Twycross House Presentation Evening


At our annual A level and GCSE presentation evening we welcomed back ex pupil Natasha Banks. Natasha left Twycross House in 2006 with A-levels in English Literature, German and Biology and an AS-level in History. 

She went on to study English Literature with Drama at Loughborough University and it was here that she discovered her passion for directing and producing films. Using the practical skills she gained at Loughborough, she was accepted on an internship at the BBC and worked on one of Britain’s most successful shows, Top Gear. This was the beginning of Natasha’s television career and she hasn’t looked back since. Now a producer, Natasha filmed ITV’s Ninja Warrior UK earlier this year and most recently a female empowerment series for AOL. This involved interviewing successful and inspiring British women including Emma Watson, Helen Mirren and CoppaFeel! charity founder, Kris Hallenga. This November she’s producing The National Television Awards with Dermot O’Leary for the third year running. 

Natasha praised the students’ excellent results. In 2016, 27% achieved A* in their A level examinations, 68% achieved A*/A grades, 79% achieved A*,A or B grades. Eleven students achieved all A*/A grades.

Natasha presented certificates to present pupils and we welcomed former students back from their first two months at university.
