Headteacher Tony McGuinness said: “We are exceptionally proud of our Sixth Form students and their achievements which are a direct result of their commitment and efforts during their time at All Saints. These results are also attributable to the dedication of their teachers and the continued support of their parents, families and the wider Kirkby community. Congratulations to all!”
Many students from All Saints will now move on to their chosen University courses in a range of subjects including Law, Nursing, Teaching, Policing, Firefighting, Sports Management, Quantity Surveying, Accounting, Animation and Media. Several students have secured much sought after high quality apprenticeships with local and national companies including a degree apprenticeship opportunity with Amazon.
Top performing student Madeleine Long added: “I would not have been able to achievement these results without such great support from the staff and the life changing opportunities and experiences that I received such as the Duke of Edinburgh Gold, a visit to Auschwitz and the many army visits I took part in as part of the Protective Services Academy”.
Cllr Margaret Harvey, Knowsley Council’s Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, said: “Congratulations to all the young people in Knowsley who have collected A Level, BTEC and other exam results.
“Today is the culmination of all your hard work over the last couple of years or more, and it’s an important milestone in your lives. If you got the results you needed or maybe even achieved far better than you expected, then today is a huge celebration. But even if you are disappointed with your grades, remember, there are still an unlimited number of opportunities out there.
“So, take as much advice as you can, and you will find the path that’s right for you.”
