A-level Results Day 2021: Long Road Sixth Form College
The “tenacity and commitment” of students at Long Road Sixth Form College students has paid off with excellent results.
A statement from the college said: “We are so very proud of you today. These last two years have been extraordinarily demanding. Like students across the globe, you have had to cope with so much uncertainty and sudden change, to adapt to new ways of learning and the cancellation of exams.
“We are proud too of our Long Road staff team who adapted brilliantly to all the many challenges and we are in awe of you, our students, who have proved you are an amazing group of people: creative, thoughtful, intelligent, passionate and kind.
“It is clear too from the excellent grades you have achieved today that your tenacity and commitment has paid off. We can’t wait to see what you all do next.”
Fiyinfoluwa Adeyemi had only been in the UK for three months before completing her GCSEs at Castle Manor Academy, Haverhill.
She was admitted to study L3 Diploma in media studies and L3 extended diploma in business studies at Long Road.
She said: “Two years later, I am a D*D*D* L3 graduate, with an admission to study communications and media at the University of Liverpool, which was my top choice.
“My favourite thing about studying at Long Road was my whole journey: from making friends, learning, and loving my course in year one to adapting to the challenges of remote studying and displaying resilience, courage and perseverance while learning and growing in year two.
“I am grateful to my parents for their massive support during online teaching and remote studying. A huge thanks to my media teachers Robert Wright in year one, Maryam Sharifi, Bird Lewis in year two for their continued support and words of encouragement throughout my studies in college. Tim Whittaker and Luke Fowles helped in drafting and concluding a strong personal statement and applying for universities. Thank you, Long Road!”
