BioMed family achieve triple success

The Sims family is proud to be celebrating success after news that the youngest member is off to study Medicine at University.

Dan Sims, a recent St Brendan’s graduate, achieved an impressive A*, A*, A in his A-levels and is looking forward to studying Medicine at the University of Sheffield after a gap year this year. These results are especially superb for the Sims family, as Dan becomes the third sibling to pursue a BioMed career.

Jack, Laura and Dan Sims have all enjoyed a Post-16 education at St Brendan’s and all three have embarked upon careers within the medical field. Jack Sims, the eldest of the three, went on to the University of Liverpool to study Medicine, whilst sister Laura Sims left St Brendan’s after completing her A-levels to study Microbiology at the University of Leeds.

In a recent email to the College, Mrs Sims said, “A huge thank you to St Brendan’s for providing our three children with such an amazing education and start to their future careers.”
