A-level students at New Charter Academy have been celebrating, once again, as the sixth form achieved another excellent set of results in this summer’s examinations.
Pride of place goes to seven of the many students whose results have equipped them to move on to higher education: Dominique Smith will be heading to The University of Manchester to read Psychology, Mohammed Masood has secured further work experience in the medical sector in preparation to study Medicine at The University of Manchester, Wesley Harmer will be attending The University of Huddersfield to read Psychology, Siddra Hussain goes to the University of Huddersfield to read English Literature and Creative Writing, Gulmehar Jilani will be heading to Newcastle University to study Art, Nisha Mardania will be studying English at Liverpool University and Idreece Bashir will be studying Pharmacy at Keele University.
Gulmehar Jilani said “I’m so happy that I am going to Newcastle to study Art, it’s amazing! The teachers here don’t just teach you, they teach you about life, for which I am incredibly grateful.’
Fellow student Mohammed Masood, who also achieved fantastic results, comments, ‘All my hard work has paid off. I’m looking forward to the next step in my educational journey and I’m grateful to everyone who has helped me so far.’
Principal David Shaw was delighted with the class of 2016 who have built upon the academy’s recent successes: “I am delighted with the results the students have achieved with the support of our dedicated staff. Importantly, our students have developed the skills, qualities and now results to ensure they progress into the University of their choice. I look forward to welcoming back the class of 2016 in the near future to share their stories of further success with our younger students to inspire and motivate them.”
Helen Lister, Head of the Academy’s sixth form, was equally thrilled. She added: “I am so pleased for all of our students. 100% of the students can take up a university place if they so wish, with offers at many top universities. Our students have been amazing role models for the younger students, proving that if you want to do well and work hard enough, you can go on to study medicine, optometry, law, history, teaching, nursing, etc… Our personal approach to providing every student the support and challenge they require have ensured our students have been really successful including a good proportion achieving A*-B grades.
