PASSMORES Academy is delighted that three of its ex-students have recently received offers to study at Cambridge University.
Jenna Buller, James Moseley and Aurelija Gibaviciute, left Passmores in 2019 having achieved outstanding results across all subjects in their GCSE exams. Their hard work and dedication now means they have the chance to attend one of the world’s top universities. Jenna will be reading psychology, James will read history and Aurelija has chosen architecture.
We caught up with Jenna, who will be studying at Emmanuel College, which she first visited as a Year 9 student on a trip to the university organised by Passmores back in 2017. Jenna explained she discovered her love of studying psychology after choosing this as one of her GCSE subjects at secondary school.
This inspired her to continue studying it at sixth form and beyond. Jenna told us she wanted to go to Cambridge University because of its beautiful grounds and esteemed history as a world-class education provider, but admits she never dreamt she would actually be able to go there.
But throughout her school career, Jenna’s teachers were always so encouraging, that she decided to pursue her dream and apply. After completing her personal statement and submitting the UCAS application, the gruelling Cambridge selection process began. This included interviews which, this year, were conducted online.
Once her undergraduate degree is complete, Jenna hopes to study for a masters degree in forensic psychology and start her career in either the prison sector or police force.
Jenna said: ‘I would like to thank every member of staff at Passmores for always being so supportive, including those that never taught me. The dedication shown by all of the teachers there truly goes above and beyond. My years at Passmores were some of the best and I am eternally grateful for all of the opportunities which were offered to me’.
Co-principal of Passmores, Vic Goddard said: ‘This is great news – congratulations to Jenna, James and Aurelija. They’ve worked hard for this and we’re so proud of the dedication they’ve shown towards achieving their potential. We wish them all the very best in their future endeavours and hope they’ll keep in touch’.
