Talented students who are looking to focus on careers linked to photography have secured top university places.
Amie Oldland, Emily Saunders and Faye Robinson – all A-Level Photography students at Priestley – are heading to top institutions across the country.
Emily Jones received an offer to take Fashion Image Making and Styling at the University of Salford. The former Kings Academy pupil has also been highly commended in two categories of the London Met BA Photography Competition 2023 ‘Your People, Your Places, Your Things’.
“I’ve always liked creative subjects and wanted to find a course that combines fashion and photography,” said Emily.
Faye discovered her love of photography at Priestley where she has also studied Production Arts. The former Great Sankey High pupil hopes to pursue a career in concert photography.
Priestley’s wide variety of courses has allowed the students to combine photography with other passions and opened their eyes to the options ahead of them.
Former Lymm High pupil Aimee is now heading to Leeds Arts University for a BA Hons in Fashion Photography.
“I love thinking of the ideas for shots and then the editing of the photos afterwards,” she said.
All the students have created some exceptional coursework, which helped them secure their places at university.
Also heading off to study a BA Hons in Photography is Emily Saunders who will spend the next few years at University of Sunderland.
“I’ve been taking photos since I was younger when I used to go round with my dad’s camera,” said Emily, a former Lymm High pupil. “I love capturing different moments with my family and being creative.”
The students’ A-Level Photography teacher Gemma Beech said: “It’s very pleasing to know the course has helped secure the direction in life they would like to take.”
