Torquay Academy Sixth Form are celebrating a record set of results for this year’s cohort of students. Nichole Sanders, Assistant Principal, stated, “I am delighted for our students as they have worked so hard and shown such dedication to their academic studies. I feel very privileged to have worked alongside such a wonderful, committed and hard working group of students. I’m also immensely proud of the teachers who have given up so much of their free time to provide additional support for their students. These results really do cap off a wonderful year for the Sixth Form.”
The hundreds of hours spent supporting students in their university process has been worth it, with so many students obtaining places at a university of their choice. Even more impressive are how eight students held unconditional offers prior to the Summer break. This increased to a staggering 28 unconditional offers in recent days! A student having an excellent academic record is vital, but equally significant is the quality of the UCAS application.
Emma Hoskins, Head of 6th Form, said “There are so many successful stories that have arisen out of today, too many to mention, but special credit should be given to one of our students, Vernon Moore, who has secured a place at Oxford University to read Maths. This is a great achievement and testament that hard work really does pay off.”
George Full, Chelsea Peter and Tom Neale have all been offered places to study BA Degrees in Creative Music Technology and Popular Music Performance at Falmouth University. Impressively, Falmouth has retained its place as the UK’s Number One Arts University for the third year running in the Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017.
Furthermore, Dan Williams and Harvey Comer were both successful in securing places to study BA degrees in Professional Music Performance at their dream university, ACM; The Academy of Contemporary Music. ACM has a hugely impressive list of alumni, which include Ed Sheeren, Newton Faulkner, Lawson and Mumford and Sons, to name a few.
