In a hugely challenging year for the Y13 cohort, Giggleswick is immensely proud of what our students have achieved in securing a range of places at top universities, including Oxford, York, Bath and Cardiff. From Medicine, Law, Languages, Music, Drama as well as History and Geography the courses reflect the values of the school in nurturing talent of all kinds.
Headmaster, Mr Mark Turnbull, said: “We are really pleased for these students and proud of how they have responded over the past six months with the tenacity and adaptability they have shown. They have been rewarded and proved once more that you are not defined by your grades, but by the person you become.”
Our Heads of School celebrated their success as Joshua Kirkhope-Arkley secured a place at Pembroke College, Oxford University to read French and Arabic, and Amy Chadwick is progressing to Bath University to study International Management.
Other successes include Marisa Allen who achieved A*A*A*A in Maths, Physics, Spanish and Further Maths, and will now be heading to Edinburgh University to study Physics, and local pupil Chris Thornton who has secured a place at Bristol University to study Medicine.
BTEC options continue to deliver excellent results for our students and this year 100% of our pupils achieved the D*D or D*D* (A*/A or A*/A*equivalent) grade. They will be heading to top universities including York and Newcastle.
Mrs Coward, Head of Sixth Form said: “I am really impressed with how the students have dealt with the application process and any challenges they have faced. Each student has an exciting future ahead and we wish them every success as they embark on the next phase of their training or educational journey.”
