OUTSTANDING A LEVEL RESULTS AT ARK BOLINGBROKE ACADEMY SEE STUDENTS GAINING PLACES AT TOP RUSSELL GROUP UNIVERSITIES

Last Updated on : 15th August 2019

A Battersea school is celebrating its very first set of A level results, outstripping the national average in every subject with students gaining places at a number of prestigious Russell Group universities, including Cambridge, LSE and Kings College. 

Academy student Theo Rooney who gained an A* in Maths and Physics and an A in Geography has been offered a place at Downing  College Cambridge to read Geography. “Obviously I’m delighted but It hasn’t really sunk in yet,” he said. “I couldn’t really sleep last night and was awake from 6am.”

Joe Barker is another Bolingbroke student who put in a stellar performance, gaining A*’s in Maths, Physics, Geography and an A in Further Maths. He is now heading to LSE this autumn to study Economics. “I’m speechless’” he said. “It is the most amazing feeling as I wanted to get into LSE so badly. It’s one of the most competitive universities to get into, so I’m really looking forward to starting.”

Salma Awale is also celebrating getting into the first university of her choice, and will be taking up a place at Kings College in London to study medicine after gaining an A in Maths, Bs in Chemistry and Biology and a C in Further Maths. “I kept refreshing the UCAS site from first thing this morning but it kept crashing,” she said. “When I finally found out I’d been offered a place at Kings I screamed with excitement and then burst into tears as I’ve wanted to study medicine since I was in year 6, and can’t wait to get started.” 

Meanwhile, fellow student Antoinette Simon, who achieved a A* in Maths, and A’s in both Biology and Chemistry is on track to read Veterinary Medicine at either Cambridge or the Royal Veterinary College in London. “Cambridge wanted an A* in Chemistry, and I got an A* in Maths, so I’m waiting to hear whether they will still offer me a place. If not I will study at the Royal Veterinary College, which will also be fantastic.”   

These outstanding results gained by Bolingbroke, which was only established in 2012, have outstripped the national average in every subject, with 93% of students gaining an A* to C pass in English Literature compared to the national average of 77%; while in history 91% of Bolingbroke students gained an A* to C pass compared to the national average of 85%.

In Geography, every Bolingbroke student gained an A* to C grade, compared to the national average of 78%, while similarly in French, 100% of Bolingbroke students were awarded an A* to C pass compared to the national average of 81%. Meanwhile 85% of Bolingbroke’s psychology students gained an A* to C pass, compared to the national average of 71%. 

The results were equally impressive in Applied Science, where 27% of Bolingbroke students gained 3 X D* compared to the national average of 3.1%. Meanwhile nearly three quarters (73%) of Bolingbroke students gained DDM (Distinction, Distinction Merit) compared to the average of 48%, while 100% of Bolingbroke students were awarded MMM (Merit, Merit, Merit) as opposed to the national average of 75%. 

Bolingbroke’s Principal Claire Edis said: “It is fantastic to see our first cohort of students see their hard work and determination pay off on results day. The high expectations we hold for every student has helped them secure some great results enabling them to go onto the university or career of their choice.”
