Haringey Sixth Form Centre, in Tottenham, celebrate 98 per cent pass rate
Students and staff at a sixth form centre in Tottenham were full of glee as they celebrated a 98 per cent A Level pass rate today.
The Haringey Sixth Form Centre, in White Hart Lane, was in high spirits as the majority of young people got the results they hoped for.
Melanie Nyamaah, from Chingford, managed to achieve two As and a C which secured her a place at the University of Sussex, in Brighton, to study Psychology.
The 18-year-old hopes to become a clinical physiologist and said: “I’m still in shock and I can’t believe that I’ve actually done it.
“It was a lot of hard work and I cried before I went into my sociology exam because I thought I was going to fail it.
“But actually that was the one I did the best in – I got 79 out of 80.”
Ashley Ozor got an A and two Bs in Maths, Physics and Chemistry and was accepted onto a mechanical engineering course at the University of Warwick.
The 19-year-old from Enfield spoke of the stress of waiting to get his results.
He said: “I’m so happy and so relieved because I was so nervous that I hardly slept last night.
“For weeks now I have been stressing a lot and this morning I woke up at 6.45am and logged on the UCAS website – they had offered me a place.
“I feel amazing and this is a stepping stone to bigger and better things.”
However not everyone had their heart set on going to university.
Aspiring actor Serina Iannuccilli got a triple distinction in BTEC Performing Arts and plans to take a gap year before going on to drama school at Mount View Academy, in Wood Green.
She said: “I want to get some more life experience before committing myself to three more years of education.
“I want to make some money so I can go travelling – hopefully to New York or South Africa.”
The Principal of the Sixth Form Centre, June Jarrett, said she was proud of all the students and what they had achieved.
She said: “I wish all the students the very best of luck and I have no doubt that they will all be very successful.
“We are really pleased with how the young people did and all their results were good so there were no real surprises.”
In other parts of the borough, Hornsey School for Girls, in Crouch End, had a 100 per cent pass rate at A2 level, with 84 per cent students securing A* to C grades and more than half securing A* to B grades.
Highgate Wood School celebrated its best A Level results ever with a 100 per cent pass rate, 83 per cent of students getting A* to C grades and 55 per cent of getting A* to B.
