After an unprecedented year, University of Birmingham School Sixth Form students received their A level qualifications today. The results are testament to the dedication and commitment students have shown, not only in the past few months, but throughout their two years here at the sixth form. Their strength of character and determination has ensured progression to higher education and employment.
“It is fantastic to see our students move on to study interesting and varied courses at university. Although their exams were cancelled, our students worked exceptionally hard in their time with us and thoroughly deserve their success.” Mr Liam Dwyer, Assistant Vice Principal, Sixth Form.
Mr Colin Townsend, University of Birmingham School’s Principal, commended students on their individual and varied successes. “No other cohort of sixth formers has been asked to complete their schooling in the context of a global pandemic. This has presented extraordinary challenges, and we are extremely proud of the fortitude shown by our young people. I am also very grateful for the ocean-deep support and encouragement provided by our families and our staff throughout their studies, but especially the more recent exceptional months. It is heartening to recognise so many cases of individual student excellence leading to successful progression. On behalf of everyone at the School, warmest congratulations, and wishing every student happiness in their next steps beyond the University of Birmingham School Sixth Form.”
