On Thursday 13th August many of our students at Hills Road were celebrating their A Level results. In celebration for all the achievements on the day, I asked a few students of their memories and experiences of Hills Road, as well as what they hope to achieve in the future.

When talking to all students I found that there were many similarities in their answers, all showing that they thoroughly enjoyed their time at Hills Road. One thing which did differ between each student is their individual plans for the future; showing that there is a great level of diversity at Hills Road. Each person’s experience here is unique and the College opens up a wide range of opportunities and possibilities for each of its students.

Benjamin Brown
A level subjects: Maths, Biology, Chemistry, Physical Education

What are your plans for next year?
“I’m doing a gap year and I’m planning on travelling to Tanzania and South America whilst also applying to do Medicine this September.”

What’s your fondest memory of being at Hills Road?
“Leavers Ball was amazing and it was just a really great experience. After that I would probably say running the HR4.5 in a beer bottle costume was a definite highlight.”

Is there anything you will or won’t miss?
“I’ll definitely miss my friends here…
But I won’t miss the all-nighters to get coursework done (although I’ll still probably have those at university) and getting the train early in the morning to get into college.”

Will you be celebrating tonight and if so, how?
“Let’s just say I’m hoping to have a really good night!”

Chloe Baker
A level subjects: English Literature, Government and Politics, History

What are your plans for next year?
“Next year I’m going to London School of Economics (LSE) in London to study Government and Politics.”

What’s your fondest memory of being at Hills Road?
“I found Leavers Ball amazing, but I also have such fond memories of just meeting new people and making long lasting friendships. From my new friends I have also got into new interests and hobbies because of them, which I’m really grateful for.”

Is there anything you will or won’t miss?
“I’ll miss the atmosphere and the unique teaching style of the teachers, who were all amazing.
The rush for the sofas in the Hub every lunch time is something I definitely won’t miss.”

Will you be celebrating tonight and if so, how?
“I will be celebrating and it will involve copious amounts of certain drinks.”

This tight knit group of girls are all going off to different universities such as Leeds or UCL, after having taken a gap year travelling. They all expressed that they will miss each other greatly in the next few years to come, as from September they will all be following different paths.

One shared memory that the girls will miss is sitting on the grass at the leisure park with the majority of other pupils in the summer time (eating large amounts of Sainsbury’s cookies!). They felt that this showed a real sense of the community spirit that is present at Hills Road and they have made many memories enjoying the sunshine there. Another thing that the girls will treasure is the independence that they got from attending Hills Road, and how it has helped set them up for the future. However, the girls agreed that they won’t miss the 9am starts every day and the stress of exams.

Overall the girls all really enjoyed their experiences at Hills Road and will all be going out and partying in celebration of their fantastic results!

Most of the boys are going off to university this year, two of whom are going to Nottingham, studying different courses.
Joshua Porter is taking a slightly different route by taking a gap year and hopefully taking part in a HelpX program, which provides a great opportunity to both travel, work and volunteer across the globe.

One of the fond memories which the group share is their first few days at Hills Road. The warming welcome they received as new students. Throughout their time here they have all enjoyed the experience, however they are also grateful to leave the school and see what other great achievements they can accomplish after their time here.

They will miss: The events that the College arranged to build and strengthen the relationships and community spirit of the College. Some said that they will miss certain subject teachers.
They won’t miss: Collectively, the boys all agreed they won’t miss the stress of getting their Extended Projects completed.

Tonight they are hoping to celebrate at the pub and reminisce about their times here over a pint.

At Hills Road we wish all of our students the very best for the future and would like to congratulate the class of 2015 again for their amazing results!
