A Special Day Celebrating Our Students’ Achievements
The UCL Academy is celebrating its Year 13 students’ achievements, following the publication of A Level results today. The results achieved by the current cohort are a testament to the students’ resilience and hard work, in addition to the support provided by staff, parents, carers and each other. The Academy is immensely proud of our students who are today confirming their places on a range of degree courses reflecting the Academy’s commitment to academic excellence and a broad and forward-looking curriculum.
Co-Principals Robin Street and Simon McBride said:
“Every year we welcome our students into the school to receive their grades and be with their peers and their teachers. Every year there are many wonderful achievements to celebrate, students to support and guidance to be given. This is a year group that navigated their GCSEs through the pandemic and who have studied their A levels with passion and commitment. We are so proud of the destinations everyone in this year group has secured, studying a broad range of courses at leading Universities and high-quality degree apprenticeships. Education is about giving every child a platform to move on to the next stage of their lives. We look forward to hearing more in the future about the class of 2023 and welcoming them back as the role models they have become to the next generation of UCL Academy students.”
As always, we are delighted with the performance of all our students. A few notable achievements below:
Rahim, one of our Deputy Heads was thrilled to achieve his results; 2 A*’s and 1 A in Biology, Chemistry and Maths. Rahim praised the teachers who worked hard to help him reach his potential and the ‘extra mile the teachers went to offer support throughout his studies’. Rahim is very much looking forward to studying Economics at the University of Warwick.
