Class of 2019

A level results

We’ve had another year of excellent A level results at the Studio – our first under our new principal, Jill Davies.

Our average grade in vocational is a D (distinction) and arts and graphics results have been amazing. As a result of the strength of our results, we’re now running an Extended Diploma in games, VFX and animation.

As ever, our Studio students are going to a wide variety of exciting destinations. Degree apprenticeships have proved popular amongst our students this year, giving them the opportunity to work with a global business ad earn while they learn.

Mia Campbell has secured a degree apprenticeship in data analytics with Unilever, home to brands including PG Tips, Hellmann’s, Ben & Jerry’s and Simple. She’ll spend the next three-and-a-half-years using data analytics to unlock insights to working data, market trends, brand and future technologies and interrogate data, systems and methodologies within areas including design, robotics, future technologies, and sustainability.

An anonymous student will be heading to GCHQ to take up a degree apprenticeship in software engineering and cyber security; Tom Humphries is also taking up a degree apprenticeship in software engineering at investment bank JP Morgan, following his A* in maths and D*D* (starred distinction) in software and programming.

Tyler Rotherham has spent the summer working at Sony, and following his (starred distinction) D*D*D*D, he will head to Abertay this autumn to study games production.

Sami Richards gained an A in computing alongside (starred distinction)  D*D* in scripting and programming; Ollie Bielby Smith secured an A* in graphics plus a starred distinction (D*D*) in digital publishing, and will now head to the University of Leeds. Both he and Alex Sinir have been at the Studio for the last four years, taking their GCSEs and A levels here. Alex gained a DD (distinction) in enterprise, alongside an A in his graphics A level, and an A in his EPQ (extended project qualification).
