A Level Results 2018Posted on: 17 Aug 2018
We are delighted for our Year 13 students who have achieved great success in their A Level studies.
Thursday 16 August was a happy day with many stories of individual success. Whilst it is always unfair to single out individuals when there are so many success stories, we would like to highlight students such as Eugene Lin, who will take a place at Imperial College London to read Mathematics securing A*,A*, A, A along the way. Also reading Mathematics is Maneil Benzineb who will study at Exeter next year. On a different note we wish Veronika Hunyak, who picked up A,A,B grades, all the very best for her prestigious apprenticeship at Sky UK. Yusuf Sanni has been awarded grades A, A, A and prepares for a career in medicine. A range of students received offers from prestigious universities including Ahmed Idris who will read Politics at York, Aicha Labi who goes to Warwick University to study History and French and Isadora Rackham, who achieved three A* grades and goes to Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge to read Human, Social and Political Science.
The list goes on and we are conscious that it would be possible to choose a huge range of names to mention.
While today was first and foremost about the students, we remain as a school very proud of our academic achievements with 76% of all grades at A*-C.
These are strong results, and are testament to the extremely hard work of students, their teachers and ongoing support from families.
Our Director of Sixth, Mr Follows said, ‘Students have worked extremely hard over the last two years and I am very proud of the success that they are enjoying today. They have been an absolute delight and their commitment is an example to all our future students.’
There are also many success stories for subjects such as Mathematics and Spanish who had significant proportions of students achieving the very highest grades. Strong pass rates can be found across the curriculum with subjects such as English Literature, French, Government and Politics, Sociology and BTEC Sports Science all achieving impressive results.
We wish our outgoing Year 13 nothing but happiness and success as they embark on their next steps into adult life. We are rightly proud of their academic achievements but also the way in which they applied themselves to culture, performance, politics and social action. We won’t try and hide our sadness that they are leaving but are very pleased with their future destinations.
