Case Studies & Testimonials

As a student at Shoreham Academy 6th Form, I was able to pursue a wide range of interests, studying for A levels in maths, physics, English and 3D design. I was part of both a close academic and social community, which enabled me to not only enjoy my subjects and work towards qualifications, but also gave me opportunities to develop skills through extra-curricular experiences, such as designing and leading an educational project. The 6th Form provided great assistance with applying to university and helped me on my way to getting an offer from the University of Oxford where I am currently reading Earth Sciences, a subject where I learn about the entirety of the Earth’s system, from atmospheric physics to oceanic chemistry and more than everything in-between! I thoroughly enjoy all aspects of my course; I work in a fantastic department in Oxford and travel to stunning locations for applied fieldwork study.
