Celebrations are underway across the borough as students receive their results.

Sixth formers at St Anne’s Catholic High School for Girls, in Oakthorpe Road, Haringey, are looking forward to the next stage of their lives.

Flocks of students lined up outside the school at 10am to find out whether they had made it into their first choice universities.

Stephanie George, 17, achieved a B in law and sociology, a C in sociology and a distinction in psychology.

Her grades mean she has gained a place at the University of Kent to study law and criminology.

She said: “I am looking forward to going to university, as I am excited to start something new. I am happy I got in.”

Shannon Boateng, 18, who is heading to Northampton University to study childhood studies, said: “I’m over the moon. I’m very pleased with my results.”

Many students praised the support of their teachers, who were also on hand to provide advice and guidance for those going through the clearing process.

Precious Robinson-Bailey, 18, achieved an A in sociology, a B in religious studies, and a B in Drama. She is heading to the University of Westminster to study business management.

She said: “I am really content. The revision process was tough. It was hard but I am glad I persevered.

“I am looking forward to trying something new, and a new environment. I’ve spoken to all my teachers, and they are proud of me. There was so much support, it has been the best place.”

While students in the upper sixth were gearing up to move to campuses round the country, lower sixth pupils were preparing for their final year at school.

Mollie Berry, 17, achieved AABB in her AS-levels. She said: “I am really happy, especially since I got an A in English. Next year will be tough, but now I am motivated to study hard.”

Siobhan Gilling, who has been the headteacher at St Anne’s for three years, said: “We are really pleased with the results this year. The AS-levels have been particularly high.

“There are 140 students in our sixth form. It’s looking like everybody has got into their first choice, which is very pleasing.”
