Exam Results 2021

We are absolutely delighted for our Year 13 students whose hard work has been rewarded with great success in their A Level studies. Our Headteacher, Mr Maidment said: “it has been a remarkable and challenging year in a great many ways. I am very pleased that Tuesday 10 August has been a really happy day with countless stories of individual success”. 

We would like to congratulate students such as Samuel Eastoe who will read History and Politics at Cambridge, Gabriella Girma who reads English Literature also at Cambridge. Deborah Acheampong who will study Theology, Danny Kuhrt History and Benjamin Thomas Geography, all at Oxford University. Majd Yousof and Natnael Dawitt will both study at Imperial College London reading Civil Engineering and Biological Science respectively. 

Chidimma Nwankwo reads Medicine and Madalena De Gouveia Magalhaes Mathematics at Kings College London, two of the nine students from Dunraven who will begin their studies there next year. Emilia Edgington will read English Literature and Erin Ramsden History both at Bristol University. Rolando Headley will be studying Politics and Sociology at Warwick University, joined by Junior Brito who will be studying Computer Science there. Mukhtar Mohamed will read Management at Loughborough University and Nathaniel Pearce History, Politics and Economics at UCL. Rosa Ironmonger commences an Arts Foundation course at the University for the Creative Arts. Mohan Stansfield will study Animation at Leeds Arts University and Senai Kabba begins her Architecture studies at the University of Liverpool. The list goes on and we are aware that it would be possible to choose a huge range of names to mention. 

While today was first and foremost about the progress of all of our students, we remain fiercely proud of our academic achievements as a comprehensive school. Given the circumstances around the cancellation of exams, it doesn’t feel quite right to list percentages and grades at this point (though they are very strong). It is absolutely clear that the collective achievement is testament to the hard work of our students, the expertise of their teachers and the consistent support from families. Thank you all. 

Our Director of Sixth, Mr Follows said, “We are absolutely delighted that our Year 13 students have done so well. On days like this, it is possible to forget that this is a group of young people who have been locked down twice during their Sixth Form studies but they have worked hard, pushed themselves and really brought something special to our Sixth Form. They leave big shoes to fill.”     

We wish our outgoing Year 13 every success as they embark on their next steps. Mr Maidment reflected: “we are frequently reminded of the need to ‘build back better’, without necessarily seeing action in support of those sentiments from our national leaders. However I really believe that the qualities demonstrated by the ‘Class of 2021’ show that we have no shortage of young people who might really make the world a better place. Year 13, we’re sad to see you go but can’t wait for the brilliant future you’re going to create.”
