I have really enjoyed my studies here at Shenley Academy; it was an easy decision to stay within the Oaks at Shenley. I did my GCSEs here so the teachers know me and how I work. I like the teaching here at Shenley and I know they encourage me to be the best I can be. I am close to finishing year 13 so they have helped me achieve my GCSEs to a very high standard and also supported me through employment applications and obviously my A Level choices. Growing up at Shenley has taught me to aim high so they have helped me make decisions about working full time and still gaining qualifications.
I have always found the school to be friendly and helpful.
One advantage is that the teachers know me and support me in ways that benefit me. I have learnt how to commit myself and not give up. Different guest speakers come in, they give advice and tell you about their past experience and people they know.
The reason I like studying at Shenley is because I liked the courses they offer and liked the idea of being taught by teachers that knew me and would support me. Studying at Shenley has made me definitely get better grades than if I went somewhere else.
An advantage is the teachers here at Shenley know me and how to support me. They are all really positive and encourage me to do my best. They support you lots in tutor time helping you with applications and CVs and how to apply for an apprenticeship. Being at Shenley had really helped me decide about my future and what’s next for me.
