Students at The Regis School’s sixth form have secured some strong university places, after receiving their A Level grades today.

- Aisha Begum, who will be studying Law at the University of Portsmouth;
- Bailey Laatz, who will be studying Medicine at the University of East Anglia;
- John Traynor, who will be going to the University of Bath to study Chemistry for Drug Discovery with an Industry Placement;
- Niamh Kirk, who will be going to Durham University to study Sport and Exercise Science;
- Toby Turner, who is also off to the University of Bath for a degree in Integrated Mechanical and Electrical Engineering.
David Oakes, principal at The Regis School, said: “Over the past two years, our Sixth Formers have proven their resilience, positivity and dedication to their studies in the midst of what have been difficult times for us all.
“Our focus as always has been supporting our students to secure the right university places for them and ensuring they are prepared to move on successfully to the next stages of their lives.
“Today in particular, we are very pleased for those students taking up their offers of choice, including on some very challenging and competitive courses. We wish all our students all the best as they move forward.”
Connie James, assistant principal and head of sixth form at The Regis School, added: “Our Year 13s have shown independence and resilience well beyond their years in such unprecedented times. Throughout their time in our Sixth Form they have demonstrated exceptional study skills; qualities which will undoubtedly support them in their continued success at university or in an apprenticeship. We wish them all the very best for their futures and look forward to hearing about their future accomplishments.”
