Parkside Individual Success Stories

Josephine Sunderland, said: “I’m overwhelmed by it all. I was definitely worried by English the most but I passed it so I’m really happy.

“I got a 9 in PE, 8s in Spanish, French, Physics and Maths, 7 in Biology and English Lit, 6 in English Language and Geography. I’m very happy because it let’s me get into Hills Road.”

Grace Watts will be going to Hills Road to study double maths, chemistry and either physics or biology.

“I’m really happy,” she said. “The results were a lot better than I was expecting. I thought 9s were unachievable and I got a few so I’m really happy with that.”

She added: “I’m really excited [about going to Hills Road]. I’m kind of nervous. It’s a new start, making friends and getting settled in as well as working really hard.

Pauline Przywara is going to Hills Road. She said: “I’m very relieved. I set my standards quite low so I could be surprised. I’m very positively surprised, very happy. I got an 8 in chemistry. “No-one really knew what to expect [because of the new grading system]”

Joseph Knight is jetting off to Bosnia for social justice. He said: “I feel mainly good. English was my highest predicted subject but it was my lowest actual grade. I passed everything so I’m really happy, but it’s just a bit of a surprise. But then I’ve got some other subjects which I’m really happy with, so it balances out.

“I got an 8 in French and Spanish, I only started doing Spanish with the class in December.”

“I’m going to the United World colleges, I’m going on Saturday to Mostar in Bosnia and Herzegovina,” he said. “I’ll be studying the IB and the mission is peace and sustainability. I’m really interested in social justice issues and the world in general.

“I think i’ll learn a lot by being with people from 60 different countries in one school and will challenge my way of thinking. I’m really excited by that. My family are taking me on Saturday and will stay for four days then I’m staying until December.”

Max Rathbone achieved a fantastic set of grades in spite of personal difficulties.

He said: “I feel good, happy. Although it’s not quite what I wanted in some results, but definitely smashed it in others. I got 9s in all sciences, 9 in maths, geography and PE, 2 6s in English and a 7 in French. I’m hopefully going to Hills Road to study double maths, physics and chemistry.

“Round about December time my mum was diagnosed with breast cancer. That was interesting to work with during revision period. It was fairly difficult at first, interesting to overcome while revising – but she’s all better now!”
