Students shine as A-level results roll in

Liverpool Life Sciences UTC – the Baltic Triangle-based school for 14-19 year olds – has received an amazing set of A-level results showing that the school has been improving year-on-year, since it opened its doors five years ago.

Part of the Northern Schools Trust, the UTC (University Technical College) works closely with industry leaders and healthcare institutions to provide specialist, career-focused education, in partnership with local universities. Specialising in science and healthcare, the UTC has consistently delivered on the promise to provide an excellent crop of students, who are destined for careers in medicine, nursing, midwifery, biomed and engineering, to name a few.

The class of 2019 is no exception. 89% of these exceptional students have achieved an A*-C in chemistry; 79% attained A*-C in criminology – the first year that they have offered the course; 87% of BTEC Applied Science students achieved DDD (Distinction) or above; whilst 79% of BTEC health and social care students also received DDD or higher.

Ben Monaghan chose to study at the UTC because of the range of cutting-edge equipment on offer; and, his daily commute from Southport paid off, as his application to study chemistry at the University of York, has been accepted.

The University of Liverpool will be gaining another new student in Ryan Tindsley; the Walton student joins the roll call in September to study physics, after achieving an incredible A*A*A in maths, further maths, and physics.

Courtney White and Zoe Halbert have been accepted into LJMU to study midwifery and paramedics, respectively. Both students achieved a brilliant D*D*D (starred Distinction) at A-level.

Paige Clarke is also heading down the healthcare route, after picking up D*D*D and from September she will be studying mental health nursing at Edge Hill University.

Liferpool Life Sciences UTC work with some of the biggest names in the healthcare industry to provide outstanding degree apprenticeships. Archie McLean achieved an amazing AAB in his A-levels – securing him a degree apprenticeship in research and development, at Unilever.

Principal Ian Parry who was in his final year in charge of the UTC, before he moves on to Meols Cop High School, said: “It has been another exceptional year at the UTC with students again accessing some of best universities and degree apprenticeships the country has to offer.

“The UTC is now consistently not only achieving some of the best grades throughout the city region but most importantly our students are making informed decisions about their futures and building an experience and skill portfolio allowing them to fulfil those aspirations. The UTC is a very special place and I am very confident it will continue to go from strength to strength”.
