AXMINSTER: Community college students on the pathway to success
Wednesday, 18 December 2013
Four Axe Valley Community College students have successfully applied for what is known as university Pathway Programmes at Bristol and Exeter.
As a result, Vicky Tredrea, Annabel Jackson, Alex Haworth and Jonny House can look forward to regular visits to their chosen university and take part in a wide variety of lectures, workshops and benefit from mentoring and support. Assistant headteacher Darren Holland explained: “When our new students started the Sixth Form this September, we encouraged them to apply for a variety of programmes being offered.
"We strongly urge our students to aspire to be the very best and taking advantage of such activities is one strategy. "This is an excellent achievement and we are proud of their success. We look forward to their feedback to other students over the next few months and years."
Vicky said: "I am delighted to have been selected to be a part of the Pathways to Law Programme as it is a brilliant opportunity to gain an insight into the future profession I am to have in law."
Annabel commented: "It is an honour to be selected, the opportunity is amazing and I can’t wait for the programme to start."
Alex was equally happy and said: "I am really glad that I got onto the programme as it increases my aspirations for going to university."
Jonny concluded: "The Exeter University Star Programme will be an excellent stepping stone."
