STUDENTS from the Petersfield area who chose to study at Godalming have been celebrating their success.

Naomi Van Dongen, who swims competitively and previously attended The Petersfield School, has achieved three distinction* in the Business and Technology Education Council (BTEC) extended diploma in sport.

Naomi will now be taking her place at the University of Bath on the health and exercise science course.

The University of Bath is ideal for Naomi as she will continue to train and compete nationally.

Caitlin Allsop will be attending Downing College, University of Oxford, in September to study English, Zoe Allen will take her place at the Royal Veterinary College to study veterinary science and Zoe King will take up a place to study medicine at the University of Plymouth.

Caitlin and the two Zoes all achieved top grades and previously attended The Petersfield School.

Hugo Millard, who has been prolific in public speaking and debating while at Godalming College, will be taking his place at Durham to study English literature, Eyra Norman will be attending the Royal College of Music as a full scholar and Ella Burgoyne will be taking her place at Sheffield to study modern language.

Hugo, Eyra and Ella all previously attended Bohunt School at Liphook and achieved top grades.

Godalming College principal Emma Young said: “I am delighted and very proud of our students who have yet again performed at the highest levels.

“We had 2,550 entries at A Level and well over half of these were at A*-B, with our A* rate up on last year.

“Our BTEC results are also superb and high grades here are also higher than last year. We have exceeded national benchmarks.

“To sustain and improve on achievement, within a context of continued curriculum reform, and with highly inclusive entry requirements, is something the college is immensely proud of.

“Our specialist, dedicated team of teachers deserve much credit for the support they tirelessly provide, ensuring our students receive the highest quality education.

“The results provide students with an excellent stepping stone whether that be for university, apprenticeship or employment. We wish them all the very best for the future and congratulate them on their achievements while at college.”
