I have to say that I was a little worried about leaving my small primary school and joining Bournemouth School (it seemed so big!), but I soon found my way around and made some new friends. I have enjoyed the House Competitions, especially rugby and basketball. At the beginning of the year, I did find balancing homework against my out-of-school interests a bit of a challenge, but I've still been able to continue training and competing at a national level in trampolining. I really like the food and the range of opportunities available to everyone. All the students seem to get on with each other really well. I'm really looking forward to next year.

Not all students leave the school to access a university education. Alex Hudson is joining the Dyson Institute. Five students will start higher level apprenticeship schemes. One student is leaving us to join the RAF and another is to become a professional cyclist. Well done! https://t.co/4huvrh6zcu
Eight students leave the school to either to study medicine or dentistry, another will be joining the Royal College of Music and one student will be studying at Rotterdam Erasmus University next year – remarkably, nearly 30% of the cohort attained 3A grades or better. https://t.co/9JT54ppkXQ
Tim Georges has secured a place at Oxford as have Ben Jones, Sean Cooney and James Wakefield. Alex Paul-Ajuwape will be travelling further afield to take up a place at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. So many have done superbly well this year! https://t.co/4bHX93xSHq
Great results today - amongst the most highly achieving students were James Alder, Jack Farrier-Ledden, Tim Georges, Tom Gray and Alex Paul-Ajuwape (all achieving 4A*s), Matthew Lane, Robert Olliffe, Alex Halim and Samuel Wykes (all achieving at least 3A*s). Well done!
In school, awaiting the arrival of students to collect their results from 8 am. Over 40% of all A level entries were graded A* or A (88% A*-C). I am sure there will be the usual mix of emotions this morning - but overall some fantastic results! https://t.co/NXSpJ41RkW
