The Long Eaton School congratulates their A-Level students on some great results

An Oxford University place and a midwifery course dream come true are among today’s A-level success stories at The Long Eaton School.

Matthew Tebbutt is off to Somerville College at the University of Oxford to study maths and computer science, with A* grades for maths and physics, and As for chemistry and computer science.

Matthew said: “I’m massively relieved. That work has paid off over the last couple of years and I’ve managed to do it.”

Alice Oldershaw said she was “very happy” with her double distinction star plus distinction for an Extended Diploma in Health and Social Care, which wins her a place to study midwifery at the University of Nottingham.

Alice said “Since I was in year seven, when my auntie was pregnant with my cousin, I was really intrigued and wanted to be part of the birth. At that point, that’s when I decided I wanted to be a midwife.

“No-one in my family has been through a medical route. It’s a bit different from the rest of the family but something I want to try and give a go.”

Mark Shipman, principal at The Long Eaton School – part of Archway Learning Trust – said: “The Long Eaton School congratulates all Year 13 students on again a very successful year. Sitting their first set of formal school examinations our students have again performed well. The school is incredibly proud of their personal and collective achievements.

“Students leaving The Long Eaton School this year will go on to take up a variety of positions in employment, higher apprenticeship, or at university. We congratulate our students taking on degree apprenticeships with Rolls Royce, Balfour Beatty and Cooper Parry. Likewise, our students leaving us to study at Oxford, as well as various Russell group Universities including University of Birmingham, University of Sheffield and University of Nottingham.”

Students leaving The Long Eaton School this year are taking up studies in a range of disciplines including computer science, English, criminology, neuroscience, sports rehabilitation, midwifery, accounting, music and psychology.
