The hard slog paid off as Drapers Academy students were delighted at their A-level results this morning.

The final-year-students at the Academy, in Settle Road, Harold Hill, achieved an overall pass rate of 95 per cent of young people achieving an A* to E grade today.

More than two-thirds of students will now be moving to university in September and head of sixth form Lee Bryant said he was proud to help young people achieve their dreams.

This included Adedolapa Alade, who secured a place at Bristol University to read cellular and molecular medicine, whilst Ruth Mensa learnt she will be studying business management at Queen Mary University of London.

Craig Bowerman, who achieved ACA, will begin work with auditing firm Deloitte in September.

Mr Bryant said: “I am delighted that so many of our students achieved the grades that they needed to secure their places at university.

“Their successes reflect both commitment to their studies and the tenacity needed in order to achieve what are innately taxing qualifications.

“The results also show that Drapers’ Academy is achieving exactly what it was established to do, that is help local students achieve their meritocratic dream.”
