Runshaw Praises Students

Runshaw College conducted their annual formal interviews for Year 11 students at Albany Academy. The successful college, based in Leyland, were once again blown away by the students preparation, attitude and commitment to their studies.

The students attended interviews with Runshaw to apply for places on various courses and had to provide evidence in their record of achievement and personal statements to justify a formal offer. James Bearwood, School Liaison and Admission tutor at Runshaw College, said “It was lovely to meet such well rounded and prepared students. Their personal statements were amazing and amongst some of the best I have ever seen. The preparation that has gone into the record of achievement folders is fantastic. Most important of all they showed superb social skills, were all very pleasant and universally polite. They were a credit to themselves and the school.”

Shirley Walmsley, Careers Co-ordinator at Albany Academy, said “ The interview process was a huge success. I was delighted to hear the extremely positive comments about our students from the Runshaw staff. Albany Academy was the first school in Lancashire to adopt the UCAS online application system, which means our students are well prepared not just for college but also for future university applications.”

Year 11 student, Katy Wiles, was delighted to receive a formal offer from Runshaw College. Katy said, “I am applying for A-Level courses in 3D Design, Physics and Maths and was really happy with how the interview went. I felt confident before I went in as I knew we had all done our preparation for this interview. I can now focus on my GCSE exams and look forward to the future.”
