Student Success

Stuart Johnson will be starting a degree in physiotherapy this September.

The former Fairfield High School pupil has received a conditional offer from York St John University, and also has an interview for Manchester Metropolitan University.

“I am really excited for university – I can’t wait. We’ve covered the basics of physiotherapy as part of the health and social care course. The majority of people who go on to study physiotherapy at university will have come from doing science A Level and whilst it’s obviously important to have that scientific knowledge, I feel like I’ll have an advantage because I’ve got the practical and caring side – that’s important too.”
