Pupils get university offers
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.
