Congratulations to our recent leavers who are off to study medicine. We are very proud of their achievements and, as is tradition, they have been to School to collect their gift of a personally engraved stethoscope to help them on their way as they begin their courses.

We send our grateful thanks to Peter Pennington OB for donating the stethoscopes for many years, a wonderful offer that has been most appreciated. Peter's involvement stemmed from wanting to encourage new medics and show his appreciation to the medical community following treatment that he had received.
This year:
John Nguyen - Newcastle University
Shivank Sharma - University of Birmingham
Toby Brown - University of Oxford
Alex Herod - University of Birmingham
and from last year Ed O'Mahoney - University College London
While at School they were also kind enough to attend an Upper Sixth Beyond the Curriculum session and answered questions and gave helpful advice to the next year of students who will soon be applying to go on to further study. They were grilled on how difficult the application process was, what were expected interview questions, and what to put in personal statements. Thank you to the leavers for giving up their time for the session that was extremely valuable. We wish them all the best in the studies and hope to see them again at School in the near future.

The School is very proud of the number of our students who pursue a medical profession, last year three of our female students received personally engraved stethoscope as they began their medical studies. The School has a dedicated Futures Team who offer very bespoke advice and guidance to prepare our Sixth Form students for Higher Education and the world of work. We also hold Futures Day to aid our students to begin the process of preparing for life after Birkenhead School.
