Student Perspectives and Destinations
 
The Concorde Partnership prides itself in preparing students both academically and socially for whatever path they decide to take in the future. Many of the students from the Concorde Partnership schools have gone on to do some incredible things. Below are some stories from some past students:
  

 

 

 

Aleksandra Wegera studied at Abbeywood Community School where she received an A level in Art, Law and History. She also completed the extended project qualification. She went on to study Law at Bristol University.

  

 

   

 

Ryan finished at Patchway with three A Levels in Drama, Media Studies and English Language. After applying for drama school and realising it wasn't for him, Ryan took a year out.

After his year out he went to Manchester Metropolitan University to study Contemporary Theatre and Performance where he left with a first class degree. Ryan now works in theatre companies up and down the company in a large variety of roles.   

"The staff at Patchway really encouraged me to continue with my artistic and creative endeavours, they were incredibly supportive when I had nothing planned for a whole year, which was slightly scary, but they reminded me that I had vision and focus that needed to be followed through and I am extremely grateful for that"

 

Sean Watts studied at Bradley Stoke Community School and is currently the multimedia intern for the premier league club West Bromwich Albion.         

"I had some great teachers that really helped me develop my understanding of grammar and ability to write - which is key in my job. Most of all I was always encouraged to learn about and believe I could still work in the sports industry - even though I wasn't ever good enough to play in it!"

 

      

Hollie finished at Patchway School with three A levels in English Literature, Psychology and History. She decided to go straight on after sixth form and went to UWE to study English Literature and History where she left with a 2:1.

After spending some time looking for jobs after university Hollie landed herself a job in the Civil Service.

"The staff at sixth form, from my experience, were really excellent and very encouraging. The step from GCSE to A Level is and nobody can ever prepare a student for that, but the teachers offered me lots of support to move forward and be the best I could be".

 

 

Jessica Monks studied at Bradley Stoke Community School and left with and A level in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, as well as an Extended Project qualification and an AS in Biology.

She is now in her fifth and final year of Medical School and hopes to be graduating as a doctor in July 2018.

 

"All the teachers and other staff at BSCS were brilliant, they all really cared about their students and all helped me to achieve my full potential; without them I would definitely not be where I am today".

  

 

 Katy Wardle attended Bradley Stoke Community School where she studied Sociology, Health and Social Care and the Extended Project. After attending a higher education fair organised by BSCS, Katy decided that she wanted to apply to be a Norland nanny.

 

"BSCS was so supportive with my application and the personalised approach by the staff really helped me to make sure my application was ready to be sent by the start of September. I am now training to be a nanny, loving every minute and am very thankful to BSCS for all of their support in helping me get there."

 

 

 

Tom finished at Patchway with A Levels in Physics, Maths and Chemistry. He also completed his Extended Project.

He went to Bristol University to study Physics and came out with a 1st class MSci degree in Physics and astrophysics.

He has now gone back to carry on his study by doing a PHD in the modelling of injection-induced seismicity.

"The teachers at Patchway Community College really made sixth form fantastic. The A-Level Biology trip was easily one of the best experiences that I've had in education".
