SHLA Students Celebrate Best Results for Three Years!
Sir Herbert Leon Academy students are celebrating the
best Year 11 results for three years. The number of students achieving C grades
in both English and Maths GCSE (Basics Measure) has doubled and our vocational
results have increased significantly.
Our highest performing Year 11 students were Raihaan Ali who secured 6 A*s, 3 As and 1 B grade, Cameron Sinclair who secured 2 A*, 2 As and 6 B grades, Rahima Hussain who secured 4 As, 5 Bs and 1 C grade and Dorina Csorba who gained 2 A*s, 3 As and 4 Bs. We wish all of these students great success in their Post-16 studies.
Principal, Dr Jo Trevenna, says “After a period of change and instability, Sir Herbert Leon Academy has made significant improvements this year. I am very proud of our students and staff – this is a wonderful school community. Whilst we still have a lot to do, I am delighted to say that Leon is getting back to its best.”
Post-16 students at Sir Herbert Leon Academy have secured some outstanding results this summer. The
vocational programme continues to flourish with students studying on the Level 3 BTEC Performing Arts, BTEC Media, BTEC Sport and BTEC ICT programmes achieving incredible results.
Other vocational successes include Zoe Ashe who secured a double Distinction* and Distinction in Performing Arts and Gulum Kibria who secured a triple Distinction* in ICT. These students have worked extremely hard to secure these highest possible grades.
We are also proud to say that our fledgling A level cohort have secured some excellent grades with Michal Mazur achieving an A grade in A Level Polish, Maria Giaso securing an A grade in A Level Greek, Anna Loftus securing a B in French and Sola Hamza achieving a B in Sociology. As the cohort grows, we will see more and more students achieving these top grades.
Many of our Year 13 cohort have secured places at various universities around the country. Commenting on their successes, Director of Post-16, Faye Causer, says ‘I am extremely pleased with the efforts and the commitment shown by the students. They all have bright futures ahead and I wish them the very best of luck.’
