Student Stories

 

Here are some our current Year 12 and Year 13 students explaining how they have benefitted from studying in our Sixth Form.

 

I am currently studying my A Levels in Business, Sociology and Sport. What I enjoy most about Sixth Form at St Greg’s is the social environment; the teachers are always available to help outside of lesson time. I did well in my GCSEs and since then, Sixth Form has helped me improve further.  The subject I like most in the Sixth form is Business.  I plan to go to university and study International Business Management and in future, start my own business. You should come to St Greg’s as it is a really good environment and the teachers are always helpful.

I am in year 13 and currently studying A level Biology, Chemistry and Maths. What I enjoy most about Sixth Form here at St Greg’s, is being allowed to be independent and studying subjects that I really enjoy. My GCSEs went really well for me I achieved six As, two A*s and four B grades. I really enjoyed doing Science and Product Design. I am planning to take a Gap year at the end of my A Levels and then hopefully apply to go to University to study Biomedical Science.  Sixth Form at St Greg’s is a calm environment, and encourages us to also be independent; it has helped me to be self-sufficient.  It has made life a lot less scary knowing I will have my A Levels very soon. My Teachers have been amazing this year.

Year 13 Student

 

I am currently studying my A Levels in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. What I like most about St Gregs Sixth Form, as well as it being a good social environment, is we have really friendly teachers and they help a lot with guidance.  I also like the independence; we have to do our work during study periods.  I joined St Greg's in March 2017 at the end of Year 11.  I applied to do a Level 2 course in Sixth From and did my GCSEs in Combined Science, English Language and Maths achieving three grades at 6 and two grade at 5. I really enjoy Chemistry and Physics and I plan to go to University to study either Bachelor of Dental Surgery or Dermatology. Students should come to St Greg’s as the teachers are really supportive, they have helped me through a short time to get me through my GCSEs and now during my A Levels.

Year 12 Student

I am currently studying my A Levels in Business Philosophy and Sociology. What I enjoy most about Sixth Form at St Gregs is how comfortable I am in learning here, the class sizes are very good and I feel confident asking anyone questions. I was very happy receiving my GCSE results as I achieved an 8 in English Literature, along with two 7s in English Language and RE. In Maths, Science and Sociology I got a 5. Next year I plan to apply for University to study Business and I plan to run my own business one day.

Year 12 Student

 

I am in year 13 and I am currently studying Chemistry, Maths and Philosophy. What I enjoy most about being at St Gregs is the friends and teachers I have here. I have also really liked the school events that have taken place here, as well as, the trips we have been out on. I achieved A*-A in all my GCSEs and I have been accepted to study Chemistry next year with a year abroad at University.  My future career will be in Science.  At St Greg's Sixth Form, you are able to make closer relationships with other peers as well as the teachers, which makes school life much more enjoyable and efficient. The teachers are able to know your strengths and weaknesses more specifically.

Year 13 Student

 

I am currently in year 13 studying Biology, Chemistry and Physics. I really enjoy my subjects and my teachers are good in what they do. I did well in my GCSEs and although this allowed me to study the three Sciences at A Levels, but I did not achieve what I was expecting and this may have been due to my lack of motivation. However when I entered Sixth Form I came with the right mind-set.  The subject I most enjoy in is Physics. I am planning to study Medicine at University either at the end of this year or after having a gap year. I am hoping to go into the Health sector and become a Neurosurgeon. Students should come to our Sixth Form if they want to be pushed to their maximum and achieve anything they want – there is reward only if you put in the work required. 

Year 13 Student

 

 

I am in year 12 and currently studying Art, Business and Product Design. What I have enjoyed so far at St Gregs is getting to focus on a much smaller number of subjects, allowing me to spend more time on them. This will help me get a better grade. Also being in Sixth Form allows us to get our food and drink from the canteen at any time without the queue. I performed well in my GCSEs and passed them all. I particularly liked DT and I am also enjoying it now at A Level. I am planning to use this, to most likely apply for University next year to study something with Design – Architecture or Game Design. If not I will look into the apprenticeships that are available in Design. In Sixth Form, the teachers are very helpful and enthusiastic. They are willing to stay after school and even on weekends! To help us finish our work to the best ability.
