SHLA Post-16 Students Celebrate Results

posted by John Newman   [ updated ]

With every student that applied securing their first choice course at university, Post-16 students at Sir Herbert Leon Academy have been celebrating their results. 

Students on the BTEC Pathways in Sport and Health & Social Care secured some outstanding results with top achievers including Dorcas Macanda-Siliyo who secured a double Distinction in Health & Social Care and is continuing her studies at De Montfort University studying Health and Wellbeing in Society. Dru Blackman achieved the equivalent of four A-Levels, including Distinction Merit in Sport.

Our first year of Criminology has proved a huge success with a 100% pass rate. 40% of these grades were A to B grades. Hazera Begum, Olly Ward and Afrida Rashid Etu all achieved an A grade.

SHLA’s inclusive Post-16 curriculum offers Level 2 courses which have been very successful this year. The one year Public Services course has enabled many students to continue their studies at SHLA to do either a Level 3 pathway or our brand new Animal Care or Construction course.

The second year of the SHLA partnership with MK Dons SET programme yielded many impressive results with both Taylor Brown and Luke Payne achieving a Distinction Distinction Merit. Taylor will be attending Southampton Solent University, studying Football Studies, whilst Luke will be studying Sport, Coaching and Physical Education at Plymouth Marjon University.

Commenting on the MK Dons SET results, Faye Causer, Vice Principal, says ‘The partnership work between SHLA and MK Dons SET goes from strength to strength. Students achieve impressive academic results and benefit from top class coaching and 3G astroturf facilities as well as excellent support for higher education and sporting careers.’

Other students who have achieved their first choice university places include Taylor Currant who will be reading Creative Writing and English Literature at London Metropolitan University, Michal Mazur who will be studying Computing and Data Science at the University of Bedfordshire, Antonio Riccardi will be studying Sports Therapy at University of Bedfordshire, Lewis Williams is studying Sports Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire and Joshua Ashe will be studying Sports Psychology at Buckinghamshire New University.

SHLA Leaders receive national recognition

posted 25 Apr 2018, 05:08 by John Newman   [ updated 25 Apr 2018, 05:11 ]

Three SHLA students were recently invited to the National Boccia championships at The University of Hertfordshire. Boccia is a Paralympic sport for athletes with disabilities that have a major impact on their motor skills. Boccia is a target ball sport similar in rules to bowls. Players play from a sitting position and will play i ndependently despite their disability. This invite was as a result of a successful link with Panathlon, a national charity which Panathlon is open to young disabled people between 5 and 19 and is predominately aimed at those young people with severe learning difficulties and/or physical impairments. 

The students have been highly praised for their leadership qualities both at Panathlon events and the Boccia championships held at SHLA. As a result of the success of these events and the leadership qualities shown by the students Boccia England invited 3 students, Callum Savill, Cody Aldridge and Alexis Coveney to officiate at the prestigious national championships. The students were rewarded for their efforts by spending two days as guests of Boccia England. During their stay they gained a level 1 in Boccia and officiated in the national championships. Our students were also chosen to officiate the final a great recognition of their efforts.

At the end of the event Callum Savill was voted “Young Official of the Year 2018” by the Boccia England Officials a fantastic achievement.

SHLA are very proud of our Young Leaders and their ongoing success, this recognition and award is justification of what our students can achieve.
