Students at Whitmore High School are celebrating a fantastic set of results for the school, as they prepare for an exciting future.

Sixth Form students at the school, in Porlock Avenue, Harrow, were jumping for joy on their big day after they collected their A-level scores.

Harry Turner is off to Birmingham University to study History after doing brilliantly, with an A* in English Language and Literature, an A* in Government and Politics, and an A* in History.

He said: "I have really enjoyed my time at Whitmore and certainly won’t forget it.

"I’m now looking forward to going to university and further improving my skills in History – although I’m certainly going to miss my friends and family."

A-level results: students at St Mark's Catholic School in Hounslow score 93.1 per cent A*-C passes  

Also among the students celebrating was Oliver Hurcum, the chair of Harrow Youth Parliament who is now Oxford University bound to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics.

He said: "It’s been a great last couple of years – so relieved that the work seems to have paid off."

Oliver got an A* in History, alongside an A in English Literature and an A in Philosophy.

He added: "Best years still to come – fingers crossed - a career in politics is most definitely not the plan. 

"A nice quiet life in academia for me if all goes well."

 

Johnathan Rhamie was another star performer, getting an A in English Literature, a B in History and an A* in Art.

He is now off to Kings College London, where he will study Post-Colonial Literature, but says he hopes to still find time to work on his art.

He said: "After university I hope to promote change for a more equal society. 

"I deeply appreciate the support from my subject teachers and look forward to continuing to evolve and develop.

Headteacher Sue Hammond said:  “I am delighted with these results which are a tribute to the hard work of students and staff here.  

"These students have set the standard for future years with their results, wider contribution to the community and, importantly, their sense of fun."
