Chobham Academy celebrates another year of brilliant GCSE and A Level results

Students at Chobham Academy, which is located in the heart of the Olympic Park, are celebrating after receiving another very impressive set of GCSE and A Level results.

At GCSE, the academy saw an increase in the number of students achieving A*-C or 4 and above in English and maths – rising from 69% to 71%.

The percentage of students achieving the EBacc (A*- C or 4 and above in the core academic subjects) also rose, from 29% to 40%, against a national average in 2016 of 23%.

Notable successes included:

  • Ujan Shrestha who achieved the new  ‘super grade’ of 9 in Maths, a grade 8 in English Literature, 7 in English Language, five A*s and two As.  Ujan said: “I’m so happy that I achieved the grades I wanted. All the hard work paid off in the end!’ 
  • Alina Radzijevska received four As, four Bs, two 7s in English literature and maths and a grade 6 in English language – an outstanding achievement for a student who has only been speaking English for three years. Alina said: ‘I feel overwhelmed and don't know what to say. I'm now really looking forward to A Levels’.  
  • Enoch Kwabena Denkyirah –achieved the new ‘super grade’ of 9 in maths, two grade 8s in English literature and English language, three A*s and two As. Enoch said: ‘I’m so happy with my grades – particularly with my 9 in maths and English!’

Executive Principal of Chobham Academy, Rebecca Hickey said:

“I’m so proud of what all our students – no matter what their starting point – have achieved today. They were well prepared for the new more demanding curriculum and grading system in English and maths and today’s results are a credit to their hard work. I’d like to thank our wonderful students, parents and staff who have helped make today such a cause for celebration.”

At A Level, nearly all students secured their chosen place at university.

There were a number of success stories, including:

  • Asmaa Mahamud, who attained two As and a B in economics, Spanish and religious studies and will be reading Arabic and Islamic Studies at the University of Oxford;
  • Afsana Begum, who achieved an A* and two As and will study Politics and History at SOAS, University of London;
  • Fatima Khan, who achieved an A*, an A and a B and will study Engineering and Architectural Design at UCL;
  • Shaya Tiyana Small, who achieved an A*, an A and a B and will study Psychology at the University of Leicester;
  • Eleanor Rose Duplock, who achieved an A* and two As and will study Social Policy at LSE;
  • Serina Kaur Sanger, who achieved three As; 
  • Milda Smaizyte, who achieved two As and a B; 
  • Jerin Anisah Abddin, who achieved an A*, an A and a B. 

Students were pictured with their results in the Newham Recorder.

In total, 13.5% of grades attained by Chobham students were A*-A and 36% were A*-B. The average grade attained by students in their A levels was a C grade, and Distinction + for vocational subjects.

Rebecca Hickey, Executive Principal of Chobham Academy, said:

“We are thrilled that nearly all of our students secured their chosen place at university this year, a triumphant result given our students come from one of the most socially deprived areas in London.

“It is a fantastic accomplishment for Asmaa to have achieved an Oxford University place, and testament to her hard work and dedication. I am very proud of the quality of our students' results across a very broad range of subjects. We wish them all the very best of luck in their university careers.”
