Former BACA student heading for Cambridge

Brighton Aldridge Community Academy Principal Bob Speight has congratulated former BACA student Amanda Kangai on achieving a place at Cambridge University with 2 A*s and 2 A grades in today’s A-Level results.

Amanda, who has accepted an offer to study Engineering at Gonville & Caius College, gained 13 higher grades at GCSE at BACA before going on study Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics and Further Mathematics A-Levels at BHASVIC.

Amanda said: “Cambridge is the top UK university for Engineering and with the support of the teaching staff from BACA and BHASVIC I was confident that I could make a competitive application. I will always be grateful to all the teachers at BACA for the support and encouragement! BACA definitely gave me the best 5 years I could ever possibly ask or wish for.”

Principal Bob Speight said: “It’s one of the great privileges as a school leader to see your students enter university education. Whether through our own sixth-form or building on GCSE success to study at BHASVIC, as Amanda has done, we are proud of the achievements of all BACA students. What Amanda has achieved is beyond exceptional.”
