Carr Hill student Bethany Needham is eagerly looking forward to pursuing a career in medicine after gaining A grades in psychology and biology and Bs in chemistry and maths.
After clinching her place at the University of Liverpool, Bethany said: “I have wanted to have a career in medicine since I was in Year 9.
“And I’ve been volunteering at Blackpool Victoria Hospital as a ward helper for some time.
“I was relieved to get the grades I needed.
“I got no sleep last night and checked to see if I had been accepted on to the course as early as I could this morning.
“My dream is to work as a trauma surgeon for the army and now I’m one step closer to achieving that.”
Meanwhile, Soravi Goodwin is going to study aerospace engineering at the University of Sheffield after achieving A grades in maths and further maths and Bs in physics and chemistry.
He said: “I’m pleased with my grades.
“I did a lot of revision but the exams were hard so I was surprised I got the results I did, particularly in chemistry and further maths.
“My dad works as an engineer so it is a career that has always interested me. I’m looking forward to starting my course in September.”
Ben Wilson is aiming for a career in the Armed Forces after gaining the grades he required.
He hopes to follow a pre-Sandhurst course at Winchester in the autumn with a place at the prestigious army college next year and said after picking up his results: “It is something I have always wanted to do.”
Andrew Waller, headteacher at Carr Hill in Kirkham, was delighted with the results.
He said: “The results our students have achieved in both vocational and academic courses is a reflection of the effort they have put in over the last two years.
“On behalf of everyone at Carr Hill, we would like to congratulate our students for their well-deserved success and wish them all the best for their future.
“Many students are leaving our sixth form having spent seven years of their lives at Carr Hill and we have every confidence that they do so with skills, knowledge and qualifications to go on to do well in the next stage of their lives.”
