Outstanding A Level Results at Gosfield School reflect Sixth Form Centre investment

Principal Guy Martyn, who joined in January of this year, was quick to acknowledge the School’s long term trend in A Level success stories. “It is clear how the personalised nature of our Sixth Form provision is ideally suited to ambitious students who want to grow as leaders in our community and work hard as part of a small, friendly group to gain their first choice place at University or their future career.”

At the same time, School Registrar, Patrick Bell, has announced the School’s investment in a new Sixth Form centre within the Georgian Manor set in the School’s 110-acre Estate. He adds “Our Sixth Form has consistently proved a personalised centre of excellence – and so we have relocated it to accommodate increasing interest from students within the Chelmsford, Colchester and South Cambridge region seeking the opportunity to work hard on their A Levels within a tranquil, beautiful and friendly setting.”

Two delighted students have been talking about their experience.

Pip Allen 
"I am so happy about my results and very surprised; I thought that it was going to be a push to get AAB which was what I needed to study Law and Sociology at Warwick so I worked really hard towards that but never dreamed that I would exceed those with A*A*A (in History, Sociology and Psychology)."

When asked about her time at Gosfield School, where Pip has been a student since she was 8 years old, she said: "that small classes have really helped me and all of the teachers genuinely care and want you to do well, it's not just about the grades with them."

Pip's Father, Peter Allen added "Gosfield School is a caring environment where people know you and take time to help and support you, this means that you can flourish academically as well have the time and space to find yourself."

Despite the fact that Pip's amazing results mean that she can be even more selective about her university place she has decided to stick with her original first university choice of Warwick and will be deferring her place for one year so that she can go travelling and do some more volunteering work. Pip advised that her plans were inspired by the expedition to Kenya that she went on with Gosfield School last year, where they volunteered at an orphanage. She is still in touch with people there and is hoping to do more volunteering work, perhaps this time around turtle conservation.

Alice Killby
Upon discovering that she had achieved A*AA in Economics, French and Spanish, Alice advised that she is really happy to have got a place at her first choice university. She explained that she wasn't expecting such high grades and said "I think I got these because of my teachers".

Alice received a number of University offers after fabulous AS exam results and will be going off to the University of East Anglia to read French and Spanish with Management Studies in September. She has been a student at Gosfield School since Year 8 and stated: "the support that I have received has helped me to achieve my full potential."
