After picking up their results, many Bournemouth & Poole College students are set to go onto university. Some will go on to higher education or start an apprenticeship at the college, or go on to gain employment in their chosen career path.

Student, Harry Seymour said, “I secured the grades in my psychology, sociology and communication and culture A levels to get into Durham University. I’m off to study philosophy and psychology, which will hopefully help me land my dream job as a psychologist in the army.”

Robyn Staton got three three Bs in politics, psychology and English language and literature and said, “I got the grades I need to get into Southampton University to study politics. I can’t wait to start. I’m hoping to go into political journalism or go on to work in the civil service.”

Director of learning for sixth form at Bournemouth & Poole College, Tracey Griffin, said, “We are extremely proud of all of our students and their hard work is evident by achieving another exceptional overall pass rate. This is particularly impressive as we saw the full implementation of the Government’s new linear A levels this summer and we expect our pass rate to be above the national average as it has been in previous years. We would like congratulate all of those students who now have a fantastic start to the next step in their career.”

Bournemouth & Poole College is hosting a Come to College event for students who will pick up their GCSE exam results this summer. It takes place on Thursday, 23 August from 10am to 4pm and 24 August from 10am to 1pm at the North Road in Poole and the Lansdowne in Bournemouth sites. Young people will need to visit the website to find out which site hosts their chosen subject.
