Praise for the Sixth Form at The Quest Academy
Mohamed Iman graduated from Quest6 in 2016 and is now studying History at Oxford University.
Mohamed says, “From the teachers to the students, there is a family atmosphere that is perfect for nurturing your child through their formative years. Every teacher strives to bring the best out of each and every student. I know that I would not have achieved success at A Level or even received/met my offer to study History at Oxford University if I had been anywhere else. The Quest Academy has shaped me into the person I am today and I would not for one moment change one second of the last seven years. Sending your child to the Quest Academy for their formative years will lead to them developing into well rounded and valuable members of society.
Muhamad Muhamad graduated from Quest6 in 2016 with an A*s in English and RE and a B in Economics. He is now studying at University College London (UCL).
Muhamad says, “Quest was the epitome of a rollercoaster, from its ups and downs to its smiles and screams! Indeed, A Levels were the most stressful of times, but also most captivating in terms of the knowledge gained as well as the skills honed. The teachers served as exemplary models for us to enter higher education and their constant voluntary help is something I was certain to not find elsewhere. Our Head of Sixth Form was the most supportive, not only with the many times of necessary motivation but also when encouraging us to achieve a certain goal and making it clear how this was possible. If I could relive my A Level experiences again in Quest, I would surely do so.”
Maira graduated from Quest6 in 2016 and is now studying Business and Law at Bournemouth University.
Maira says, “Firstly, I would like to thank all the teachers and staff for all the help that I have received towards my GCSEs, A-Levels and University application. It would not have been possible without their help and expectations towards me. One of the most essential things that Quest has taught me is not to give up because there’s always a second chance to prove yourself and to meet your very own highest expectations.”
Croydon student, René Andersen was Head Girl at The Quest Academy in her final year of Sixth Form in Croydon. She did extremely well in her A Levels achieving an A* in Philosophy, an A in Sociology and a C in English Literature. She is now studying for a Joint Honours in Sociology and Philosophy at the University of Essex.
René says, “At Quest we had great contact with the tutors since it’s quite a small Sixth Form. Its size means the tutors get to know you better and because of that, they know how to get the best from you. Quest6 has a homely feel to it and I really enjoyed my time there.”
Tadi Mungate took Maths, Economics and Chemistry at A Level in Quest’s Sixth Form, and achieved two As and a C. He also took AS Level Physics. He is now at Queen Mary University, studying mathematics, with a view to working as a computer programmer or in finance.
Tadi says, “I chose Quest6 as I already knew the students and teachers and knew I’d get lots of support. I didn’t want to feel like ‘just another number’. It was hard work, but I received lots of help too including introducing me to The Social Mobility Foundation and EPQs. They also offered after-college sessions and Easter holiday sessions. There were lots of opportunities. My Student Co-ordinator was well-connected, which meant they were able to find me valuable work-experience.”
Yusuf Sharif graduated Quest6 in 2014 with a Distinction in BTec Science. He is now reading Sociology at Kingston University, and hopes to go on to study further for a Masters in Sociology and perhaps a PhD.
He says, “Quest was always a welcoming environment. I found the science staff really helpful and supportive. I always felt able to go to them if I had any issues.”
