Four A*s for Academic Scholar Eowyn who chooses less traditional further education route
Westonbirt School Academic Scholar, Eowyn Huntley, is celebrating an outstanding set of A level results with 4 A*s in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Physics.
In a record-breaking year that sees the first ever co-ed cohort receive A levels at Westonbirt and more than a third of grades awarded at A*, Eowyn is delighted to have secured a clean sweep of A*s and a prestigious degree-level apprenticeship position with Unilever.
Executive Chairman of the Wishford Schools group, Sam Antrobus, said of her achievement;
“Eowyn is an outstanding academic scholar with a bright future ahead of her. Nurturing talent and inspiring young minds are integral to the school’s educational ethos and we have been delighted to support Eowyn to achieve her potential through the Wishford academic scholarship scheme. She has truly grasped the opportunity and has thrived at Westonbirt.”
Eowyn said of her results;
“I have been at Westonbirt since Year 9 and its been a brilliant place to be! I have learnt so much being here, not just academically but also from the amazing staff and the opportunities given to me. I feel I have gained many skills for life which will help me on my next adventure as a degree apprentice with Unilever.”
Deputy Head, Academic, Simon Balderson, is unsurprised by Eowyn’s decision to follow the less traditional degree apprenticeship route and says;
“In a rapidly changing world, the practical experience offered by a degree level apprenticeship alongside academic study makes it an increasingly appealing route for some of our highest achieving students.”
