Students of Jesmond Park Academy are celebrating today after overcoming all of the obstacles of the last 18 months and achieving excellent A Level and BTEC results. Despite all of the pressures and stresses of lockdown, the students have done very well indeed and can enjoy their deserved success.
This year the school, which is one of the most successful Sixth Forms in Newcastle, again delivered a brilliant set of results.
As always, a number of students have achieved truly outstanding results. Kyle Rogerson, Daniel Rivera, Greg Macleod and Clara Faraday- Smith were all awarded a full set of A* grades. Many other students achieved combinations of A* and A grades, including Katie Quinn, Fran Carrino, Ethan Sharkey, Mahmoud Khattab and Abigail Burford. At BTEC, star performers with a string of Distinctions and Distinction * grades include Shumi Choudhury, Liv Ball, Maja Guijarro and Lucy Nicol.
The students of Jesmond Park Academy are now excitedly preparing for university. Many are staying at local universities but others are getting ready to move all over the UK, including Kings College London, Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham and the London Universities. Lots of students will now be preparing for some fantastic and challenging undergraduate study: Uashar Badakhshan, Greg Macleod, Fran Carrino, Tracy Bechem are all going to study medicine; Mariya Choudhury is going to study Dental Hygiene at Newcastle; Annie Wright is going to study Fashion and Dress History at Brighton; Daniel Rivera is going to Lancaster to study Natural Sciences; Haidar Zmezm is going to study Bio Medical at Newcastle. Also off to Newcastle are Sam Mamuini for Maths and Matthew Macdonald for Journalism, whilst Liv Ball is going to do the Nursing degree at Sunderland.
These are just a few of our success stories. We are very proud of all of our Sixth Form students. They have had an incredibly difficult time in their education but have managed to continue working and learning, whilst also continuing to develop into lovely caring and thoughtful young people. They absolutely deserve their success. We wish them all the very best for the future.
