Former Students' Progress Celebrated

Year 13 A-level students who graduated last year were welcomed back with a recent celebration evening. 

The evening, put on by Plympton Academy, was held for past A-level students to have the opportunity to share their success stories. 

Many have gone onto university to study a range of subjects, including musical theatre, criminology and history.

Others are completing higher level apprenticeships or have gone into full-time employment. 

The evening was held in the new performing arts building, the Morpurgo Studios and was also attended by family and friends. 

The former students received certificates to mark their A-level successes and attendees enjoyed a 'guess the student' section with comments from the pastoral and teaching team.

Current performing arts students entertained everyone with a variety of dance and music.

Assistant principal and Sixth Form teacher Katie Kerr said, "It was fantastic to see so many of our former students join us so we could celebrate this occasion with them. As we say goodbye to them we also wish them luck in their future endeavours and we'll be keeping in touch with them to hear about their journey as they progress towards their goals."

The A-level presentation evening is undoubtedly one of the highlights in the school calendar, said Plympton Academy spokeswoman Clare Gilbert.

Principal Lisa Boorman said, "It's always great to welcome students back to celebrate their achievements and catch up on what they have done next."
