Ipswich: Future looks bright for Copleston students after A-level results

STUDENTS at one Ipswich high school are looking to the future after collecting their A-level results this morning.

Copleston High School students Michelle Chung, Kaya Corbett and Lucy Tomlinson were all delighted with their results and are already planning their next steps.

Michelle, 18, scooped two A*s and an A along with an AS-level A and will be going on to university in Leeds to study Maths and Geography.

Kaya, 18, got three As and one A* and now plans to take a gap year before studying Medicine at Durham.

Lucy, also 18, was thrilled with her two A*s, A and B and is going to Suffolk College to study a foundation degree in Art before hopefully going on to Art School.

Esther Watkin, specialist director of sixth form, was pleased and proud of the students’ results.

She said: “A lot of our students that have done really well are those that were busy – those that have really put in the time and embraced what sixth form is all about.”
