Sixth Form Results 2019
At The Elmgreen School we are always proud of our young people as they collect their A Level and BTEC results and prepare for the next stage of their life. Our results are as strong as ever and we remain very proud, not only of the individual success stories but of the way that our young people are now prepared for the next phase of their development.
Matthew Day is our highest performing student this year. Having studied four A Levels, Matthew achieved three A*’s in A Level Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths and an A grade in A Level History. He is going on to study Medicine at University of Manchester. Vlad Popescu achieved an impressive set of results with two A* grades in History and Biology and an A in Chemistry.

Our Year 13 twins, Alison and David Cando-Avila joined the sixth form on our Level 2 pathway having just arrived in the country from Ecuador. We are immensely proud of both students who achieved excellent A Level and BTEC results, as they spoke practically no English on arrival. After both achieving pass grades in GSCE English, Alison achieved an A in Spanish, C in Media Studies and a Distinction in BTEC Business. Alison is holding an offer from Northumbria University to study Fashion Marketing. David achieved C in Design Technology, B in Spanish and a Merit in ICT and will be going on to study Architecture at Nottingham Trent University. It just goes to show what hard work and determination will get you. A fantastic achievement.
At The Elmgreen School, and thankfully now in wider society, we attach equal weight to our vocational qualifications and the following students have done exceptionally well in their BTEC courses. Safia Abdullah achieved a Distinction* in BTEC Business, Brandon Braybrook and David Ibrahim both achieved Distinctions in BTEC ICT and Britney Arnold achieved a Distinction in Health and Social Care. Klaudia Hoffman achieved an A* in Polish and two Merit grades in BTEC Sport.
The above students, indeed all of the students in the Sixth Form, should be very proud of themselves. I’m sure you will join with me and the staff in congratulating everybody, not just here but at all of our SL6 schools and indeed across Lambeth. Whether it’s university, apprenticeships or the workplace and whether our young people have been with us for seven years or two we hope they all take The Elmgreen Way with them and have a fantastic time in whatever they do next.
