A Level Results Day 2021

Today has been tinged with both pride and sadness as we say goodbye to a very strong year group.

The overall outstanding academic performance of the students is testament to the fantastic resolve, discipline and attitude that they have shown towards their studies despite the turmoil of the last two academic years and the numerous periods of school closure within this time frame.

The A Level results this year demonstrate excellent levels of achievement across the curriculum. The four highest attaining students achieved an incredibly impressive set of straight A* grades in four full A Level subjects:

  • India Abbott
  • Zakariya Alamin
  • Phong Ta
  • Lucy van Uem

Congratulations also to the following students who secured at least three A* grades in full A Levels:

  • Greta Bojaroviciute
  • Alex Bushell
  • Sam Campion
  • Alba Cantero
  • Malé Crofts
  • Oliver Curtis
  • Hrishikesh Dave
  • Anabelle Ellis
  • Zac Frost
  • Josh Fuller
  • Harvey Litchfield
  • Oliver Luikinga
  • Felix Machin-Bradbury
  • Emily Matcham
  • Dillan Patel
  • Thomas Perkin
  • Liam Pickering
  • Isabelle Pierson
  • Mattia Salvadori
  • Amelia Sulch

Oliver Curtis also merits well deserved mention for being the student securing the greatest amount of progress from his GCSE grades.

BTEC Rugby results are also admirable with seven students attaining the highest grade of a triple Distinction* (equivalent to three A* Grades). Many congratulations to:

  • Chukwuemeka Atuanya
  • Jacob Burns
  • Jacob Harris
  • Jed Jenkins
  • Charlie Johnson
  • Josh McBride
  • Arjun Pooni

Congratulations also to the Year 12 Further Maths and EPQ students who also sat their A Level assessments this year with an outstanding set of grades recorded in both subjects.

Other than those taking a gap year, all leaving students will be taking up a higher education place or employment post next year with many gaining places at high profile universities on incredibly competitive courses. This includes 8 current students who have secured a place for medicine / veterinary science / dentistry (Storm Burke, Lily-Anna Cobb, Harmony Hart, Mohammed Islam, Zainab Janjua, Kiyara Perera, Anna Smith, Amelia Sulch) and 3 students who will take up an Oxbridge place (Jacob Benhayoun (History), Gilbert Ressel (History) and Lucy van Uem (Maths). Four former NSB students also secured medicine / dentistry places at leading universities.

Director of Sixth Form, Sarah Bradley-Brophy reflected on the year group as ‘a group of students who had a hugely positive influence on NSB, embracing the vast range of opportunities that the school had to offer as well as operating as excellent role models for our younger students’.

We wish all our leavers the very best of luck in their future and we look forward immensely to learning about their undoubtedly rich successes in the years ahead.
