Drapers’ Academy pupils were lauded by the school’s headmaster for the positive results they achieved in this year’s A-levels.

An impressive 84pc of pupils at the academy in Settle Road, Harold Hill, have secured a place at university, with the remainder planning to head into the world of work.

Overall, 59pc of pupils managed A*-C grades.

Among the academy’s many success stories, Khadeeja Haider Roy achieved A*s in chemistry and maths and an A grade in Biology and Physics. Khadeeja is planning a gap year to build up her work experience, before applying to study medicine next year.

Rachel Fowobi-Imoru also managed an impressive three As and a B, and will be reading psychology at the University of Nottingham later this year.

Principal Darren Luckhurst said: “Once again I am delighted by the many examples of excellent individual performances, demonstrating the positive value added achieved by the Academy in ensuring students make significant progress.

“We have a growing and successful sixth form and throughout the year the students never fail to impress me.

“Today is justification of many months of dedicated hard work.

“These are significant achievements and demonstrate that Drapers’ Academy supports students to do their very best and realise their potential.

“I wish all our students the very best as they further their education at university or work.”
