Newham Collegiate celebrates 100% A-Level pass rate

Students at Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre have once again achieved exceptional A-Level results today (16/08).

Sixth formers at the Barking Road college achieved an impressive 99% A*- C grades and 90% received A*-B grades.

Newham Collegiate is the academic A-Level centre for a group of Newham schools including Cumberland, Kingsford, Lister, Little Ilford, Plashet, Rokeby, Royal Docks, Sarah Bonnell and Stratford School Academy. It also takes students from other secondary schools in the borough and surrounding areas.

Newham Collegiate Principal Mouhssin Ismail said:

“The Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre was set up to provide exceptional A-Level education for students in east London so they could compete with the brightest and the best in the country.

“These outstanding results mean our students are now able to study at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK and abroad and I would like to congratulate them on this fantastic achievement.

“I would also like to thank my dedicated and committed staff who work tirelessly throughout the year to support our students realise their potential. Without them the outstanding educational provision we provide would not be possible.”

Newham Collegiate Sixth Form Centre is part of the City of London Academies Trust, which runs the City of London Corporation’s sole sponsored academies.

Andrew McMurtrie, Chair of the City of London Academies Trust, said:

“Congratulations to all the students for achieving outstanding A-Level results.

“We know that a lot of hard work and dedication goes into preparing for these exams and we’re proud of everything that all the students have achieved.

“We wish each and every student all the very best in the next stage of their lives.”

In 2017, Sutton Trust named the City Corporation as the UK’s best academy sponsor for empowering pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds to perform above the national average, and the leading academy sponsor for Progress 8 and Attainment 8, which track pupil progress and achievement.
