Coleg Cambria’s Deeside Sixth Form Centre is celebrating a raft of successful A Level results.

Among those to achieve top grades were the site’s Student of the Year Rebecca Jones, who secured three As in Biology, Chemistry and Maths.
She will now study Chemical Engineering and is weighing up her university options.

“I have always been interested in Sciences and Engineering and am delighted to be moving forward with positive A Level results,” said the 18 year-old, from Ellesmere Port.

“I hope to work in the pharmaceuticals industry in the future and would like to thank Cambria for their guidance and support over the years – I’ve loved every minute”.

Meanwhile, friends Luke Evans and Heath Kavanagh are both off to Durham University this September.

Former Argoed High School pupil Luke, from Mynydd Isa, received A*s Maths, Further Maths and Physics and completed the Welsh Baccalaureate (Skills Challenge) certificate.

The 17-year old – who turns 18 this week – will now study Maths at the university and plans to move into Theoretical Physics and a career in finance.

Heath, 18, from Ellesmere Port, will study Computer Science after gaining A*s in Maths and Further Maths and a As in the Welsh Baccalaureate and Computer Science.

Amelia Humble, 18, from Buckley, was on cloud nine after achieving A*s in Maths, Psychology and Biology, and will go on to study Business Management at the University of Leeds, and Rhyl-based Keziah Hendive, 18, will begin a degree in Child Nursing at King’s College London following her grades – As in Psychology and Biology, and a B in Maths. Both also completed their Welsh Baccalaureate certificates.

Congratulations also goes to Erin Roberts, 18, from Caerwys, a former Ysgol Glan Clwyd pupil who now begins a five-year Veterinary Medicine course, first at Aberystwyth University, then the Royal Veterinary College, London.

After achieving As in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology, she said: “I am thrilled to get the grades I needed, the dream now is to enjoy my time at university then go on to work in veterinary science, that’s what I’ve always wanted to do.

“I’ve had a lot of support from Cambria, especially putting together my application and personal statement, and my family are all so excited – they’re even more excited than me!

“Thanks to everyone at the college, it’s been an amazing experience.”

Head of Deeside Sixth Miriam Riddell added: “Following such a challenging time for the students to receive such positive results is heartening. They’ve worked so hard, and we are very, very proud of them all.”

Phoebe Davies (above) and Georgia Scarisbrick (below) have secured places at Oxford University following exceptional A Level results.

Phoebe, from Hope, is to study for a degree in Archaeology and Anthropology after receiving A*s in Drama, English Literature, Maths, and an A in the Welsh Baccalaureate (Skills Challenge) certificate.

A former pupil at Castell Alun High School, the 18 year-old said: “I am looking forward to studying

Archaeology and Anthropology at Oxford, it’s a dream come true and I’m really excited about it.”

Georgia, 18, from Flint, achieved A*s in Politics and English Literature, an A in History and the Welsh

An ex-pupil of the town’s high school, she will begin a BA in History and Politics next month and said:

“I am really looking forward to beginning my studies at Oxford, it’s amazing to have been successful
in getting in there.

“My dream has always been to go into politics, which will certainly be interesting!

My family are allso proud, we can’t believe it but are absolutely delighted.”

Georgia added: “I am so thankful to everyone at Deeside, if I hadn’t come here, I probably would have never applied.

They helped me so much with mock interviews and my personal statement and
I’ll always be grateful.”

Miriam Riddell said it is the first time the Connah’s Quay site has had two students secure places at the university in the same year and wished them luck for the future.
