V6 Sixth Form is celebrating a fantastic set of A-level results, with many exceptional individual performances. 22% of all grades were A/A*, with an overall average A-level grade of B-.
Maths and Fine Art scored particularly well, with 19% of Maths students and every Fine Art student gaining an A*. A further eight subjects saw students achieving grades between A* and B.
Outstanding individual achievements include: Meghna Vaja (A*AAA*) who will read Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London; Natasha Rigby (A*A*A) who will read Psychology at University College London; Eva Hennell (A*AA) who will read Philosophy and Mathematics at the University of Edinburgh; Ahlam Aboukar (AAA) who will read Medicine at the University of Bristol; also at the University of Bristol, Olawande Delano (AAA) will read Law; Priya Ubhi (AAA) will read Medicine at the University of Birmingham; and Iva Prestwich (AAAB) will read Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh.
After a gap year travelling abroad to enhance her foreign languages, Naomi Richter (A*A*AA*) is joining her twin sister Chantelle at Oxford University where she will read French and Arabic.
Rachel Millard (ABC) will begin an apprenticeship at Lyons Davidson legal firm with the intention of completing the Chartered Legal Executive Level 6 apprenticeship programme.
Naimo Abdullah who collected her results with her father Tahlil Abdullah, has come through the Bristol Scholars Scheme which provides students with study and revision mentoring at the University of Bristol. Naimo said:
I’m delighted with my results and can’t wait to start my degree at the University of Bristol, where I will read Psychology.
My teachers throughout CGS and V6 have been so supportive and have always encouraged me to aim high and to never give up.
Tahlil Abdullah said:
We are so proud of Naimo. She’s worked really hard and has made the most of every opportunity given to her. She is the first member of our family to go to university and is a true inspiration to her six younger siblings who now have big shoes to fill!
Eva Hennell, who will read Maths and Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh said: “The excitement is overwhelming! There have been many tears in the run up to today, even my Dad has cried with me in anticipation of collecting my results. Thankfully, these are now tears of joy! Scotland is the furthest I have ever been from home, but I’m so excited to start my degree. I love learning and meeting new people, but right now I’m going to enjoy celebrating with my family!”
The new Head of Sixth Form, Caroline McClean, said: “It is fantastic to see the hard work and talent of our students, who have been supported by our superb teaching team, rewarded by these outstanding results. I am incredibly impressed by the exceptional individual achievements of those with perfect A/A*s, but equally proud of those students who have made considerable progress in the Sixth Form, for example, one of our Bristol Scholars, Amina Jimale, who achieved A*AC will now read Psychology at the University of Bristol. Well done to everyone.”
Acting Principal, Kerry McCullagh, added: “We are very proud of the academic success of this cohort of students. They have contributed so much to the school and have all been excellent ambassadors for our Sixth Form, V6. I have no doubt that they will go on to achieve great things and will make considerable contributions to their communities. Congratulations to all our students and best wishes for the future.”
