Where after
On leaving school, Gemma completed a year of A levels at a neighbouring sixth-form college. Her end of year assessment grades were really disappointing, due to the lack of support she received. She restarted her A levels at St John Rigby, where she was able to reach her full potential, leading to the opportunity to study Medicine at the University of Cambridge. Gemma is currently in her second year, training to become a Doctor.
“Never give up – I am so grateful to the science department at St John Rigby College for setting the foundations for my future career as a doctor.”
If you are a former student of St John Rigby College, we want to hear from you!

We’ve partnered with the national education charity Future First, who specialise in helping colleges like ours to stay connected with their former students.
