A career in accountancy and finance awaits for Thomas Harbottle, who is off to study at London’s City University having secured exceptional A Level grades at Northampton College.
The 18-year-old from Milton Keynes achieved an A* in Maths, an A in Accounting and a C in Business having moved to the College from a boarding school in Somerset.
The change in environment brought out the best in him and allowed him to develop a clear career path, helping to secure a number of work placements with accountancy firms and give him experience of life in business.
He said: “The grades are exactly what I was hoping for, I’m delighted. I really enjoyed my time at Northampton College and the teachers were excellent.
“I don’t always get things first time but with my maths teacher I really did, we were very much in tune and every time they said something I just got it. I’m very grateful for all the help and support I have received.”
