BSix Results Day Success 2018!
Joshua Uwadiae, BSix Alumnus, founder and CEO of WEGym!
BSix students celebrate positive results and exciting progression plans with the Mayor of Hackney, Philip Glanville and star of ‘Kidulthood’, Adam Deacon!
Results day at BSix this year saw students discussing with the Mayor their career ambitions and the importance of the Skills for Londoners strategy. Students also benefited from a ground-breaking project from QA Apprenticeship organisation who hosted a Careers Clinic. This initiative was supported by BSix Alumnus Joshua Uwadiae, founder and CEO of wegym who progressed onto an apprenticeship after graduating from BSix in 2012! The College also welcomed celebrity guest Adam Deacon, actor, rapper, writer and director, who grew up in Hackney. Adam was keen to speak to students to inspire them to continue to pursue their career goals.
There was much to celebrate at BSix on A level results’ day. Although senior staff expressed disappointment that the overall pass rate did not rise this year, great satisfaction was derived from the performances of many students. The Mayor of Hackney was present to hear a range of success stories from young people delighted to have gained the grades required to progress to the university, apprenticeship or employment of their choice.
David Kasinskas achieved A*, A, A in Maths, Further Maths and Physics and plans to study Maths at university. Ernestina Hansen was thrilled with her A* in Sociology as well as B grades in Business and Economics; a true example of a resilient young woman who worked very hard throughout a personally difficult year to reach her ambitions and potential. Sedra Alsoufi achieved excellent grades to study medicine at Southampton! Sannah Punjabi and Esra Su Kurtulan were two of many exceptional BTEC results achieving Triple Distionction* and Triple Distinction respectively. They are both going to the University of Surrey to study Bio-chemistry.
Stars at AS level included Marsioleda Kemberi with straight A grades in Biology, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths and Nodi Zaman with straight A’s in Biology, Chemistry and Maths.
New Principal, Kevin Watson, is eager to build on these positives. “Our aim”, he said,“is to ensure that the kind of excellence seen this year in pockets becomes the norm across all areas of the curriculum. The tailor-made study programme, strengthened tutorial system and extended range of extra-curricular activities in place for the coming academic year will hopefully provide a springboard for still better results next summer”.
