Students at The Quest Academy have achieved a 100% pass rate at A Level with 55% of all grades at A* to B and 32% at A* and A. This represents a 10% increase in A level grades at the A*-C level, and a 19% increase of grades at the highest level.
Mohamed Iman has achieved A* (English), A (Economics), A (History) and B (Maths) and will go on to study History at Oxford University (Somerville College). Mohamed said, “I want to thank everyone at The Quest Academy. The school has really made me who I am today. My lessons with Ms Zaufal and other teachers alongside Mr Russell and Ms Bennet’s excellent advice on my Oxford application, have shown that behind every success story is a group of unsung heroes. My acceptance to Oxford is as much a success of the school as it is mine.”
Gloria Lasisi, Quest’s Head Girl, has achieved A* (History), A* (RE) and A (Economics) and will go on to read History at Durham University. Gloria said, “A huge thanks is in order for every individual at The Quest Academy who helped me to achieve these results. Whether it be the students who pushed me to do the best I can, or the staff who guided me with their support, I am enormously grateful for all involved. Mr Russell’s guidance most especially helped me through the year as without his advice, I would not be able to say for certain that I’d be where I am today.”
Larry Hammer, Quest’s Head Boy achieved A (Maths), A (Chemistry) and B (Biology) and has won a place at Imperial College. Muhamad Muhamad achieved A* (English), A* (RE) and B (Economics) and has won a place at University College London (UCL).
AS students also performed well with a 1/3 of all Year 12 grades at A or B, representing a 9% increase on last year.
Andy Crofts, Principal at The Quest Academy said, “This year’s results are quite remarkable with a 100% pass rate for the second year running and over half of all grades at grade B or better and nearly a third an A or A*! We’re absolutely thrilled for all of the students including Mohamed who goes to read History at Oxford and we thank the staff, students and parents for what they’ve done to create this incredible success!”
Mrs Martin, Executive Principal of the Quest Academy and Headteacher at Coloma Convent Girls’ School, sponsor of the Academy, said, “Every year, we see Quest’s Sixth Form results improving. It is such a pleasure to see that the standards at Coloma, which has long been recognised as one of the UK’s best comprehensive schools, being replicated at Quest. I congratulate each student on their results and thank every member of staff for their support.”
