Plenty of op­tions af­ter your GC­SEs

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

WITH GCSE re­sults re­leased last week, I want to re­as­sure any­one who didn’t get the re­sults they were hop­ing for or any­one who’s hav­ing sec­ond thoughts about their sixth form choices that all is not lost.

Firstly, don’t panic. Take time to think about your op­tions. Time and time again I’ve met stu­dents who are so fo­cused on their cho­sen path­way that they’re not aware of the mul­ti­tude of roles out there. At the Global Academy, we give stu­dents the prac­ti­cal skills to suc­ceed in a ca­reer in the broad­cast and dig­i­tal me­dia in­dus­tries, mean­ing they will have a higher chance of get­ting a job once they leave school.

Once you’ve thought about your next step, you should cre­ate a tan­gi­ble plan of how to get there. You can still ap­ply for a place at that school, col­lege or sixth form col­lege as a last minute place might now be avail­able. Just don’t delay.

Above all, don’t worry if it hasn’t worked out quite how you’d planned. It can of­ten lead you on a dif­fer­ent path to greater things.

We are a new school based in Hayes help­ing 14-19 year old stu­dents learn the tech­ni­cal skills for a ca­reer in the broad­cast and dig­i­tal me­dia in­dus­tries, along­side study­ing for their GC­SEs and A Lev­els. Fol­low and like us and keep in touch at glob­al­a­

We wish you the best of luck for your exam re­sults and hope that you achieve ev­ery­thing you wish for.
