Coleshill School A-levels 2023: Students celebrate results

Coleshill School A-levels 2023 – The Coleshill School, part of the respected Arthur Terry Learning Partnership (ATLP) has welcomed back its Year 13 students to celebrate their achievements as they collect their A-level, Level 3 BTEC and Cambridge Technical qualifications. 

The students have achieved their grades through demonstrating high levels of determination, perseverance, and resilience which has been essential for this cohort of students who have faced multiple challenges throughout their educational journey at the Coleshill School because of the pandemic; being unable to sit their GCSE examinations, learning online from home and disruption related to self-isolation.

Coleshill School A-levels 2023 – school’s pride

However, despite all of this, the school is incredibly proud of its students who are now moving onto their next steps.

Ian Smith-Childs, Headteacher, said: “Today we celebrate the hard work, determination and resilience of our Year 13 students. 

“We are incredibly proud of all of our students, both for their hard work academically, but also for the amazing young adults they have become. Our Year 13 students have developed their SPIRIT skills, which will enable them to go on and be successful, whichever path they chose.

Exam Results advice

  • Waiting for and receiving your exam results can be an anxious time.
  • Young minds, the UK’s leading charity fighting for children and young people’s mental health, offer advice for young people feeling anxious and nervous about your results.
  • Here are some top tips:

Congratulate yourself

  • Whether you get the results you expected or not, that’s OK. Try to celebrate what you have achieved, whether that’s academically or not – you’ve survived your exams and you deserve to be proud of that. Try to celebrate what you have achieved.

Consider your options

  • School isn’t the end of the world – you can do so much more, even if you don’t pass your exams. Education is everything, but education doesn’t stop at school; you can be educated on an apprenticeship and continue learning. You can do so much more – even if you don’t pass your exams.

Contemplating University Clearing?

  • Going through Clearing to get into a university isn’t always a bad thing.
  • People who didn’t get in to their first choice university went through Clearing and were often accepted to better universities than they originally planned.
  • In some cases, even those who achieved their target grades went through Clearing because they decided they wanted to go to a different university than they had initially applied for.
  • People who didn’t get in to their first choice university went through Clearing and were often accepted to better universities.

Take it slow

  • Moving onto the next step is a very personal thing, so giving yourself time to breathe could give you a whole new perspective.
  • Try not to make decisions in the heat of the moment. Take as much time as you need to work out your next steps, and ask for help if you need it.
  • Take as much time as you need to work out your next steps.
