Commenting on students’ successes, Leon Wilson, Executive Principal at Lambeth Academy, said:
“These achievements speak for themselves and are testament to the determination and ambition of our Sixth Formers, through what have been a difficult few years due to the pandemic. Our Year 13s have been a pleasure to teach and can take immense pride in their success today, knowing that they have challenged themselves to achieve the very best throughout their studies.
“To have students achieving so many of the highest grades and prestigious university offers is not just a credit to students, but to our excellent staff team. Their commitment to helping students thrive and excel is outstanding and I would like to thank everyone involved.”
Amy Welch, Principal at Lambeth Academy, said:
“As a Head Teacher, it is always hugely rewarding to see students celebrating their A Level and equivalent results at the end of seven years of study. Their pride today is well deserved as they take their next steps in life and onto university, confident in what their hard work has already achieve.
“It is particularly gratifying that, as our school embarks a new chapter as The Elms Academy next month, we do so with such a strong set of A Level results. This success will help provide further inspiration for our younger year groups, who I know are just as ambitious for their own futures. We are excited to see what our students will achieve in years to come at The Elms.”
