Joe Clarke is an exceptionally focused and hardworking student who has started his A Level course with the same excellent attitude and work ethic that resulted in his excellent success at GCSE, in which he received 3 x A* and 7 x A grades. Joe is studying A Levels in English Literature, History and Politics where he is an asset to his sessions – an insightful and perceptive student who can contribute confidently and articulately no matter what the subject, and demonstrates a well-considered, balanced and critical approach to all topics. Joe is also part of the A Level Honours Programme, as part of which he is undertaking the Extended Project Qualification – he initially explored investigating the role of the government in the creation of the Punk movement; however, a testament to Joe’s eclectic and engaging interests has seen him now move on to undertake a critical discussion into the NHS and the issues surrounding state-subsidised healthcare for conditions/illnesses deemed ‘self-inflicted’. Joe’s ultimate ambition is to progress to university – his high aspirations evidenced by his ambition to study at a university in Denmark. Joe is a passionate music fan, and enjoys going to concerts in his spare time.
