Shahan, Adrian, Tahmid and Mariam celebrate their As

Central Foundation Boys’ School students are celebrating some outstanding results in their A levels. The pass rate at A level was 100%, with 50% of those grades at either A or B grade.

Despite a national decline in top grades awarded the school has seen a very significant increase in students achieving top grades with 23% of all grades being either A or A*.

The results of the students illustrate the very strong performance across the traditional subjects favoured by universities. The students performed particularly strongly in the ‘harder’ subjects favoured by universities especially the Sciences and Maths. In Maths A level 50% of the grades achieved by the students were either A or A*.

A number of students are off to top universities including Russell Group Universities. These include the following students who all met their offer for their chosen university.

Tahmid Chowdhury achieved 3 A grades and will be studying Law at New College. As well as working to achieve these excellent grades Tahmid wrote and directed two plays during the year, one that was performed in the West End. He is standing as a prospective Islington councillor at the next local elections. New College is a university that was set up two years ago by a group of top academics to rival Oxford and Cambridge, last year only 12 state school students managed to secure a place.

 

The environment is really special, all the staff here are really amazing but I think the students make the school a special place and I think that’s going to carry on.
- Tahmid

Adrian Hracki achieved an A*, A and a B grade and will be studying Pharmacology at UCL.

I couldn’t have asked for better teachers. I’d like to thank everyone at Central Foundation for giving me the opportunity to study here and for all the extra-curriculur activities: science club, student council, school plays and the library.
- Adrian

Mohammed Hussan achieved an A*, A and a A grade and will be studying Civil Engineering at Durham University.

Tahmid Islam achieved 2 As and a B grade and will be studying Economics and Politics at Queen Mary College.

Mariam Mahmoud achieved 2 As and a B and will be studying Maths at Queen Mary College.

Raizan Kasham achieved an A* and 2 Bs and will be studying Maths at Queen Mary College.

Shahan Lake achieved 2 As and a B and will be studying Economics at York University. He has deferred his place to take up the ING Group on their offer of an internship for the Dutch multinational bank.

The teachers here are very supportive, I think more than they would be at a college. I found my A levels challenging and enjoyed them.
- Shahan

Salman Rahman achieved an A and 2 Bs and will be studying Biomedical Science at St George Medical School.

Alamin and Salman both attained their desired university courses

The students who followed a vocational course in the Sixth Form were equally successful. The pass rate on these courses was 100%. Many of the students completing these vocational courses go onto university. Nooruzzaman Chowdhury achieved the highest grades possible, three distinctions, on his BTEC Business Course and will be studying Global Financial Management at Regent’s University.

100% of Central Foundation students achieved passing grades in all their subjects

The School has experienced a significant increase in the number of students achieving places at the top universities. The A level students were supported throughout their A levels by being part of the ‘Key Project’. This project is a partnership between the school, the international law firm, Slaughter and May, and the charity, Access. The students are provided with individual tutors for their subjects and are supported in the application process for university.

In line with the national trend a number of students have decided to take up apprenticeships after Sixth Form study rather than go onto university. The School runs a programme called ‘Central Futures’ that supports these students to find high quality employment and training. Connor Gardner, who achieved three distinctions in his IT BTEC has secured an apprenticeship through the Tech City Stars apprenticeship programme. This programme provides employment and vocational training with some of the many technology firms that have set up in the last five years in the area of Old Street Roundabout.
