It was a long wait for this year’s A-Level students after exams were again cancelled and teacher assessment was used to determine students’ grades.
Haverstock is hugely proud of the class of 2021, with 41% gaining places at the elite Russell Group universities, up from 8% two years ago and 53% of all grades awarded A*-B, up from 13% two years ago and 80% A*-C, up from 44% two years ago.
Of particular note were the achievements of Abigail Silva-Matthews who will study English at Bristol after achieving A*A*A, Shuhana Begum who will study Marketing and Management at Queen Mary’s after achieving the highest grades possible (A*, Distinction*Distinction*) and Ervin Hajdarmata who successfully gained a place at Manchester to study Architecture after achieving Distinction*A*A.
Mr Hadley, Headteacher said: “Our Year 13 students have shown incredible resilience and determination and have succeeded despite facing more disruption than any group of young people since World War 2. Their achievements are extraordinary and we are hugely grateful to our wonderful teachers who have worked tirelessly to support them”
Ms Metselaar, Head of Sixth Form, who has masterminded the transformation of the Haverstock Sixth Form over the last two years, added: “Our incredible students have shown true grit and remarkable dedication. In just two years, our Sixth Form is now a place where we can proudly say that we have the highest of expectations of our students knowing confidently that this, combined with exceptional teaching, will propel students to any destination that they wish to aim for”
