Former Chorley St Michael’s High student, Faye Bretherton is writing her own success story.

Would-be author Faye 19, achieved exceptional grades and is grateful for the help she received from her tutors. The Blackburn College A-Level student said: “I’m so happy and relieved I achieved an A in English, A in psychology and a B in English Literature.

“My tutors have been really supportive throughout my time here and I’m so glad the end result is a positive one.”

Studying on Blackburn College’s town centre campus was a logical choice for Faye, who took advantage of the college’s travel pass offer to get to and from Blackburn.

She said: “I came to Blackburn College because everyone seemed so friendly and nice, despite the fact it was out of town. I also came to an event at the college and the tutors seemed really knowledgeable and helpful.

Faye added: “I’m now going to The University of Manchester to do BA (Hons) English Literature with creative writing. My dream is to be a professional writer. I would love to be a novelist or poetry writer someday and this is what I will pursue once I graduate.”

Blackburn College is celebrating some of its best A-Level results, with the numbers of students achieving high grades increasing significantly.
