Past St. Mary’s student Mr Patrick Kirkham this week joined students, parents and staff as the Guest Speaker at the annual Sixth Form Celebration of Achievement Evening.
Patrick attended St. Mary’s from 2004 to 2011. He currently works for HM Treasury, the Government department responsible for economics and finance. He is currently Head of Strategy for Post–18 Education, following stints working on Education Spending and in the Financial Stability unit. Prior to this he completed a degree in Natural Sciences and an MPhil in the History of Science, both at the University of Cambridge.
St. Mary’s A-level results obtained in the summer enabled no fewer than 78% of the students to go to University to embark on their chosen degree courses, with most of these gaining places at their first choice university.
On the evening, students returned to receive not only their A-level certificates but also special individual subject and community awards.
Music on the evening was provided by. Anthony Beckwith and Rosie Egan
