Once again, The Mosslands School is delighted to report that results have continued to improve at Sixth Form. All students who applied for university have been successful in securing a place.
Highest performing students include Lance Jones who achieved 2 A*s, A and a B grade and has accepted a place at Bath University to read Mathematics. In addition, Jake Priestman who gained A*, D*, B and C and is attending the University of Leeds to read Mathematics. Other students include Thomas Mercer accepting a place to study Physics, Benjamin Hughes choosing to attend the University of Liverpool to study Mathematics and Jose Recalde accepting a place at Manchester to read Electronic and Electrical Engineering. All students have worked extremely hard in their subject areas and STEM opportunities presented to them over the last two years have certainly assisted in developing their skills and passion for the various subject areas. Our role as a STEM Centre of Excellence has certainly improved the prospects of our students and has therefore assisted them on the pathway to success in these subject areas.
Students who did not chose to apply to university have been equally as successful in securing FE placements, apprenticeships or employment. Particular mention goes to Jay Henson who applied for a craft apprenticeship with Airbus and effectively passed the rigorous testing and interview process to begin his placement in September. He will work towards becoming a Skilled Aircraft Systems Fitter working on the installation and fitting of aircraft flying controls. In addition, a significant number of our talented artists have chosen to pursue their passion and have been snapped up by Wirral Metropolitan College. The Head of Art, Ms Robbins is so impressed by their talent that she has managed to secure an opportunity for their work to be displayed at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton in the next few months.
The schools’ successful Level 2 Engineering partnership with The Engineering College continues to thrive and as a result we will be working with them from September 2017 to offer a Level 3 qualification in Engineering also. In addition, there was a 100% pass rate at Level 2 and Level 3 with our external provider Evo Sports and their offer of Instructing Exercise and Fitness, Activity Leadership and BTEC Extended Diploma in Sport. Particular mention goes to Jack Jacques and Aaron Hunter who both achieved D*D*D*
Congratulations to all students and we wish you every success.
