It's A-Level Results Day For Sttingbourne's Students!

All over Sittingbourne students are finding out whether or not they have acquired the A-level grades they need to take the next steps in their life's journey.

Below is a look at how each school performed:

Borden Grammar School for Boys

116 students sat exams at Borden Grammar school and 64% achieved A*-C.

One pupil at the school who stood-out was Craig Clark who achieved the best results ever achieved by a single pupil.

Westlands/SCC/Swale Skills Centre

Over 170 students sat their exams at Westlands School, Sittingbourne Community College and Swale Skills Centre. Between those students the overall A* to E pass rate was 99%.

Josie Pengelly of Swale Sixth Form obtained triple distinctions in dance and an A in English Literature which means she is off to university.  

I didn't obtain the grades I needed, so what next?


On today's 'In The Bourne' Demi Hamandishe spoke to Julie Newlan the Pro Vice Chancellor at the University of Hertfordshire who advised that students should remain positive and call their chosen university's clearing hotline. In addition students should visit the UCAS website which has a lot of information and guidance on clearing.


Demi also spoke to Harry Gooding from 'Arch Apprentices' on today's show, who informed listeners that university degrees are failing to prepare students for work and is a costly exercise. Harry went on to recommend that students should consider apprenticeships not as a second choice but one where you can still get qualifications, some even at degree level, along with great work experience and pay.

Harry finished with a final word of advice which was to "not put too much weight on your results, your career is a long game and the first day of it is yet to come. These results are the end of education but not the end of your career".
