A website which promotes alternative options available to students who have finifhed their A Levels says students should 'bide their time and really think about their options'.
It’s brilliant that so many students have this year got the results they were hoping for and have been granted places at university. However, we can’t ignore the fact that many students currently studying at university would rather be doing an apprenticeship or something similar – studies have shown this.
We strongly advise students receiving their A-Level results this year to bide their time and really think about their options...Anyone that didn’t get the grades they wanted today needn’t panic, because work-based learning and other vocational training opportunities are available to them."

This is yet again a formidable set of results. What is particularly significant is the high achievement of all our pupils in the traditional, demanding, hard, ‘facilitating’ subjects such as Maths, Further Maths and Physics that universities and the Government now favour.
This is an outstanding year group and many of our pupils have enjoyed huge extra-curricular successes alongside their academic achievements this year. We are also very proud of our sailing squad which has now held the National title for the third year running.
