Success Stories

George Stewart leaver 2016

My name is George Stewart, and I was a student in the first year group at Hazel Grove 6th Form.

After leaving 6th form I have been able to complete a 4 year Advanced Level Apprenticeship in Radiotherapy Engineering at the Christie Hospital here in Manchester. I have noticed that you have a section on your website called success stories, and we are currently looking for our next Apprentice.

Ms Chesworth and Mr Vickers were both key staff members in helping me at 6th form and I would like to contact them if possible in order to advertise our apprenticeship with them, so that any current students with an interest in Engineering could apply? It is an excellent opportunity including a fully funded Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Accredited degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, along with a competitive salary.


Fun was had at the Sixth Form Centre when past students came to pick up exam certificates.



Congratulations to all of our fantastic Year 12 and Year 13 students on a brilliant year of results.

Hazel Grove Sixth Formers had great cause for celebration as they celebrated Hazel Groves best ever A level results since the centre opened in 2013. 

The Sixth Form Centre celebrated its highest ever pass rate of 99.1%. The centre will also be sending its first set of students to both Oxford and Cambridge University.

Rosie  (pictured right) achieved A* in Geography and 2 A’s in Textiles and Art, Rosie will now join Oxford University in September to start a course in Archaeology and Anthropology.

Meanwhile Jessica  (pictured below) achieved 3 A*’s in Maths, Further Maths and Physics and will enroll at Leeds University to study Maths.  Poppy  (pictured below), achieved 2 A*’s and 2 A’s and will start the new term at Birmingham University.





The Next Chapter for our 2016 Sixth Form

From apprenticeships to moving to America, our Sixth Form 2016 Leavers have all taken a variety of routes into their futures.

In total 25 of last year’s leavers will be furthering their studies at university. This list includes Ethan Ames who will be studying Sports Journalism at Leeds University, Matthew Bowker who is now attending Sheffield University studying Geography, Jack Melville on an Accounting and Finance Degree at Salford University and Catherine Strangeway who has opted for a TV & Media Production Degree. Mathew Brewster will be travelling for a year and has secured a place at Sheffield University upon his return. We also have high-flying A* student Poppy Cliffe, who will be moving to Birmingham University to complete a Bio Medical Science Degree. Finally, but by no means least, we would like to congratulate Rosie Crawford, who will be studying Archaeology after gaining a very competitive place at the illustrious Oxford University.

In other routes, our South-African leaver, Cuan, will be currently packing to move to America with his family and we wish him all the best over in the States. We also have many students leaving us for more vocational courses linked closely with employers. Charlie Wagster will be partaking in an Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering and Euan Todhunter is training with Thomas Cook on their Apprenticeship Programme as an Aircraft Engineer.

Some students have even opted out of Higher Education and Training, such as Safia Ahmed, whose successful Primary School Application will now see her starting this term as a Teaching Assistant.

All in all, a fantastic year group, moving on to some bright-looking futures! Good luck to all.
