Pupils get univer­sity of­fers

Macclesfield Express - - MOTORING -

THE fu­ture of car­ing pro­fes­sions looks to be in good hands thanks to univer­sity of­fers to stu­dents at Poyn­ton High School.

In to­tal, 11 stu­dents have re­ceived of­fers to study medicine, den­tistry, vet­eri­nary science, nurs­ing and mid­wifery af­ter a rig­or­ous se­lec­tion pro­ce­dure, var­i­ous in­ter­views and per­sonal suit­abil­ity tests on top of the nor­mal ap­pli­ca­tion process.

These stu­dents are now sit­ting ex­am­i­na­tions to gain the high grades needed to suc­cess­fully take up these places.

On a wider scale these stu­dents join a to­tal of 131 from Poyn­ton High School ap­ply­ing for univer­sity places this year.

Five stu­dents are hold­ing of­fers from Ox­ford or Cam­bridge for a va­ri­ety of cour­ses be­gin­ning in Septem­ber.

Di­rec­tor of Sixth Form, Richard Hard­man, said: “We are very proud of all of our Year 13 stu­dents and we wish them ev­ery suc­cess in reach­ing the lev­els of achieve­ment in the sum­mer re­sults that will al­low them to take up their first choice of­fers of univer­sity, ap­pren­tice­ships or full time em­ploy­ment.

“All of the stu­dents that have at­tended in­ter­views for the most com­pet­i­tive cour­ses and ap­pren­tice­ships have done par­tic­u­larly well in se­cur­ing of­fers.

“We con­grat­u­late all of them.”

The Sixth Form has also been very suc­cess­ful this year in work­ing with stu­dents ap­ply­ing for highly com­pet­i­tive Level 3 ap­pren­tice­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties with com­pa­nies such as Bar­clays, Hall and Pick­les, Net­work Rail and As­traZeneca, with eight stu­dents so far be­ing of­fered these ap­pren­tice­ships for Septem­ber.
