DELIGHTED students whooped and cheered as they picked up the keys to their future.
The youngsters at Havant Sixth Form College collected A level results which opened doors to careers in law, medicine, acting and even aerospace engineering.
Thomas Bullpett, 18, from Chichester, has already had a taste of being in the limelight, having worked alongside Sir Patrick Stewart in Chichester Festival Theatre’s MacBeth.
He said: ‘I would love to be an actor but I’m going to study Politics at Warwick University. It’s because they have a fantastic drama society.
‘I’m just so relieved I’ve got the results I need.’
The college’s results have gone up again with 50 per cent of students achieving A* to B grades.
Deputy principle Jayne Davis, said: ‘We’re absolutely delighted with our results this year, 97 per cent of our students who applied to university received offers.’
