Our sixth form students received their A Level results at Hucknall Sixth Form Centre today, with some excellent outcomes.

This year’s top performer, Abby Stafford, received A*s in English literature, English language and film studies and is going to the University of Warwick to study English literature and creative writing. On receiving her results, Abby said: “I feel good, I’m so relieved to get these results. The pit has gone from my stomach!”

Another student who was thrilled with today’s results was Amina Thanni. Amina achieved a grade A in psychology, Distinction* in applied law, a B in English literature and an A* in her extended project qualification. She will be studying law at The University of Sheffield. Amina said: “Looking at my results makes me realise just how hard I’ve worked and the excellent support I have had from teachers at HSFC through lockdown. I am very pleased to be going to The University of Sheffield.”

Queen Elizabeth’s Academy principal, Kimberley Willmot, said: “I am delighted that, despite a challenging year, the hard work and dedication of our students has paid off with this impressive set of results. I wish them all the very best in their considerably bright futures and look forward to seeing what they achieve next.”
