“Be the best you can” is the Skinners’ Academy motto – and the school’s headteacher believes this has been personified by the number of sixth form students who exceeded their expectations in their A-level results.
Highlights from the second cohort of the new sixth form students include 74per cent of candidates achieving above their target grades and 24 subjects being passed by all students.
Star performers include nine business BTEC students gaining the highest possible qualification – triple Distinction*.
The line-up is Owura Addai; Victor Dos Santos; Gokay Emre; Kevin Heredia Arango; Reinako Jones; Leonardo Reis; Anil Sasmaz; Sumayyah Shafi; and Emanoelle Volpato. Their destinations include Queen Mary University of London; University of Southampton and Lancaster University.
Top A-level students include Berfin Kama (AAA) and Armend Bajraktari (A*A*C) who will be studying economics with philosophy at the University of Leeds and architecture at Oxford Brookes, respectively.
