Isobel Walker and Georgia Leather achieved top grades in biology, chemistry and geography this summer after completing their A Levels at the College’s Hillsborough campus on Livesey Street.

Isobel chose to study a chemistry degree at the University of Sheffield. Her career ambition is to become an analytical chemist. She said: “It’s been very rewarding studying at the College. I really love chemistry because it’s fundamental to life.”

Georgia decided to go onto an advanced engineering apprenticeship at the AMRC Training Centre in Rotherham. Her career ambition is to become a metallurgist.

She said: “Coming to the College has made me feel more confident and it’s helped me to become an independent learner. I love engineering because it’s analytical and creative and involves problem solving, which I find really rewarding.”
