Exciting offers for the future

Two students from Space Studio Banbury, Leah and Emily, have excelled in their future ambitions. Leah has secured an apprenticeship with Jaguar Land Rover and Emily has an offer of a place at Oxford University.

Jaguar Land Rover Degree Apprenticeship
Leah has fought off strong competition to join the Jaguar Land Rover Degree Apprenticeship scheme. She says: ‘I have a strong interest in problem-solving, which sparked a passion in engineering from an early age. I joined Space Studio Banbury because of the school’s key focus on the subjects I enjoyed and loved. I have developed my academic skills here in Physics, Maths and Computing, but also my personal skills through project based learning and running electives, such as the engineering club. These skills and experiences have aided me towards my goal of becoming an engineer.

Through the Jaguar Land Rover apprenticeship scheme, I will complete several qualifications, including a sponsored degree at Warwick University, while also being paid. As well as this academic experience, I will also be involved in several areas of engineering within the company. This will allow me to establish the area of engineering I excel at and enjoy the most.’

Oxford University offer
Emily in year 13 has been offered a place at Oxford University to study chemistry. It is a huge achievement to be selected for such a prestigious university.

'My passion for the sciences has been apparent since a young age. Being at Space Studio Banbury has helped me to extend that interest and explore new and exciting scientific ideas through my A-levels in Chemistry, Biology, Maths and Further Maths.

In the summer of Year 12 I attended the UNIQ Oxford Summer School Pro-gram for Chemistry and this gave me the confidence in my ability to apply for a degree at Oxford University.

Through a lot of hard work and determination I managed to secure a conditional offer to study Chemistry at Oxford and am now studying for my exams in the summer to make that dream a reality.'
