Cadbury College’s class of 2019 are planning for the future after receiving their A Level results, with university cities across the country getting ready to welcome the Kings Norton students.
Students will now be packing cases, visiting halls of residence or preparing for the working world, as the pupils look to walk down more paths than ever before. Along with the popular Birmingham universities, the latest graduates will be heading off to all corners of the UK, including Manchester, Coventry and Cardiff.
With Cadbury College offering pupils the chance to undertake A Levels and BTECs simultaneously, students have amassed their UCAS points via routes that suit their skillsets the best, with music being paired with law and drama with applied science.
As well as university celebrations, the college’s music and performing arts pupils continued a seven year streak of 100% pass rate, with every student this year receiving a high grade. Similarly, record results were seen in art and design as 52% picked up envelopes with high grades inside, further strengthening Cadbury College’s reputation as a centre for creative excellence.
The route each student is now taking highlights the diversity of courses available at Cadbury College. Law and Applied Law have both had high acceptance rates, with others choosing nursing, business, theology, physiotherapy, architecture and much more.
The college has also prepared students who want to step straight into a profession. Nicholas Wood is one of just 10 young people across the UK who will be embarking on HSBC’s apprenticeship degree course, which he applied for following a college-led networking event. Along with a rigorous nationwide selection process, Nicholas needed 112 UCAS points, which he achieved with an A and two Cs.
Julia Stevens, principal at Cadbury College, said: “Our students have so many doors open to them after today’s results. We have students travelling the country, staying in Birmingham and going straight into work.
“We’re proud of what each student has achieved, and we know they all will go on to great things, whichever path they choose to go down.”
Tom Bunting, head of music at the college commented on another year of outstanding results: “It has been a morning to remember for all the music and performing arts students and faculty. We haven’t had a student fail in the seven years I have worked here, and to receive high grades for every student gives us all an immensely proud feeling.”
Cadbury College is looking forward to welcoming a brand new crop of talent this September, and enrolment for new students begins on Thursday 22nd August. Pupils can mix BTEC courses with A Levels to better achieve their goals and engage with subjects that excite them. For all the information on how to enrol, please visit www.cadcol.ac.uk
