Finlay has his sights set on UCFB

Sport Science student Finlay Barker has his sights set on University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) after achieving a good set of GCSE results.

Finlay will now move into the sixth form at the Olympic Legacy Park UTC where he will be studying an extended diploma in Sport Science alongside an A Level in Computer Science. He hopes this combination will give him the qualifications he needs to move onto UCFB, and ultimately into a well-paid job, once he finishes his studies.

After opening his results, he said: “I’m feeling good about my results.”

In his results, Finlay was award two Distinctions for his Cambridge National in Sports Science, 8s in Biology and Physics, 7s in Mathematics and Computer Science, 6s in English Literature and Chemistry and a 5 in English Language.

Finlay decided to make the move to the UTC in Year 9 to focus on sport and during the open day was impressed by the facilities and focus of the school.

Asked if the expectation had lived up to the reality he said: “UTC has been everything you need it to be and more. The facilities are really good and so are the teachers. We also get to use the English Institute of Sport and the 3G pitch.”
