Hundred per cent A-Level pass rate for Edmonton's Aylward Academy
An Edmonton academy has achieved an impressive 100 per cent A-level pass rate for the second year running.
More than half - 51 per cent - of the 25 Year 13 students at Aylward Academy, in Windmill Road, received grades between A* and B.
Among the success stories is student Mahdi Taani, who will study physics at Queen Mary University after achieving three B grades in maths, biology and physics.
Fartun Abdi received an A in sociology, a B in psychology and a distinction* in Btec ICT, granting her a place to study primary education at the University of Hertfordshire.
The principal, Jonathan Gillard, said: “I am delighted that so many students have obtained their target grades, particularly at a time when competition for both university, employment, and training is so fierce. Congratulations to students and staff.”
The academy opened two years ago with student numbers expanding from 88 to 320 this coming academic year.
