A Level Success Stories

Some individual success stories

There are many individual stories amongst all the wonderful OLCHS students that took their A Levels this summer.  All students who achieve A Levels have had to work incredibly hard and dedicate themselves to their studies.  The pressure to achieve is incredibly high and the media commentary is often about the highest grades and debates about how easy or hard these courses are.  But we must remember that for our students the only thing that matters is did they achieve and do they have a university place… and the answer is yes!  So congratulations to all! As a school we are incredibly proud of them all and wish them the very best in the future.  Here are some of these success stories:

  • Abisola Ipaye managed to surprise even herself by achieving A*AAB and her next step is to study Medicine at Plymouth University.

  • Sephora Mulema showed her tenacity and ability by achieving AAB and will be studying Sociology at the University of Bath.

  • Betty Opong Kusi, who was one of our School Vice-Captains, proved that she is a real leading learner by achieving AAB and is going onto Birmingham University to study Policy, Politics and Economics.

  • Twin sisters Taiwo and Kehinde Oyebola have both achieved AAB!  Taiwo Oyebola, who took her A Levels with a damaged writing hand - all strapped up during the examinations - is taking her place at Oxford University to study Classics.  Kehinde is off to The University of Nottingham to study History with Contemporary Chinese Studies.

  • Kaitlin Joseph, our other School Vice-Captain, also lead from the front by achieving AAB and is going to Birmingham University to Study Geography and Economics.

  • Stephanie Andrade achieved a wonderful set of results with AACD and is now off to study Criminology at City University

  • Umar Mohamed joined OLCHS at Sixth Form from Mossbourne Community Academy and he has made excellent use of his time with us.  He is off to City University to join the Business Computing Systems course.  He gained BBC at A Level.

  • Advanced level Health and Social Care is a very successful course at OLCHS and these three students gained a triple Distinction* (equivalent to A* A Level): Abigail Kwame-Osei is going to the University of Portsmouth studying Nursing, Susan Omope (also an accomplished sportswoman), will be studying Diagnostic Radiography and Imaging at Cardiff University and Ruvimbo Chitongo, who joined OLCHS for Sixth Form will be studying Midwifery at Keele University.
