including: Cambridge, Durham, London School of Economics, Warwick, St Andrews, Kings, Queen Mary’s Imperial, Exeter, Bristol, UCL, Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.
Some of the courses our students are going on to study this September include: Architecture, Biochemistry, Biomedical Science, Dentistry, Economics, English Literature, Geography, Mathematics, Medicine, Midwifery, Physics, Philosophy Politics, Psychology, Veterinary Science and much more.
Other students are in the process of applying for apprenticeship positions with the likes of the BBC, Sky and Bloomberg.
Bolingbroke provides a tailored UCAS application process as part of their sixth form experience, with each student receiving masterclasses and one to one feedback in personal statement writing and application. This includes small group practise for the medical UKCAT and BMAT.
The tailored Oxbridge, Medicine and Dentistry pathway has seen several of our students excel - many being invited for interview and securing offers at some of the best universities in the world.
Ms Orchin, director of sixth form, says she is "so proud" of the year 13 students' hard work and achivements to date
"We are so proud of everything our students have achieved so far and look forward to celebrating their achievements on results day in August," said director of sixth form Ms Orchin.
