I have applied to various large companies to complete a higher apprenticeship in Electrical Engineering and Data Analytics. My applications have been accepted and I am through to the second stage of the process. However, as a back-up, I have also applied via UCAS to study a degree in maths.
The teachers at Aston Manor are very supportive and teaching is of a really high standard. If you want good grades, go to Aston Manor Academy.”

ABDULLAH ALI KAISER
Abdullah is studying A-level Chemistry, Biology and Psychology and has received five conditional offers from leading universities to study pharmacy.
“Aston Manor has made me the person I am today. They have provided so many opportunities and helped me to focus on where I want to be.
While the last few years have been stressful, particularly during Covid, the teachers have been amazing. Lessons online were challenging, but the staff went above and beyond to ensure we were on track to achieve the best outcome and results.
I have just finished my GCSEs and am now starting A-levels in Biology, Chemistry and Psychology at Aston Manor Sixth Form.”
“AA Milne once said, “How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard?”. There is nothing that could better describe how I felt when I left Aston Manor Sixth Form. I think I speak for many students when I say that the guidance and encouragement we received from the sixth form team really helped us capitalise on our academic progression and professional growth, even though we were in the midst of a global pandemic. The teachers were resilient and ensured we were able to receive all the resources we required to be successful in our final exams.
The relationships I built in the sixth form are everlasting and I could not have asked for a better sixth form experience.
Through the support I received from teachers and, of course, my hard work, I was so pleased when I got my results and secured a place to study medicine at the University of Birmingham.”
“I studied the BTEC Sport Extended Diploma at Aston Manor Sixth Form. This enabled me to combine studying with my passion for sport. And I had the opportunity to compete in regional and national league football.
They really push you at Aston Manor to achieve your personal best. The support was fantastic and really helped me to prepare for life at university. I am now studying sports journalism at the University Campus of Football Business (UCFB) Etihad campus in Manchester.”
