After a considerable amount of hard work, despite the impact of the pandemic, our students are today receiving their A-Level results and celebrating their achievements. This is the case at Oasis Academy South Bank where the young people are looking forward to taking their next steps today after securing some phenomenal results.
Although all students received teacher assessed grades this year, many students have achieved superb individual results due to their hard work and dedication throughout their school and the last two years.
6 Students have secured places at Oxford and Cambridge. Four students are looking forward to studying Engineering, Natural Sciences, Land Economy and Human, Social & Political Sciences degrees at Cambridge. Jesse, who is going to Jesus College to study Engineering said, “I am so proud of my results and those of my friends, and I can’t wait to go on and study at one of the best universities on the planet. I’m grateful to all the teachers at OASB for helping me and their support.”
Jamelia and Fabbiha secured places at the University of Oxford to study Modern History and Engineering respectively. Best friends Ines (AAB - Psychology) and Flourish (A*A*A* - Medicine) will be going to study locally at King’s College London who have partnered with OASB for over 7 years now to provide university guidance to all students from when they started in Year 7.
Oyinda secured A*A*A*A grades and will be going to the University of Warwick to study Maths where she will be joined by Luis (A*AA) who will be studying Economics. Erald (A*AA) secured a highly competitive place at Loughborough University to study Sport and Exercise Science, and will be taking a gap year to pursue his footballing career before going in September 2022. The school also supported students who achieved better than predicted grades through the process of Adjustment – where they could ‘trade up’ their university offers for more competitive places. Through this route, Tamika (AAB) has been offered a place at the University of Nottingham to study International Relations.
Three students have been accepted onto the P&G Headstart Degree Apprenticeship through a partnership with The Elephant Group. During the three-year scheme Ibrahim Aires Dos Reis, Nathan and Aya will be studying towards a Chartered Management Degree at the University of Kent, while earning a salary working 4 days per week at P&G across Marketing, Branding and Sales.
Anna Richardson, Principal at Oasis Academy South Bank said: “This year’s results day has been a celebration of success in the face of an incredibly disrupted two years of study. The focus has been on destinations, so we’re delighted that every single student is leaving our school with a job or university offer in hand, ready to start the next stage in life.
"It’s great to be here today to mark the individual achievements of our young people who have demonstrated such resilience, particularly when studying online and preparing for assessments during such an uncertain time. We are deeply proud of them and wish them well for the future. A huge credit too, all the staff from across the Academy and Community Team who have done all in their power to make sure our students succeeded during lockdown – many of our Sixth Form students have been with us throughout their secondary education and so today is the culmination of many years of study and progress."
"The range of destinations – from specialist courses, to vocational, technical and academically elite destinations shows how much tailored support our Sixth Form provides to all of its students. Special thanks to our Sixth Form team led by Matthew Holmes.”
Matthew Holmes, Head of Year 12 and 13 at Oasis Academy South Bank added; “We are thrilled for all of our students on their results today – they have worked hard and reaped the rewards. We wish them all the best on their next steps, wherever that may be. Their collective achievements are very well-deserved and will be an inspiration to the younger students. We look forward to welcoming them back to inspire the next generation soon.”
