What I studied: Biology, Chemistry, Physics with AS maths.
Where I am now: Science teacher at Bedlington Academy.
“Queen Alex helped me to develop my love of biology. My biology teacher at the time helped me to build an enclosed aquatic ecosystem which led to me visiting the Institute of Directors and receiving commendation from them for this project. That experience spurred me to study environmental science at university and the rest is history!
Queen Alex offered me the opportunity to truly pursue my interests and passions, I honestly don’t know where I would be right now if I hadn’t gone there.”
Grades achieved: A* Maths, A* Further Maths, A* Law
Next steps: Maths at Newcastle University

Next steps: Primary education at Durham University
“Queen Alex was a super place to learn and I was always treated as an adult, which was very important to me. I would recommend it to other young people who are considering where they should take their A Levels. The support from the teaching staff was excellent at all times and everyone was really friendly and helpful.”
