Congratulations to our Year 13 cohort and well done to all staff who contributed to their success. Stand-out students included Lydia who gained two As and two Bs in her A-levels and is off to the University of Birmingham to study arts and natural sciences. Meanwhile, Moreniké gained an A* in geography, A in classics and B in politics and is off to the University of Bristol to study politics and international relations. She hopes to work in international development and is taking a gap year to travel to South America. Among the vocational qualification successes was Judith who gained distinctions in her health and social care extended diploma and is off to the University of Nottingham to study midwifery.
Year 11 results continue to buck the national trend
Well done to everyone for an excellent set of GCSE and BTEC results too. In a year when national newspapers bemoan a fall in results, at LSU 74% of all grades were at or above grade 4 and 25% of all grades at 7 or above. Top performer Lewhat will go on to study Music A level as well as two other subjects, hoping to go on to a conservatoire and eventually compose music professionally. Louise-Ann also achieved top grades and will study Computer Science, Maths and English or Religious Studies, and hopes to go into software design whilst also pursuing her passion for the spoken word (Louise-Ann is a member of our award-winning Debating Society).
Zeynab will go on to study the three sciences at LaSWAP and will one day become a neuroscientist and Liliana enrolled for A level sciences and psychology at LaSWAP with the aim of studying science at university. There were also top grades across the board for Zarin who will read politics at university after her A levels and is determined to stand for election as Prime Minister! Meanwhile Anna is excited to be continuing her studies at LSU following an excellent set of GCSE results. Anna will study Computer Science, English Literature and Maths in our consortium (LaSWAP) and plans to go on to read Computer Science at university.
Testament to our STEM programme, Anneliese achieved great GCSEs and will study A levels in physics, maths and geography at LaSWAP. She aims to study aeronautical engineering at university, a course we have plenty of experience preparing students for!
