St Bonaventure’s Sixth Form has once again achieved academic excellence with their
best ever set of Post-16 exam results, even higher than the last two years of teacher
assessed grades.

Headteacher, Chris McCormack said, “The jump from GCSEs to Post-16 is not an easy one,
especially whilst studying through a pandemic. But with our 6th Formers’ intense focus on
their studies and their commitment to achieving their goals, they have secured themselves a
brilliant set of results. We are so proud of them and wish them the very best of luck in their
future endeavours.”

St Bonaventure’s has achieved 33% A*-A grades, 67% A*-B grades, 90% A*-C grades,
100% A*-E grades. This places St Bonaventure’s Sixth Form in the top 10% of schools in the
country. The school has continued to build improvement year on year within the 6th Form
and these results reflect that.

Alongside our best ever Science results across all the three disciplines, Biology stood out
with 64% of students achieving A*-B, and there were outstanding results in the Humanities
including Politics with 64.3% A*-A, Religious Studies with 66.7% A*-A, and Economics with
82.4% A*-B. In BTEC Sport 100% of students achieved at least Distinctions with many
Distinctions starred.

Nearly half of our students will be joining Russell Group Universities, and Aaron Lardi-Boakye
has secured his place at Cambridge to study Land Economy after receiving A*, A, A grades. A
number of students have also elected to undertake degree apprenticeships including those
at Morgan Stanley, Accenture and IBM.

Student highlights include Manuel Leye-Huerta who got 3 A*s and an A and will be going to
Imperial College London to study Mathematics and Haseeb Rauf got 3 A*s and will be going
to Bristol University to study Law. Muhammad Kausar Ahmed, Kobi Concepcion, Kazi Amani
Hussain, Kaliyah Ogun, Ethan Suppaya-Palomino all got 2 A*s and 1 A.

Cambridge-bound Aaron said, “I am absolutely ecstatic. I can’t believe it. None of this would
have been possible without the school. The community, the academic approach, the support
– it is truly amazing.”

Ethan said, “I’m feeling overwhelmed, but relieved. I am excited about going off to UCL to
study Philosophy. I am so incredibly grateful for everything the school has done for me over
the last seven years.”

Elsie Mowles, who is off to Southampton to study English, said, “I am absolutely over the
moon with my results – it was such a good surprise! I worked hard, and it has paid off. I can’t
say thank you enough to my teachers. They have been amazing.”

Farhana Begum said, “I’m feeling so happy. I’m going to Warwick to study International
Relations and Politics after getting AAC in my results. I’m so glad I came to St Bon’s – I
wouldn’t have done it without the support of the school and teachers.”

Amani Hussain, who is taking up a 4 year apprenticeship at Morgan Stanley, said, “There
are no words to describe this feeling. I got 2 A*s and an A. I had a massive support system
here at St Bonaventure’s and I am incredibly grateful.”

Director of Sixth Form, Mr Templeman, said “I am so proud of our Year 13s for their
discipline and drive to succeed; it has all paid off. Students arrive with a wide range of GCSE
grades and with the pastoral care that is offered here, they thrive and feel supported
throughout their 6th Form journey. As ever it allows them to fulfil their potential and make the
most of their two years with us. I know they will all go off to achieve amazing things.
Although in some ways this is the end of their journey here at St Bon’s, they will always be a
part of our family and legacy. I wish them all the best and we hope that they come back and
visit us soon!”
