Another year of great A Level results! Congratulations to all our Year 13 students
15 August 2019
A Level Results day 2019 has brought with it huge joy and celebration for our young people and the staff and parents who have worked with and supported them. A significant number of this cohort began their journey with the Academy at the age of 4 and so this year has brought a particular sense of accomplishment and pride as they attained the greatest number of top grades the Sixth Form has ever achieved and in the process have secured themselves places at almost exclusively top tier universities.
Particular mention must go to Lucien and Liam who secured A* A* A A and A* A* A * Distinction 1 respectively. Lucien is going up to St Peter’s College, Oxford to read Physics and Liam to Clare College, Cambridge to read Asian and Middle Eastern Studies. Lucien said “I’m really grateful to the teachers here, they really always go over and beyond what’s required to help you”. There were other outstanding performances including Isabella off to do PPE at Manchester, Tommy reading Computer Science at Warwick, Kannen reading Computing, Katie reading Psychology, Shakirah off to Kings College to read Biochemistry, Malcolm studying Chemistry at Leeds, Phoebe who secured a place for Psychology at Warwick, Demelza reading Film Photography and Media at Leeds, Daniel S reading Chemical Engineering, Nicole studying Biomedical Science at Warwick and Mearig reading Mathematics with Finance and Accounting at QMUL. Ana, Lexi and Indira are all taking a gap year. All of these students achieved at least two A* or A grades.
Across the Board students have succeeded in gaining places at Russell Group and other great universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Kings College London, Imperial College, Nottingham, Warwick, Leeds, Sussex, Manchester, Liverpool, QMUL, Royal Holloway, Swansea, Sheffield and Surrey.
Academic Deputy Headteacher, John Reardon - “It’s wonderful to see individual success stories across the board and we are delighted to launch this wonderful hardworking cohort of students onto the next phase of their lives. They are not only academically successful, they are resilient, determined and charming young adults”
