Maisie, Computing

I’ve really enjoyed Computing, I wasn’t sure if I would in the beginning. I’ve learnt new skills that I can use outside of school. I’ve also been able to work with Rushy Meadow Primary School to design a game for children with special needs

Maisie joined UTC to help strengthen her skills in Maths and English.

She said: “I didn’t actually come to UTC specifically for the Computing specialism, I came to improve my Maths and English, the specialism was just an added bonus.”

She added: “I’ve really enjoyed Computing, I wasn’t sure if I would in the beginning. I’ve learnt new skills that I can use outside of school. I’ve also been able to work with Rushy Meadow Primary School to design a game for children with special needs.”

Maisie completed 8 GCSEs and a Level 2 diploma in ICT, achieving grade 8s (equivalent to a high A/low A*) in English Language and English Literature and a grade 7 (equivalent to an A) in Maths.

She said: “I did really well. I’m most pleased with English Literature as I wasn’t sure how I’d done and I’m planning to do that at A Level.

Maisie is now leaving UTC to continue her studies at All Saints Sixth Form, where she will be taking A Levels in English Literature, Maths, Business and History.
