In-demand Millom students look forward to bright futures

SIXTH-FORM students have set their sights on some exciting careers, ranging from engineering to working with horses.

Students at Millom School’s Sixth Form are welcoming university offers for a range of degree courses.

Jamie Bentley, of Ravenglass, has offers to study mechanical and mechatronics engineering at Manchester and Sheffield universities. The 17-year-old needs three As.

Jamie is waiting to hear from his top choice, Imperial College London, which will require two A*s and an A.

He said: “Engineering is something I’ve always wanted to do.

“I really want to go to Imperial for the reputation and to study in London.”

Horse enthusiast Julie Fell is going to study an equine science degree before moving into veterinary training.

The 17-year-old of Bootle is planning to study at Bishop Burton College, Hull, and needs 200 UCAS points.

Julie said: “I’ve been involved with horses all my life.

“I have four horses and I grew up on a diary farm.

“I love working with animals, and being able to help them and their owners would be great.”

The teenager said she was keen to visit new places, having only lived in her village.

Julie said that she is glad that she chose to continue her studies in Millom, as she knew all her teachers.

Louise Richards, 17, of Haverigg, plans to study accounting and finance.

She has conditional offers from all the universities she applied to.

Her top choice is Chester and she needs 280 UCAS points.

She said: “I’ve always enjoyed dealing with numbers and I feel I’ll be good at this course and I’ll enjoy it. Chester is a really lovely campus university and the course structure looks really good there.

“I’m excited to go to university. I’m looking forward to having cities on my doorstep.

“I’d like to come back to Cumbria, hopefully with my own business.”
