Post 16 Exam Success
Staff and students at Macmillan Academy have a fantastic morning celebrating the achievements
of this years' Year 13 cohort.
The year group have had their entire Post 16 experience disrupted and they have dealt admirably with all
of the challenges and uncertainties that they have faced. All staff at the academy speak warmly about this
cohort of students. They have been superb role models to all of the younger students and they will be
missed very much.
Mrs Scott (Head of Post 16) said the following about the year group, "it is so impressive to see the results this year group have achieved given the difficulties they have all faced over the past 18 months. Undertaking both face to face and online learning, they have conducted themselves in a such a mature fashion and happily, their hard work, perseverance and commitment in these unprecedented times has paid off. A huge congratulations to them all."
As always, students are going on to a variety of interesting destinations. Some students are choosing to stay close to home whilst others are opting to move away from the area. Staying close to home are Mia Honeyman who is studying paramedic science at Teesside University and Amani Hussain will study pharmacy at Sunderland University. Moving further afield, Brian Ezinwoke is going to Manchester to study computer science and he will be joined by Raheel Quyoom who will study criminology and law. Staying on the theme of law, Charlotte and Emily Williams will both be moving to Leeds to study law and Rhiannon Currie will study acting at Bath Spa.
Further away still, Ben Young will be studying political sciences at LSE and Adam Hussain will be studying medicine at Southampton. Natasha Tsiquuaye will study food and nutrition at Reading University. Alongside, students going to study at university, several students have gained excellent apprenticeships. This is especially impressive in the current circumstances. For example, Megan Todd has secured an apprenticeship with Tees Active as a Health and Fitness Adviser.
Mrs Coning (Head of School) stated the following, "we could not be prouder of our Year 13 students. They have handled themselves superbly over the past 2 years and are an absolute credit to themselves and to their parents. At the academy we are all delighted with what the year group have achieved and we know that they will go on to do amazing things. We hope that they will keep in touch to let us know how they are doing."
