Achieving Against the Odds

Date Posted: 15/08/2013 | Posted In: Latest news

Jodie Mitchell suffers from cystic fibrosis but this has not been a barrier to her gaining the best possible A Level results at QE.

 At QE, Jodie studied A Level Health &Social Care, Theatre Studies and Fine Art and, this year, also completed AS Levels in  General Studies and  Art & Design Critical Studies. Her illness has not stopped her from achieving and she really does deserve her success.

 Joy Colthup, Director of Enrichment, has supported Jodie during her time at College and says:

 ‘Over the last two years Jodie has often been unwell but has always been determined to continue with her studies. At times it has been very difficult, especially when she has had to miss lessons but she has always made every effort to catch up. Jodie is an exceptional individual and deserves her success. Next year she will progress on to the Art Foundation course at QE and hopes to eventually go on to university to study Fine Art.’

 Jodie adds:

 ‘At times it has been hard but I just had to get on with it. I’ve enjoyed my studies and am looking forward to starting Art Foundation ‘.
