Year 13 students are celebrating this morning after their hard work, determination and resilience has paid off with exam results that will open doors to the next stages of their lives.

Excited A Level and BTEC students picked up their results this morning, bringing to an end seven years of secondary and sixth form schooling.

Many of our leavers are going on to study at university, taking up apprenticeships or going straight into employment. All of them leave as well-rounded young people with a wealth of knowledge, experiences and learning behind them.

Jo Halliday, Executive Principal said:

We can never overestimate the impact that lockdown had on this cohort of students in Year 11, and then again in Year 12; their resulting destinations represent the high aspirations and determination they have shown over this challenging period. This year group played a pivotal role in putting life back into the school through the House System and sports last summer, and we expressed our gratitude to them for this at their leavers’ assembly. We very much look forward to welcoming them all back to present their certificates in December, and we wish them much happiness moving forward.

Charlotte Badarello, Head of School, said:

We are really proud of the accomplishments of our Year 13 students. This summer’s exams were the first external assessments the group have taken as they were unable to sit GCSEs in 2020. The last two years have been incredibly tough, including periods of remote learning, but this incredible group have demonstrated great tenacity and resilience and have made real impact on the culture of learning and wellbeing at Theale Green School. This year group will also include students who will be the first in their family to go to university; it is a tremendous achievement, and we are very proud of every one of them.

Notable achievements, amongst several others, include:

  • Amy McLaren who will read Biomedical Sciences at University of York. This is an astonishing accomplishment for Amy, particularly given that she moved to the UK at the start of Year 11 from New Zealand where she had studied very little Science.
  • Max Clift – Southampton University to study Economics & Accounting
  • Alistair Browne –Loughborough University to study Commercial Management
  • Mohammed Albatraseh – University of Bath Maths and Physics
  • Megan Warren – Leeds University to study Environment & Business Studies
  • Natasha Clark – Swansea University to study Zoology
  • Rebecca Brennan – Cardiff University to study Criminology
  • Rachel Blackman and Kayleigh McCaugherty who will both be studying Midwifery at Cardiff University
  • Memmee Alex – Birmingham City University to study Business Management

We wish every success to all of our students who go on to further education, higher level apprenticeships with national employers such as AWE, as well as full time employment management roles.

We are offering information, advice and guidance to anyone who is unsure as to what to do next after their A Levels/BTECs.

Our vision is to ‘transform lives through learning’ and the journey our students have been on while at Theale Green School means they are extremely well prepared for the next step.

Theale Green School was rated Good by Ofsted at its inspection in April 2022.
