As of today, 59 students (approximately 75 per cent) have already secured their university places with the remaining students expected to confirm their places over the next few days as they go through clearing and adjustment.

Students will take up offers of university places in a diverse range of courses and disciplines, including sports management, game design and development, and cosmetic design in addition to subjects such as criminology, astrophysics, dental hygiene and mechanical engineering.

The school was particularly proud of the diversity of subjects and degree courses chosen this year, to complement traditional subject choices such as law, English literature, and primary education.

Three students will go on to study abroad, including Ayllin Schoengut-Hecker who will study chemical engineering at Lafayette College, in Pennsylvania.

All staff at Bacon’s offered their congratulations to the Year 13 students for their success this year and wished them good luck in their future studies and careers.
