A Levels: Holy Trinity’s deputy head boy is aspiring nuclear physicist


Holy Trinity’s deputy head boy and aspiring nuclear physicist has celebrated his A Level success.

Jamie Keeley, 18, got A* in Mathematics and As in Physics and Chemistry A Levels and his Extended Project Qualification (EPQ).

Jamie, of Brantridge, Furnace Green, found out he was accepted on his four-year physics course at the University of Birmingham yesterday (August 13).

He said: “I was just ready to know.

“I was really sure I had don enough to get in because I found my exams quite reassuring.

“I was really happy to get it confirmed.”

He spoke of his passion for his nuclear physics.

He wrote a report for his EPQ about the future of nuclear fusion for electricity generation in the UK.

Jamie believed the country would open commercial nuclear fusion power stations in 50 years’ time.

He added: “I’m split between two paths - research into nuclear fusion or go into specialised stuff like coding and going into the maths side, maybe finance.”
