Responding well to the challenge of having to motivate himself to work hard was the secret to 18-year-old Declan Moen’s A Level success at Northampton College.
Having come from Duston School to study Sociology, Geography and English, Declan was faced with a very different learning environment and the more laid back style has brought out the best in him.
He achieved excellent grades of ABB and has an offer to study Geography at the University of Manchester.
He said: “I really enjoyed College, it seemed to suit me really well and I responded to the challenge. I liked the people, both the students and the staff, and everyone got on well, helping each other.
“Smaller class sizes also helped, meaning we got more one-to-one attention. My results were a real surprise, I wasn’t expecting to get an A, that’s fantastic!”
