  • Where are they now?

    Megan Walker

    Studied: Advanced Level Financial Studies

    Megan went on to accept a place on the RSM Accounting School Leavers Apprenticeship Programme, which aims to fast-track careers in business and accounting. Her success was owed to both her exceptional grades and the opportunities she was offered whilst studying at Pendleton, including a six-week paid internship at BDO Accounting and a placement at Grant Thornton. The college was able to facilitate such prestigious work experience due to its extensive links with industry.

    Charlie Evans

    Studied: Technical Theatre

    “Studying at The Pendleton School of Theatre, I have had the opportunity to pursue a number of enrichment programmes, which have really engaged my interest in Technical Theatre. This is why I will be continuing my studies at university, in Set Design or Scene Construction.  

     Being nominated and winning the BTEC Bronze Award for Performing Arts Student of the Year, is an amazing accomplishment. It feels great to be recognised for the effort and hard work I have put in this year, but also reflects on the unyielding support of my tutors.”
