Alexandra joined us from Pangbourne College and achieved D*D*D* in Engineering. She won the 'Young Female Engineer of the Future 2019' at the Oxfordshire High Sheriff Engineering Awards. Alexandra is now going on to a degree apprenticeship at Rolls Royce, which she was one of just 34 successful candidates from 32,000 applicants.
"Alexandra joined us with a obvious passion for Engineering. She enrolled onto the course and, in addition, enrolled on a Maths A Level. This meant she had effectively enrolled for the equivalent of 4 A Levels.
