‘Very bright futures’ are on the horizon for students at Mossbourne Community Academy after a set of A-level results which showed a particular strength for maths.

Half of the students at the academy achieved A to A* grades, while 55 per cent bagged A* to A grades.

The school announced that 98pc of students had accepted a place at university, with three students Oxbridge bound.

Farzeen Mahmood, Aleda Mackenzie-Reid and Juweiria Wardere will be studying medicine and Naimah Chowdhury will study dentistry, while Leila Bernstein – an alumni of the Mossbourne Rowing Academy – will be leaving England to study at UCLA in the United States.

Keji Neri is the first student from the school’s sixth form to be offered a place to study maths at Cambridge after achieving four A* grades.

A school spokesman said: “We would like to congratulate all students for their hard work during their time at Mossbourne Community Academy and wish them good luck for their very bright futures.”
