2015 has been another successful year at Cadbury College, with strong results across the board and an overall pass rate of 97%.
This academic year saw students from the Kings Norton Specialist Sixth Form College sit examinations across almost 50 subjects. 22 of these subjects achieved a 100% pass rate, which included Geography, where three students (Pearl Owen, Johnny Lomax and Katie Sargeant) achieved top A* grades and Katie has begun the academic year of 2015 by studying Geography at the University of Exeter.
Cara celebrates AAC in her A-Levels, whilst Kayleigh celebrates ABB. Kayleigh also achieved the Chris Gardner Award for Sociology last year, with her teacher commenting on her highly conscientious work ethic and dedication to the subject. Recognising these skills in herself, she is embarking upon a new adventure this October by studying Primary Education at the University of Hertfordshire.
Cadbury College is also proud to announce a selection of students who achieved all top grades of A*s in their A-Levels this summer. Isis Bradshaw joined the Birmingham-based college from King Edwards Camp Hill school, and has gone on to the University of Sussex to study Neuroscience after achieving A*s in Psychology, Biology and English Literature. Toby Lever achieved A*s in Art and Design, Graphics and Photography, which has seen him continue his dream path of studying a Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at UAL Camberwell (University of the Arts London). The Foundation Diploma in Art and Design will provide Toby with the chance to experience different art and design disciplines while helping him to build a portfolio for his application to an undergraduate course within the University of the Arts London or beyond. Shannon Jones also achieved all A*s in English Literature, Psychology and Religious Studies. She featured in the Birmingham Mail’s education supplement on Friday August 14th 2015, alongside best friend Zoe Osman. Both girls have gone off to study English Literature at the University of Liverpool and the University of Reading respectively.
Cadbury College is not only celebrating the destinations of students who have gone off to University, but also those who have begun to build their career and found employment in their desired sector. Emma Jones, who joined Cadbury College in 2013 from Selly Park Technology College, achieved an A grade in her Travel and Tourism A-Level, which has seen her attain a high-flying job at the Hilton Hotel, continuing to develop her passion for tourism around the world.
Cadbury College would like to extend their congratulations to all students who completed their A-Levels this summer, and we wish them all the best for their future endeavours.
Since the start of the new academic year, the college has been delighted to welcome second year students back alongside new first year students. We are looking forward to an exciting, challenging and rewarding year ahead, and wish all students luck on the journeys through Cadbury College and beyond.
